Jen's New Job

The history museum needed to recruit a new tour guide. The director interviewed dozens of applicants before he decided to hire Jen. She was chosen because she was friendly, punctual and had a great attitude.

历史博物馆需要招聘一名新的导游。主任在决定雇用珍之前,面试了几十位申请人。她被选中是因为她很友好,守时,态度很端正。

On her first day, Jen got to work and prepared to give her first tour. She looked at the names on the register. She saw that the Queen of England and a diplomat were visiting the museum. She thought, "It's my very first day, and I have to impress a monarch! I hope I don't humiliate myself in front of a person of such renown!"

第一天,珍去上班,准备开始她的第一次巡演。她看了看登记簿上的名字。她看见英国女王和一位外交官正在参观博物馆。她想:“这是我的第一天,我必须给君主留下深刻的印象!我希望我不要在这么有名的人面前丢脸!”

Jen was nervous. She took a deep breath and said, "Hello, everyone! I'm going to talk to you about the chronology of ancient Egypt." As she turned around to show the group some artifacts, she bumped into a fossil of an authentic elephant tusk. It fell to the ground and broke into a million pieces! "Oh no!" said Jen in a subtle voice. "I sure hope the rest of the tour goes better than this!"

珍很紧张。她深深地吸了一口气,说:“大家好!我要给你们讲讲古埃及的年代学。”当她转身向大家展示一些文物时,她撞上了一块真正的象牙化石。它掉到地上,摔成了一百万个碎片!“哦,不!”珍小声说。“我真的希望接下来的旅程能比这更好!”

The rest of the tour did not go any better. She tripped over an antique vase and broke a piece off of it. As she was reading an excerpt from a lyric poem, she sneezed and tore a page of the epic.

剩下的旅程也没有走得更好。她被一只古董花瓶绊了一下,摔了下来。她在读一首抒情诗的节选时,打了个喷嚏,撕下了一页。

参观结束后,珍向女王道歉。她说:“对不起,陛下。我是个糟糕的导游。让我把你花的钱退给你吧。”
