意地悪

ある中国語を話すカップルが私の隣の窓口へやってきて質問しました。

"Do you speak English?"

隣の窓口に座っていた私の同僚は私を指しながら言いました。

"No. She can speak English. Please wait."

私が対応していた客が終わると、彼らは私の窓口へ来ました。話してみると、彼らは本当は英語が話せませんでした。でもとにかく会話をして、東京から京都に行って、帰りは新大阪から東京に帰ってきたいことが分かりました。そして彼らはその値段がいくらなのかを知りたがっていました。

私は、値段をおしえましたが、不満そうに、先ほど自分たちで機械で見たらもっと安かったと言いました。私は自分が出した値段を再度確認しやはり合っていることを伝えましたが、彼らはまだおかしい、なぜだと言っていたので、私は、だったら機械で切符を買えばいいじゃないか、そしてその切符を私に見せてくださいと強く言いました。彼らはショックを受けたようで無言になりその場を離れ、よく見ると機械をしばらくいじっていましたが結局何も買わずに帰って行ったようでした。

私はいじわるでしょうか。

Mean

A couple speaking Chinese came to my next ticket window and asked.

"Do you speak English?"

My co-worker next to my ticket window said pointing at me.

"No, she can speak English. Please wait."

Right after I finished a customer, they came to my ticket window. When we started talking, I realized that they didn't speak English much, actually. Anyway, we kept the conversation and I found out that they wanted to go to Kyoto from Tokyo and come back to Tokyo from Osaka. They wanted to know how much it would cost.

I told them how much it was, but they looked very suspicious and told me that it was cheaper when they calculated it with a ticket vending machine. I checked the price I showed them and made sure and told again it was right. However they still didn't trust me and kept asking why. So, I strongly said, "You can buy the tickets with the ticket vending machine and show me the tickets." They looked shocked and became quiet and then left my ticket window. I noticed they were trying the ticket vending machine over there and seemed to have left after a while without buying anything.

Am I mean?

Funny coincidence. Just this evening I was buying stuff at Maruetsu food store, and the register woman told me it was like 750 yen, which I thought was too high. So I made a stupid face, but she kept telling me everything was right. I thought: "Okay, it's probably me who's wrong, anyway." I paid, took the receipt went away and checked it. And it occurred that she tried charging me 289 yen for a single bulb of garlic, which was, in fact, 98 yen.I went back to the register and told her, but she kept telling that no-no-no, it was right, the price is 298 yen. I had to take her to the shelf and show her the price tag, then she changed it manually to 98 yen -- their system kept showing it was 298 yen when she scanned the bar code, even though it was 98 on the price tag.

Oh, poor you. It was good you could tell them that you were right. I'm proud of you. But in my case, I was right. That's why they didn't buy tickets even at the ticket vending machine.

You can't be sure it was you who's right.
