The Lady and the Parrot

女士與鸚鵡

 

A lady was walking to work when she saw a parrot on a perch in front of a pet store. The parrot said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." Well, the lady was furious! She stormed past the store to her work.

有一位女士在步行去上班途中,看見一隻鸚鵡棲息在一間寵物店前面。鸚鵡對她說:「嗨!女士,妳真醜!」當然,女士非常生氣,她過寵物店去上她的班。

 

On the way home she saw the same parrot and it said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." She was incredibly angry now. 

返家途中,她看見同一隻鸚鵡對她說:「嗨!女士,妳真醜!」她現在氣極了。

 

The next day, the same parrot again said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." The lady was so annoyed that she went into the store and said that she would sue the store and kill the bird. The store manager apologised profusely and promised he would make sure the parrot didn't say it again. 

隔天,相同的鸚鵡再一次對她說:「嗨!女士,妳真醜!」這位女士非常惱怒,她進入商店,說她要控告商店,把鳥宰掉。商店經理連聲道歉,並且答應一定會讓鸚鵡不再說那一句話。

 

When the lady walked past the store that day after work the parrot called to her, "Hey lady." She paused and said, "Yes?" The bird said, "You know."

當天,這位女士下班走經商店的時候,鸚鵡喊她:「嗨!女士。」她停下腳步回答:「什麼事?」鳥說:「妳知道。」
