This friend was a taxi driver and boasting about the fact that he was as old as a quarter of a century. The man thought to himself, “When I’m a quarter of a century, I won’t be driving a taxi.” (Sayrafiezadeh, Page 6) This was an example of a situational irony because the man thought was that he was going to be successful by the time he was twenty-five, but he was going down an equally awful path. He was making only $7.50 an hour, which could have easily been less than what a taxi driver made.The fact that the man felt that by the age he would be twenty-five years old, he would be onto brighter things. The narrator, who is the man then went on to say, “I had dreams of grandeur. I didn’t know how to get there, but I knew that it would work out.” (Sayrafiezadeh, Page 6) Having dreams of grandeur literally means that he had dreams of becoming of high rank or social importance, but he did not know how it was going to happen for him, he just knew it would.

In the beginning, it was difficult for us to find an apartment and new jobs. We used to live with our uncle since we weren’t aware of the leasing process of an apartment.

I also got a part-time job at the gas station for the weekend, so it doesn’t influence my grades and education.
I have been looking for a vehicle for several months now. All I had to do was wait for my brother to pay me from babysitting during the summer before I could officially pick out a vehicle. When my brother finally paid me two weeks ago I was excited because that meant that I wouldn’t have to be driven around by my mom or have her permission to borrow her car to go somewhere. When I get the vehicle I want in the right price range then I will have just enough money left over to get insurance and tags and gas for about a month or two. However, I will not have enough money just on hand to pay for gas all the time which means I would need a job which I have been looking for too.
My study continues with me moving to the USA and Americanizing myself with everything, but the pizza we had in America. My story concludes with my father taking me to a well-known pizza place in New York, at which I learn the valuable life lesson of trying new things.

This is why I chose to emulate his scene and first paragraph at the beginning so heavily.
