  The Advantage of Noise

  Wherever I drove my old car over 55 miles per hour ,it vibrated terribly, so I decided to sell it. My first customer wanted to buy the car, and I battled with my conscience over whether or not to tell him of the vehicle's problem. Finally I did the right thing. Expecting him to drop the deal, I was surprised by his reply.

  "That's okay," he said. "I'm buying this car for my daughter. If she complains about a vibration, I'll know she's driving too fast. "

  Notes:

  (1) advantage n.优点;好处

  (2) vibrate v.震动;颤动

  (3) conscience n.良心

  (4) deal n.交易;成交

  (5) complain about 对…进行抱怨

  每当我驾驶我那辆旧车时速超过55英里时,它就剧烈地震动起来,所以我决定卖掉它。我的第一位买主想买这辆车。围绕是否告诉他这辆车的问题,我经历了一番与良心的较量。终于我做对了。

  我想他会放弃这个交易,却对他的回答吃了一惊。

  “那没什么,”他说,“我是给我女儿买这车的。如果她抱怨震动的话,那我就知道她开得太快了。”
