介绍:
Make some noise for today’s episode, which is all about peace and quiet. Tags: Travel, Daily Life Audio Index: Slow Dialog: 1:07 Explanations: 3:41 Fast Dialog: 15:12 After three days of travel and meetings, I returned to my hotel room ready for some downtime. All I wanted was some peace and quiet so I could get a good night’s sleep. ... [phone rings] Carl: Hello. Hotel staff: Hello, Mr. Mendez. I’m calling to welcome you to our hotel. I hope you’re finding everything to your satisfaction. Carl: Yes, yes. Everything’s fine. I just want to get some rest right now. Hotel staff: Of course, Mr. Mendez. If there’s anything we can do for you, don’t hesitate to ask. ... I hung up the phone and turned off the ringer. I didn’t want any more unsolicited phone calls. But then, there was a knock on the door. ... Hotel staff: Hello, sir. I’m here to turn down your bed. May I come in? Carl: I don’t need the bed turned down, thanks. ... Before I closed the door, I put the do-not- disturb sign on my door. I wanted no more interruptions. All of a sudden, a loud alarm went off. I opened my door and a hotel employee was explaining that there was a small fire in the kitchen and that the guests were being evacuated. We would have to leave the building immediately. I left my hotel room and wondered if there was a vast conspiracy to rob me of my sleep or if I’m just the unluckiest guy in the world! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
