  (一)

  When a rich man was about fifty, his only son was born. He and his wife were very pleased. They took good care of him and gave him all he wanted. When their son grew up, he didn’t do anything except gambling(赌博) all day. Soon he lost all his parents’ money to others. His parents did their best to stop him from gambling, but he didn’t listen to them at all and soon he sold the fields and houses. The old man and the woman were both angry about it and before long they died. From then on he lived nowhere. He couldn’t live any longer and nobody would lend money to him. He wanted to find work, but no one hired(雇) him. He had to beg from door to door in the daytime and sleep under a bridge at night.

  One day, when the young man was begging in the street, he met his aunt. The woman had pity on him and found work for him. She said,” I’ve found work for you. A cemetery(墓地) needs a doorkeeper(守门人). It’s the lightest work. You needn’t do anything there.”

   “Thank you very much,”the young man said happily and went to the cemetery at once.

  But two days later the young man came back and said to his aunt angrily, “All the persons in the cemetery are lying, but I have to sit there. It’s unfair(不公平的)!I can’t work there any more!”
