Давайте учить английский

Изучение языка - это путешествие в страну нового и интересного, свобода разговаривать с носителями и не чувствовать себя глухонемым в их компании. Но за частую процесс изучения отбивает всю охоту. Я расскажу о том, как это делать приятно и с пользой.

Some humor as a starter

Опубликовано: 20 июня 2013 в 15:22


I wish I had the guts (буквально — кишки, переносное — смелость) of this girl. An award (награда) should go to the United Airlines gate Agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted (столкнулась) with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo (груз). For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate (раздраженный) customer, this one is for you.

And here is the story.

A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced (обеспокоенный) travelers.

Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped (щлепнуть) his ticket on the counter and said, «I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS! „

The agent replied, “I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks (ребята, молодые люди) first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out. „

The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, “DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM? „

Without hesitating (колебание), the Agent smiled, and grabbed (схватить) her public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please? » — her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal — «We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14 immediately. „

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared (пристально смотреть) at the United Airlines agent, gritted (стиснуть) his teeth, and loudly said, “F*** You! „

Without flinching (не дрогнув), she smiled and replied, “I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too! „

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.Keep calm and carry on!
