Mike likes to play football and has been in a sports club for seven years. During the Christmas season, the trainer always organizes a Christmas party. This year, however, the trainer broke his leg and asks the team for help with the organization. Mike immediately signs up to help and even brings a few new ideas to the planning.
In my part-time job as a copying assistant I often had problems with one of the copiers. It often did not work and had to be repaired. I always attempted to fix a paper jam or a broken photocopier before asking a more experienced colleague to help. Nine times out of ten, I fixed the problem myself and didn't have to stop my colleagues from their work to help me.
