learn chinese in hong kong – A humorous story – learning Chinese -A Nail Or A Fly?

 

Mandarin Lesson

An old gentleman whose eyesight was failing came to stay in a hotel room with a bottle of wine in each hand. On the wall there was a fly which he took for a nail. So the moment he hung them on, the bottles fell broken and the wine spilt all over the floor. When a waitress discovered what had happened, she showed deep sympathy for him and decided to do him a favour.

 

So the next morning when he was out taking a walk in the roof garden, she hammered a nail exactly where the fly had stayed.

 

Now the old man entered his room. The smell of the spilt wine reminded him of the accident. When he looked up at the wall, he found the fly was there again! He walked to it carefully adn slapped it with all his strength. On hearing a loud cry, the kind-hearted waitress rushed in. To her great surprise, the poor old man was there sitting on the floor, his teeth clenched and his right hand bleeding!

 

 

釘子還是蒼蠅?
 

一位視力正在衰退的老紳士住進了一家旅館的客房。他雙手各拿一瓶酒。在牆上有隻蒼蠅,他誤以為是枚釘子。他把兩隻瓶子朝上一掛,瓶子掉下來摔碎了,酒灑了一地。一個女服務員發現發生的事情以後,對他深表同情,決定幫他個忙。

於是,第二天早上他到樓頂花園散步時,她把一枚釘子釘在了蒼蠅停過的地方。

  這裡,老人回到了房裡。倒灑的酒味讓他想起了那件事。他抬頭往牆上一看,蒼蠅又停在了那兒!他輕手輕腳地走近,使盡全力拍了一掌。聽到一聲大叫,好心的女服務員衝進房來。讓她大為吃驚的是,可憐的老頭正坐在地板上,牙關緊咬,右手滴血不止。
