The Shepherd's Boy

(2005-11-28 15:01:47)

        A man had a fine flock of sheep , and hired a boy to take care of them .

After while , the boy began to wish that something would happen ; it was so tiresome staying there all alone , with no one to speak to , and nothing to do . All at once he thought to himself :" I will make them think the wolf has come . That will be great fun ."

So he called out as loudly as he could , " Help ! help ! The wolf !" and all the men came running up . When they found it was only a joke , they laughed , and went back to their work .

Still the boy didn't give it up . Again and again he shouted " wolf ! wolf !" till at last the men took no notice of him when he called them , no matter how loudly or how long he shouted .

After a while , the wolf did get into the field . Then the boy called and called in real terror :" Help me ! The wolf is killing the sheep . The wolf ! The wolf !" But no one gave heed to his cries . So the wolf left few of them uninjured .

This story tell us : When one is believed to be untruthful , no one will take his word .

 

 

                                 牧羊小男孩

 

一个人养了一群很漂亮的羊,雇了一个小男孩看守。

过了一段时间,小孩很想有点什么新鲜玩意儿;没有人说说话,没有事情做,孤身独处是很无聊的。忽然他想道:“我要叫他们以为狼来了,那才有意思哩。”

因此,他大喊:“救救我呀!救救我呀!狼来啦!”所有人都跑来了。当他们知道只是开玩笑,便笑着回去干自己的事。

小孩这种捉弄人的做法仍不改变,再三再四地喊:“狼来啦!狼来啦!”到后来他喊大家时,不管嗓门多大,时间多久,人们不去理他了。

不久,狼窜进草地。这时孩子真怕了,连声喊叫:“快来救我!狼在吃羊呀!有狼呀!”但是没有人理会他。因此活下来的羊所剩无几了。

这个故事告诉我们:一个人不诚实,就没有人相信他的话。
