概述： 如果有人正好碰到，问‘你是给垃圾公司开车吗?’我就说是。。。 Hints: 无
If someone comes right out and asks, 'Do you drive for a garbage company?' I say yes. I believe we're doing a service people need, like being a police officer or a fire fighter. I'm not ashamed of it, but I don't go around boasting about it either." "A friend of my wife yelled at her kids one day when they ran out to meet a trash truck. 'Stay away from those trashmen. They're dirty.' I was angry with her. 'They're as good as we are,' I told her. 'You seem to have a lot of sympathy for them,' she said. 'Yes, I do.' But I never told her why." I had originally planned to stay at this employment for only two days but now I'm going to continue. The exercise is great; the lifting gets easier with every load, even if my shoulder muscles are sore. I become faster and neater each day.
如果有人正好碰到，问‘你是给垃圾公司开车吗?’我就说是。我相信我们做的事是人们所需要的，就像当警察或者消防队员一样。我并不为此而感到见不得人，可我也不会到处去吹嘘自己的工作。” “有一天，我妻子的一个朋友见到她孩子从家里跑出来看垃圾车，她就大声叫嚷起来，‘离那些垃圾工远点，他们身上脏’。我很生她的气。我说，‘那些垃圾工和我们一样干净。’‘你好像很同情他们似的，’她说。‘是的，我是很同情他们。’可我从没有告诉她这是为什么。” 这活儿我原先只打算干两天，可现在我要干下去。这可锻炼人呢，虽然肩部肌肉酸痛，可我扛垃圾桶越扛越得心应手了。我越干越快，越干越利索。
