Mr. Smith arrived his office in a hurry, an hour late. He was banged and bruised, and he had one arm in a sling. His clothes were torn and tattered.

史密斯先生匆忙地到達辦公室,遲到一小時。他被撞到瘀傷,一隻手懸著吊帶,他的衣服被撕到破爛。

His boss was purple with rage. "Look at your watch, it's ten o'clock," screamed the boss, "you were supposed to be here at nine. What happened?"

他的老闆氣的臉色發紫:「看看你的錶,十點鐘了!」老闆吼叫著,「你應該九點就到了,怎麼回事?」

"I'm sorry," explained Mr. Smith, "I fell out of nine-story window."

"Then that took you a whole hour?"

「很抱歉」史密斯先生解釋:「我從九樓窗口掉下來」

「那麼那花了你整整一小時嗎?」
