    本文语音阅读 播音源:Aitong

    Bill was very stingy(吝啬). He hated spending money. Whenever he had to buy something he always argued about the price and tried to bargain(讨价还价), even for the cheapest things.
    If he wanted to buy a can of fruit, for example and the shop keeper asked for $ 2. Bill would say, "Make it $1. 90 and I'll buy it."
    In this way he had saved several hundred dollars. And he would often show off(炫耀) him for his clevery.
    One day he had a veiy bad tooth and had to go to the dentist.The dentist looked at the tooth and said, This tooth will have to come out. It's too damaged to save."
    " How much do you charge to take out a tooth? "Bill asked.
    “ Forty dollars.” the dentist said.
    "Forty dollars!"Bill thought this was much too expensive.
    "How long will it take you to pull out the tooth? "he asked about two minutes, the dentist said.
    Bill could not believe what he was hearing. "Forty dollars for two minutes work!“ he shouted“ Thats robbery(抢)."
    The dentist smiled, You're right. she said,Thank you for telling me. I'll pull your tooth out very slowly. How about if I spend half an hour?”
