I was driving down the road when I saw a group of teenagers holding up signs for a fundraising car wash for their school. My car was very dirty, so I pulled over and paid for a car wash and a wax.
我开车沿着路前行,这时我看到一群学生举着洗车为学校募集钱的牌子。我的车很脏,于是我停下车,付了洗车和打蜡的费用。
I think that the students had more enthusiasm than car washing skills. Yes, they had hoses, buckets filled with soapy water, and sponges, but they seemed more interested in getting each other wet than in getting the dirt off the car. I kept wanting to jump up and say, Hey, you missed a spot! but I didn’t.
我觉得学生拥有更多的热情而不是洗车技巧。是的,他们有水管,还有装满肥皂水的桶和海绵,但是他们看上去对让彼此浑身都沾上水更感兴趣,而不是擦掉车上的污垢。我想蹦起来喊道:嘿,有污点没有擦掉!但是我没有那样做。
After washing the car, they rinsed it and dried it with towels. They also vacuumed the interior and washed the windows. At least the windows were spotless. Finally, they waxed and polished the car, and were finished.
洗完车后,他们冲洗车并用毛巾擦干。他们还用吸尘器打扫车的内部,并擦洗车窗。至少玻璃没有污点。最后,他们给车打上蜡并擦亮,洗车完成了。

I went over to inspect the washed car. All I can say is I’m glad this was a fundraiser to support their school. If these students do as well in their classes as they did on my car, they need all the education they can get!
我走过去检查洗过的车。我只能说能出钱资助他们的学校我很高兴。如果这些学生学习成绩和洗车一个水平,那他们需要全面的教育。
