As the taxi came to a screeching halt at a traffic light,I asked the driver,”Do you agree that ‘Time is money’?”
當計程車在紅綠燈前緊急煞車,我問司機:「你同意時間就是金錢嗎?」

“Well,it’s a very common saying.Who will care so much about that?”the driver answered .
司機回答:「嗯,這是非常普通的諺語,誰會這麼在乎呢?」

“Look,the digits in the meter are still running when the car has stopped,”I pointed at the meter.
「看,當車子停下時,在碼表中的數字仍然在跑。」我指著碼表說。

“Oh.yes.You’ve got a point here,In this case,time is money for both of us,”added the driver.
「喔,是的,你抓到重點了,在這個情況下,對我們兩個而言,時間都是金錢。」司機補充說。
