一位新上任的(new)年轻军官(young officer)在火车站(railway station)候车。他要去看望(visit)他的母亲(mother)。他想打电话(want to telephone sb.)告诉(tell)母亲他的列车(train)到站的时间。但寻遍了所有的口袋(pocket),却发现(find)他没有打电话用的硬币(coin),于是他走到车站外面(outside),环顾四周(look around)想找人帮忙(help)。

最后(at last)有名老兵(old soldier)路过,年轻的军官拦住他道:“你有十便士(pence)的零钱(change)吗?”

“等会儿(wait a moment)。”老兵回答(answer),开始(begin)把手放(put)进口袋,“让我看看是否(whether)能帮助你。"

"难道你不知道(know)该怎样跟一位长官说话(speak)吗?”年轻人生气地(angrily)说,“现在我们重新开始(start again),你有十美分的硬币吗?”

“没有,长官(sir)。”老兵迅速(quickly)答道。
