1st Year Bac Test 04

We thought that a computer would be an ideal gift for our three-year-old son because it would be educational. My husband, Jeff, brought one home and set it up on the table in the living-room. Switching on the machine, Jeff started to play the space-invaders game that came with it. I joined in, competing against him. It was good fun for half an hour but then I grew bored and watched TV instead. However, Jeff remained glued to the screen for the whole evening, and the next day he stayed up until 2 a.m. From then on, first thing every morning he sat at the computer, eating cornflakes while he played. At night I’d cook a meal and he’d eat it without stopping. He stopped talking to me and to our little boy, Owen and lost interest in everything else. When he wasn’t asleep or at work he played games. He’d stay up until 3 a.m. becoming exhausted but unable to tear himself away. He could hardly go to work in the morning.
One day, he arrived home unexpectedly and said he had lost his job. The factory manager had complained about his lateness and Jeff had been dismissed. Now he could play his computer games all day without work getting in the way. I struggled to do everything in the house. Jeff didn’t lift a finger to help, nor did he search for work. Yet before the computer came he had been very considerate. We survived on 77 pounds a fortnight. Yet from time to time he spent 20 pounds on a new game.
