你叫什么名字? What's your name?

  What's your name?

  A very strict officer was talking to some new soldiers whom he had to train. He had never seen them before,so he began:My name is Stone, and I'm even harder than stone,so do what I tell you or there'll be trouble. Don't try any tricks with me, and then we'll get on well together

  Then he went to each soldier one after another and asked him his name. Speak loudly so that everyone can hear you clearly, he said, and don't forget to call me 'sir'.

  Each soldier told him his name, unitl he came to the last one. This man remained silent, and so Captain Stone shouted at him, When I ask you a question, answer it! I'll ask you again: What's you name, soldier?

  The soldier was very unhappy, but at last he replied. My name is Stonebreaker, sir. He said nervously.

  你叫什么名字?

  有一位很严厉的军官在对一群交由他训练的新兵训话。他以前从没见过这群新兵,于是他开始自我介绍:我的名字叫Stone(石头),事实上,我甚至比石头更强硬。这就是我为什么要告诉你们我名字的原因。不要试图对我玩什么花招,这样我们就能很好相处了。

  接着他开始走到每个士兵前面问他们的名字。说大声点,让每个人都能听清楚。另外,不要忘记称呼我为长官。他说。

  每个士兵都对他说了自已的名字。他走到最后一位士兵面前时,这个士兵保持着沉默。于是Stone队长对他喊叫,当我问你问题的时候,要回答!我再问一遍,你的名字,士兵?

  那个新兵很不高兴,但最后他回答了。我的名字是Stonebreaker(碎石机),长官。他紧张的说。

  Creative

  Applying for my first job, I realized I had to be creative in listing my few qualifications(资格证书,职位要求) . Asked about additional schooling and training, I answered truthfully that I had spent three years in computer programming classes. I got the job.

  I had neglected to mention that I took the same course for three years before I passed.

  创造性

  第一次求职时,我意识到在列举我所具备的为数不多的条件时,得有点创造性。当问及我是否受过其它的培训时,我老实地回答说我花了三年时间学计算机程序设计课。我得到了那份工作。

  我没有提到那门功课我重复学了三年才考及格。
