  • 英语趣味故事:"Ditto" “同上”

    本文语音阅读 播音源:Aitong

    At the gate of a big office in London there was a book.All the clerks(职员)had to write down their names in it when they arrived each morning.At nine o'clock,the manager's secretary,who lived in a small room above the offices,had to draw a red line under the last name in the book.When someone came after that,he had to explain why he was late.
    If there was a thick fog(雾)in the city,the first person to arrive late usually wrote"Be late by fog"under the red line in the book.Everyone else after him just put"ditto"
    But one foggy morning,the first man to arrive late wrote"my wifehad a baby early this morning"instead of"Delayed(耽搁)by fog"un der the red line in the book.After that,over thirty men and women put "ditto"under that as usual.
    When the manager got the news,he told the secretary to inform(通知)all the leaders in the office to prepare gifts for each new baby.However,the secretary asked,"Isn't it strange that women have wives?"
