The story of Richard`s day (shows) the stress of modern life, but Richard could do a lot to help himself. In the first picture he (gets) ready to go and see Mr Patel. He (has had) a busy day so far. He (has been) to three meetings and he (has make) several phone calls. He (hurries) because he (does not want) to be late and he only (has) half an hour to get there. Then just as he (leaves) the office, the Managing Director (calls). What (does) Richard (do)? He (takes) the call and then he (blames) the Managing Director because he`s late. But it isn`t the Managing Director`s fault. She (does not know) that Richard (is going) to an important appointment, so she probably(thinks) that it`s a convenient time to talk. Richard`s stress comes from the fact that he (has not given) himself enough time for the journey. Then, while he (drives) to his appointment, he (becomes) more and more stressed. He`s late and Mr Patel is already waiting. Then an accident (happens), because Richard (is not concentrating) on the road.
