Ebenezer Scrooge was, as we all know, a very mean man. He hated spending money; in fact, he kept all his money in his house because he didn’t think it would be safe in the bank! Bob Cratchit was his assistant and he worked in Scrooge’s office. Bob didn’t like his boss very much. Scrooge didn’t pay Bob very high wages, even though he was actually a very rich man. Bob couldn’t quit his job because he needed the money. Nowadays, we still use the name ‘Scrooge’ for a mean person!
