I Never Work after Supper 我饭后从不工作
A penny-pinching farmer didn’t want his hired hand to stop working. One morning, he told the farmhand, “It’s such a nuisance to come in from the field, wash up for lunch and take time to eat. Why don’t we save time and eat lunch now?”
The hired man agreed. The farm’s wife brought in some cold meat and fried potatoes, and the two men ate again.
When they had finished, the cheap farmer said, “While we’re still at the table, let’s have supper too.”They were now served steak, boiled potatoes and mixed vegetables, and they ate once more.
“Now that the meals are out of the way, ” the farmer announced, “we can go out and work all day without interruption. ”
“Oh, no,” the farmhand answered. “I never work after supper.”
