 四个老太婆 ( 1 )

生活中总有些事情容易让人难忘.记得我初到英国才几个月的时候,在威尔士首府卡迪夫上班.那天下班后我到一家商店去买灯泡,要买就是1镑钱十个-一整盒.面对热情又漂亮的服务员,我稍微犹豫了一下,因为我没经历过要买就一打的事情,再说,当时心里总是拿英镑和人民币对比价值,工作地点又经常变动,我非要花16元出头的人民币买一盒吗?不就为能让宿舍更亮一点,多加一盏灯吗?

就在我犹豫的这片刻间,身后一位英国老太太开口了:“你不用买一盒了,我正好要买一盒,送你一只就是了!”我不好意思地看看老太太,心里又多了一层考虑。就在我迟疑的瞬间,老太太付了款-她的取货框里装了许多东西,但并没有灯泡,说明她原本是不打算买灯泡的。她将我挑好的灯泡拿了过去,付了钱,然后抽出一只送给我。我不知道说什么好,又推辞不了,只好接受了。

多少天以后的一个大早,我又看到了她,她并不记得我了(英国人眼里,中国人基本是同一张脸)。我看到她在一家慈善店门口放了一只很大的包裹后,就回到自己的小车,伴随着轻轻的马达发动声,离开.

我知道,每天都有这样的英国人,将自家的至少7成新的衣物送到那些地方,任凭有困难的人们免费取走。近几年,东欧人可从那儿发了不少财.他们收集起来,开车送回自己祖国,都卖了好价钱.

 Something  you can’t forgot it !  Remembered when I start living in Britain  for the first several months  , I  was worked in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales . One afternoon I went into a shop buying a bulb , felt strange that - if you want to buy 1 bulb ,you should buy a dozen . Facing the passionate beautiful saleslady , I did little shilly-shally  . because  I’d never experienced a purchase   like this way in my Chinese life ,and also ,always calculated any spending  on   the rate  between pound and renminbi.  One pound was worth 16.54  Yuan , How can I use more than 16 Yuan  to buy a dozen bulb witch  just for brighter my room as an additional  facility  ? And in the other word, our job  was uncertain and movable .

While I was in stutter, a old lady, who was in the queue just behind me , spoke out ‘ you needn’t buy a dozen, and I will give you one for free as  I’d buy a dozen’ . Heard her speech, I even thought more about. But it was so quick that she paid cash  include a box of dozen bulb of my favorite . her basket was being full without any bulb . She gave me one from that bomb box ,  it was so clearly that the purchase of bulb she did was only for me ! I don’t know  how to say , and I can’t refuse her gift though.

Many days later ,   I saw her again in a early  morning , she may forgot me ( in British eyes the Chinese faces were similar ). I seen her put down a big parcel at the front door of a charity shop and then came back into her car , driven away in a TATA  motor’s sounds.

Everyday  as I known  there were lot of British like her sent their donation   which always  were nearly new cloths or something else to help poor people

Who could take it away for free . those from east European recently years earned much money from this that they collected and stored and sent it back to their hometown for sales.
