问心无愧?


按:

辅导孩子读“新概念”,到了A clear conscience这一篇,惊了:这故事像极了D-force中那个黑客把2400万偷走又偷偷送回来的新事。把主人公替换为咕噜,就更像啦——虽然即偷即送,而且送回来并非因为良知。

原文短而有趣,可以先看英文。

The whole village soon learnt that a large sum of money had been lost. Guru, the local butcher,had lost his wallet while taking his savings to the post office. Guru was sure that the wallet must have been found by one of the villagers,but it was not returned to him.

Three months passed, and then one morning, Guru found his wallet outside his front door. It had been wrapped up in newspaper and it contained half the money he had lost, together with a note which said:“A thief, yes, but only 50 percent a thief”Two months later,some more money was sent to Guru with another note:“Only 25 percent a thief now!”In time, all Guru's money was paid back in this way. The last note said:“ I am 100 percent honest now!”

整个币乎屯很快传开,有一大笔钱丢了。村里的屠户咕噜把存款送往邮局的途中把钱包丢了。咕噜确信那钱包一定被人捡到了,可是却不见有人送还给他。

3个月后的一天早晨,咕噜在自家大门外,发现了他的钱包。钱包是用报纸包着的,里面有他丢失的钱的一半,而且附着一张字条,上面写着:“一个小偷,是的,但只是50%的小偷。”过了两个月,又有一些钱送还给了咕噜,又附了一张字条:“这回只是25%的小偷了!”很快,咕噜全部的钱都用同样的方式还了回来。最后的那张字条上写道:“我现在是一个100%的诚实人了!”
