Q: What’s the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?

问:别人为你做过的最美好的事是什么?

Joey Frey的回复:

I was on a train in Switzerland. The train came to a stop, and the conductor’s voice came over the loudspeaker and delivered a message in German, then Italian, then French. I had made the mistake of not learning any of those languages before my vacation. Everyone started getting off the train, and an old woman saw I was confused and stressed (I had to catch an overnight train to Rome, and I was flying home from there).

那次我在瑞士乘火车。火车停在一个站上,此时车厢广播里传来列车员的声音,先后用德语、意大利语和法语播报了一段通知。我没在来度假前学习这几门语言,实在是个错误。大家开始纷纷走下火车,这时,一位老太太看到了既困惑又焦虑的我(我必须赶一列开往罗马的夜车,再从那儿飞回家)。

It was a 2.5 hour journey in total, and when we finally made it to the destination, we got off and said our goodbyes. I had made it just in time to catch my train to Rome, and she told me she had a train to catch, too. I asked her how much farther she had to go, and it turns out her home was 2 hours back the other way. She had jumped from train to train and traveled the whole way just to make sure I made it. I was in shock but I managed to blurt out, pathetically, “you are the nicest person I’ve ever met”. She
