When I was a boy, I didn't have any hair on my head. So I was very shy. I liked to watch my friends play in the park. Sometimes I would join them, but most of the time I just watched them play.
Every day, we would see an old man walking in the park. He had big ears and no hair. We thought he was dumb (哑的). Every time when my friends saw him, they would say loudly, "Hey, Mr. Dumb, what's the time?” But they got no answer.
One early evening, I was standing outside my house, and I saw the old man coming. I was not with any of my friends and there were no other kids around to say the usual words of "greeting( 问候)”.
But how could I let the old man walk by without saying anything? So for the first time, I asked, “Hey, Mr. Dumb, what’s the time?"
The old man looked at me. Then he looked at his watch and answered, "It's six thirty. " I ran into my house and never said that "greeting" to the old man after that day.
The boy often played with his friends together.
The boy’s friends were very polite to the old man.
Neither the boy nor the old man had any hair on the head.
Actually, the old man could hear and speak.
At last ,the boy felt ashamed of what he did with the old man.
Renting a color television makes more sense than buying. Here’s why:
1. The longer you rent (租), the less you pay. Each year the monthly rate is reduced. You can reach a low rate of not much more than $12 a week.
2. Service is fast and free（免费）. We can have your set installed (安装) in two days. If anything goes wrong, we’ll have it fixed the same day or lend you another set while we’re mending it. And don’t forget: service and spare parts are free!
3. If you don’t have an aerial (天线), we’ll install one for you, and that will be free, too. All you have to pay is the installation charge (安装费)!
4. You can choose from all kinds of models, and what’s more, if after a certain period of time, and you would like a new model, you can change. How’s that for service?
5. No deposit (押金) is needed. You pay only the monthly rental fee. But if you pay in advance, you can save money. Pay twelve months’ fees when you begin to hire, and we’ll give you a month’s hire(雇用) without charge.
6. If you decide that you want to stop renting and buy the set you have on hire, this can be arranged—with a generous allowance (折扣) for the fees already paid.
