# A dollar per point 一分一块钱

1.A dollar per point

A professor was giving a big test one day to his students. He handed out all of the tests and went back to his desk to wait.
Once the test was over the students all handed the tests back in. The professor noticed that one of the students had attached a \$100 bill to his test with a note saying “A dollar per point.”
The next class the professor handed the tests back out. This student got back his test and \$64 change.

2. Did You Know Him

At a dinner party in the home of friends, our host mentioned his highschool alma mater（母校，校歌） . One of the guests asked him if he had been a student there at the same time as a particular vice principal.

I sure was! answered the host. He‘s the biggest jerk I‘ve ever met. Did you know him too?

Sort of, replied the guest. My mother married him last Saturday.

3.Lucky Mother

A young mother believed that it was very wrong to waste any food when there were so many hungry people in the world. One evening, she was giving her small daughterher tea before putting her to bed. First she gave her a slice of fresh brown bread and butter, but the child said that she did not want it like that. She asked for some jam on her bread as well.
Her mother looked at her for a few seconds and then said, When I was a small girl like you, Lucy, I was always given either bread and butter, or bread and jam, but never bread with butter and jam.
Lucy looked at her mother for a few moments with pity in her eyes and then said to her kindly, Aren‘t you pleased that you‘ve come to live with us now?

4.How could anyone stoop so low?

Our manager at the restaurant where I worked was a much beloved, jovial man. But there was one subject you didn‘t dare discuss in front of him — his height. Or, should I say, his lack of it. One day, he stormed through the door and announced angrily, “Someone just picked my pocket!” Most of my fellow waitresses and I were speechless, except for the one who blurted out, “How could anyone stoop so low?”

“有人拿了我的钱包！”

“哪有人能弯腰弯那么低的啊”！
