  Lesson: 课文

  Paying for the Bill 付帐

  Paying for the bill is always a touchy issue. This is especially confusing when you are dealing with someone from a different culture. Here are several different situations to help you figure out who is paying.

  付帐一直是一个敏感的话题。如果对方有着不同的文化,情况就更复杂了。下面的场景会告诉你究竟谁应该付帐。

  1) You are taking a girl out that you like. In this situation, you should be prepared to pay for the bill. Sometimes the girl will insist on paying for half. In this case you need to be careful. If she is very insistent, you should let her pay, but if she only suggest once or twice you should pay.

  约一个你喜欢的女孩出去。 在这种情况下你应该做好付帐的准备。有时女孩儿会坚持付一半。这时你需要小心一点,如果她一味坚持就让她来付,如果她只是建议一两次,就由你来付。

  2) Going out with a friend or colleague. In this situation you are probably going to split the bill. However, if he says," Let me take you out...", "It's on me", "It's my treat", "Let me get it", or "I'll pick up the tab", these all mean that your friend will pay for the bill. If you agree on who is going to pay for the bill before the meal, you can still offer to pay at the end, but you should only offer once or twice and let him pay if he insists.

  与朋友或同事外出 在这种情形下你们可能要平分帐单。但是,如果他说:“我带你出去...”、“帐单算我的”、“我请客”、或“我来结帐”, 这就意味着你的朋友要付帐。如果你们在饭前已商量好谁付帐,你仍然可以在饭后提出付帐,但如果对方坚持的话你只要提出一两次就可以了。

  3) In case you are short on money, you should tell the person that you are going out to eat, and that you will need to borrow money before you go out to eat. Never assume that they will pay.

  如果你钱不够,这种情况下,你应该告诉对方你要跟着出去吃饭,你需要在出去之前借点儿钱。别想着别人会付帐。

  4) If someone tells you that they want to treat you before the meal, then you should allow them to pay without arguing too much. But, if they say it after the meal, then you can be more insistent and can decide for yourself, if you want to let them pay or not.

  如果有人在吃饭前定好说想请你,那你应该由对方付帐不必争执。但是,如果他们在饭后跟你说要请你,你就要更坚持一点,自己来决定是否由他们付帐。

  Dialogue

  Paying for the Bill 付帐

  Molly: That was a really good meal, Gordon.

  Gordon: It sure was. I couldn't eat another bite.

  Molly: Well, it is getting pretty late. I think we should go home.

  Gordon: You're right. I have to get up early to go to work tomorrow.

  Molly: Let's see how much the bill is.

  Gordon: Don't worry about it. Tonight is my treat.

  Molly: What are you talking about? We'll split the bill. We'll go Dutch.

  Gordon: No, I insist. I kept telling you that I would treat you to dinner, but I still haven't.

  Molly: No way, Jose. I know that you are a little short on cash at the moment. There's no need for you pay for the whole bill.

  Gordon: Alright, if that's the way you are going to be, we'll go Dutch.

  Molly: That's better. This way we will both have money to take a cab home; otherwise, you would probably have to walk.

  Gordon: Just promise you will let me treat you to dinner next week, OK?

  Molly: You've got a deal.

  Gordon: Great. Bye.

  Molly : Bye.

  莫莉:这顿饭真不错,戈登。

  戈登:是呀,我想再多一口也吃不下了。

  莫莉:现在已经很晚了,我们该回家了。

  戈登:你说的对,明儿早还要早起上班呢。

  莫莉:我们看看帐单吧。

  戈登:别管了,今晚我请客。

  莫莉:这怎么行,我们平分,AA制。

  戈登:不,我一定要付帐。我总是跟你说要请你吃晚饭,可一直没机会。

  莫莉:不行。我知道你现在缺钱,你不用付整个帐单。

  戈登:好吧,如果你要坚持的话咱们就AA制吧。

  莫莉:这样好一点。这样我们还会有钱打车回家,否则的话你可能要走回去。

  戈登:那你保证下周让我请你,好吗?

  莫莉:我保证。

  戈登:太好了,再见。

  莫莉:再见。
