生活中有些困难并不像我们想象的那样可怕,而有些困难根本就是我们自己的猜测。

 

“Big John”

“大块头”

    One fine day, a bus driver went to the bus garage, started his bus, and drove off along his route. No problems for the first few stops – a few people got on, a few got off, and things went generally well.

    At the next stop, however, a big hulk of a guy got on. Six feet eight, built like a wrestler, arms hanging down to the ground. He glared at the driver and said, “Big John doesn’t pay!” and sat down at the back.

    The driver was five feet three, thin, and basically meek. Naturally, he didn’t argue with Big John, but he wasn’t happy about it.

    The next day the same thing happened – Big John got on again, made a show of refusing to pay, and sat down. And the next day, and the one after that, and so forth.

    This grated on the bus driver, who started losing sleep over the way Gig John was taking advantage of him. Finally he could stand it no longer. He signed up for body building courses, karate, judo, and all that good stuff. By the end of the summer, he gad become quite strong – what’s more, felt really good about himself.

    So on the next Monday, when Gig John once again got on the bus and said, “Gig John doesn’t pay!” the driver stood up, glared back at the passenger, and screamed, “Oh, yeah? And why not?”

    With a surprised look on his face, Big John replied, “Big John has a bus pass.”

 

    在一个天气晴朗的日子,一位公共汽车司机走进车库,发动了汽车,开始按着他日常的路线行驶。在最初的几站没什么问题-几个人上车,几个人下车,一切都很顺利。

    然而,当车开到下一站时,一个大块头上来了。他有六英尺八英寸高,长得就像一个摔跤手,他的手臂长得好像要碰到地上了。他瞪着司机喊道:“我不用买票!”然后就坐到了后面。

    这个司机只有五英尺三英寸高,很瘦弱,性格温顺。很自然的,他没有和那个大块头争论,但是他对此很不满。

    第二天同样的事发生了-那个大块头又上了车,还是表明自己不买票后就坐下了。第三天,第四天,以后一直如此。

    这件事激怒了公车司机。他开始为那个大块头欺负他的事而失眠。最终他受不了了。他报名为那个大块头欺负他的事而失眠。最终他受不了了。他报名参加了健身班,学习空手道,柔道和其他类似项目。到那年夏末,他已经变得非常强壮了-更重要的是,他对自己充满了自信。

    所以当下个周一那个大块头上车后向往常一样喊道“我不用买票”时,这位公车司机站了起来,盯着他高声叫道:“噢,是吗?为什么你不用买票?”那个大块头吃了一惊,说道:“因为我有通勤票。”
