说不的男子

  A Man Who Said No

  A friend of mine noticed a man staggering about in the Times Square subway station. A well-dressed Wall Street type, his coat was unbuttoned, a briefcase dangled from his hand and he'd obviously had one too many.

  Asked if he was all right, the man gave a slurred but affirmative response. However, my friend simply could not see someone brave the rough maw of a New York subway without trying to help. He followed the chap, and again asked, "Are you sure you're all right? What subway are you looking for? Do you need help getting home?"

  At last, the object of his attentions snarled, in a low voice, "Leave me alone! I'm an undercover cop!"

  我的一位朋友看到一个男子在时代广场的地铁车站摇摇晃晃地走。那个人穿着时髦,敞着怀,一个手提箱在他的手里悬吊着,很明显他是多喝了一杯。

  我朋友问他怎么样,那男子含糊而肯定地回答说没问题。然而我朋友就是不能眼看着有人在纽约地铁独入是非之地而置之不顾。他跟在那家伙的后面,又一次问道:“你肯定你没事?你在找哪个地铁站?你需要帮忙回家吗?”

  他所注意的对象终于忍耐不住了,对他低声咆哮道:“你给我走开!我是便衣警察!”
