Blue-Collar Journal By John Royston Coleman
Text Organization Part I (Paras. 1-3) The writer had a half day off and did a brief shopping in the Faneuil Hall markets, finding that there seems to be a distance between white-collars and blue-collars. He was happy to feel the friendliness among blue-collar workers. Part II (Paras. 4-12) Working as a sandwich man, the writer was called “boy” by a waitress and got annoyed. He felt that people tend to show no respect for blue- collar workers.
Part III (Paras. 13-17) The writer had lunch at a downtown restaurant and was thought to be crazy when he send his compliments to the sandwich man for his good work. He realized that the hard work of blue-collar workers is often overlooked. Part IV (Paras. 18-20) The writer had a hard day working at the Oyster House and bothered by the routine work, yet he was happy that there is enough variety in the flow of orders and of people. Part V (Paras. 21-32) The writer worked as a trashman and found that the society had provided little care for the health of trashmen. He thinks that respect and support should be given to them.

This was just a noticeable example of the fact that people here didn’t show any respect for blue-collars.
Part III (P. 13-17): Compliment on the work Stuff-vt. 塞满, 填满, 填充 Fillet- 肉片, 鱼片 Win out-to succeed after great difficulty
Part IV (P. 18-20) 1) 到现在，每天、甚至每周七天的工 作节奏，我已足够熟悉了，这份工作对 我来说应该显得乏味了。但事实上我并 没有感到乏味。因为点菜单和客人五花 八门、形形色色，以至于我很少觉得， 每天的工作以前已经经历过了。
Part V (P. 21-32): Trashman work How did the training course go? How was the work division? How did I do my job? The load is too heavy for me. The sanitation men in Haverford The people I worked with The two mysteries cleared up
