Dan was the doorman of a club in a big city． Every day, thousands of people passed his door, and a lot of them stopped and said to him, "What's the time, please?"
After a few months, Dan said to himself, "I'm not going to answer all those stupid people any more．I'm going to go toa shop and buy a big clock． Then I'm going to put it up on thewall here." He bought a clock and put it up on the wall.
"Now people aren't going to stop and ask me the time." He said happily． But after that, a lot of people stopped everyday, looked at the clock and then said to Dan,"Is that clock right?"
丹在一个大城市的某个俱乐部当守门人。每天,有数千 人经过他的门口。其中许多人停下来问他：“请问，现在几 点？”
几个月后，丹自言自语：“我不想再回答这些蠢人提出的 问题了。我要去商店买一只大钟。然后把它挂在这儿的墙 上。”他买了一只钟，把它挂在了墙上。
