Friend (14) –Car Park Entrance Gate (Barriers) / 朋友(14)- 闸门

Posted on


这个闸门在外人看来象个傻瓜似的,车来举臂,车走放下。工作毫无意义,毫无乐趣,在虚度人生。

In the eyes of others, this barrier looks like a fool, it jiggles its arm up and down whenever a vehicle comes up or goes down.  Its job is no fun at all and to some is wasting life after-all.

这小人物坚守一份小工作, 任劳任怨, 做起事来不闻不问,不问付出,不求收获,一整天只会抬头点头,举臂放下。它的唯一工作就是听从指示,不可以有意见,不可以有投诉。

Still, this little guy stick to his insignifficant work.  He is hard working, never ask for much, never ask for returns and is able to get things done in a different.  Day in day out, he jiggles his head and waggle his arms.  His only job is to follow directions. He doesn’t own his opinions or have his own grievances.

试问,除了它有谁做得到?

How can anyone do this, other than him?

答案是有的;就是那些没有感情的机器。举凡桌上的电脑,厨房的冰箱,24小时开放的手机还有那令人舒服的空调等等。它们就是那一群任劳任怨的傻瓜。

Certainly there is!  These are machines without feelings.  Whether it is a computer on the table, the kitchen refrigerator, our 24/7 mobile phone, the comfort providing air-conditioner and so on.  Again, these are groups of hard working fools.

但有谁会跟这些傻瓜说声谢谢?那他岂不是也变成傻瓜?

However, who will thank these fools?  Perhaps only fools will appreciate what these fools had done?

我们真的不需要跟它们说谢谢,唯一可做的是心里多一分感激,两分珍惜,三分欢喜,这样就行了。

Indeed we need not thank them for what they done, the things we can do is to show a little gratefulness, a little cherishing and a little delighting.

这样一来,当它们罢工时,你就会多一分包容,少一分埋怨,青春永驻。

By demonstrating, you feel more accommodating, less awful and that’s helpful way to stay youthful.
