Be Careful of an old Lady


old ladyเรื่องนี้เกี่ยวกับความเจ้าเล่ห์ของ the old lady (หลายคน = ladies – บางทีเรียก senior = คนสูงอายุ)

ซึ่งขณะนั่งรถประจำทาง (bus) ก็ส่งถั่ว (peanuts)  ให้คนขับรถ (bus driver) เป็นระยะจนคนขับรถสงสัย

ถามว่าทำไมไม่ทานถั่วล่ะ เอามาให้เขาทำไม อ่านดูซิว่า the old lady ตอบว่ายังไง

ฮา หรือไม่บอกด้วย

(บางครั้ง ฮาของฝรั่งไม่ค่อย ฮา ของไทย แต่ก็อยากให้เข้าใจและศึกษา เป็นความแตกต่างทางวัฒนธรรม culture difference)

A tour bus driver is driving with a bus load of seniors down a highway when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady. She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up.

After about 15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.

She repeats this gesture about five more times.

When she is about to hand him another batch again ….he asks the little old lady,

‘Why don’t you eat the peanuts yourself!

‘We can’t chew them because we’ve no teeth’, she replied.

The puzzled driver asks, ‘Why do you buy them then?’

The old lady replied, ‘We just love the chocolate around them.’

It pays to be careful around old people!!!

    Thank you! I needed something to make me smile this morning. We old ladies — sometimes called crones — are too often taken for granted. What’s inside my wrinkled old skin, however, is the same fiesty young thing I was 10 or 20 years ago.
