In a driving examination, a boy felt so nervous that hecouldn’t concentrate on driving. He took a deep breath to make himself composed and placid. When a sign of turningleft appeared, he asked the insolent coach to confirm if heshould turn left. After hearing the “right” of the coach, the vigilant boy turned right without hesitation. With an abrupt brake of coach, the car slowed down to the state of stagnation. The acrimony on the face of the coach made the triumph even more difficult. He asks:” Why you turned to the reverse direction?” The poor boy couldn’t disguise the fear and nervousness and answered with tremble:” Youtold me to turn right!” The coach couldn’t suppress the wrath anymore, andscolded:” I mean yes, you should turn left. It is a serious transgression of traffic rules turning right on such acrossing!”


在一次驾驶考试中,男孩感到太紧张了,反而无法集中注意力。于是他深呼吸让自己镇静下来。当出现左转标志时,他问一脸傲慢的教练是不是应该左转。听到教练说“右(对的)”时,警觉的男孩毫不犹豫向右转。在教练突然的刹车后,车减速停止。教练脸上严厉的表情使他觉得取得胜利更加艰难了。教练问:“你为什么向反方向转?”可怜的男孩掩饰不住恐惧和紧张颤抖地回答:“你让我向右转的!”教练怒不可遏地训斥道:“我的意思是:是的,向左转。在这个路口向右转是重大违规!”
