It was a Friday morning, 7:30a.m. I felt too lazy to drive my car, so my son booked an uber. In five minutes, the uber reached at the entrance gate, waiting for my arrival. I just saw the cab number and entered inside the car. I was so busy that I didn't pay any attention towards the driver. I was searching for an important paper from my leather bag, so instantly said, 'Please, go quick! I'm in a hurry!'

那是一個周五的早晨7點半,我懶得開車,兒子幫我在優步上訂了一輛車。短短5分鐘,車就到了門口,等著我上車。我掃了一眼車牌,然后就上車了。我忙著做自己的事情,也顧不上抬頭看一眼司機。我翻著做自己的皮包找文件,隨便說道:“請快一點,我趕時間?!?span style="white-space:normal;">

The voice came, 'Yes, Ma'am!'

只聽聲音傳來:“好的,女士?!?span style="white-space:normal;">

I was literally surprised when I heard a female voice! I stopped my work for a second and looked at the driver. The driver was a young lady. Maybe, around thirty or thirty-two! For the first time, I saw a lady, driving an uber!

讓我感到驚訝的是,我聽到一個女性的聲音,我放下手頭的工作,看了一眼司機,只見是一個年輕的女性,大概在30或32歲左右,這是我第一次看到一個女司機開優步。

The car was running on the national high-way towards the destination. It was quite a distance from my home. She was driving perfectly well. Hundred times, I had travelled in uber, but never I saw any lady, driving an uber! I didn't know, why I became so enthusiastic to know why she had chosen this profession. I started the conversation,'If you don't mind, can I ask you some questions?'

汽車在高速路上朝著目的地行進,目的地離我家很遠,她開車的技術很好。我在優步上坐車數不清有多少次了,我還是第一次看見一個女司機!我自己也不知道為什么莫名興奮,想要了解她為什么會選擇這樣一個職業。于是我開啟了談話:“如果你不介意,我能問你幾個問題么?”

'Yes, ma'am! No problem.'

“當然不介意,女士?!?span style="white-space:normal;">

'I guess, you are well qualified!'

“我猜你肯定受過高等教育,”

'Yes, ma'am! I have completed my education. I have done my MBA course.

“是的女士,我完成了我的學業,工商管理學碩士的課程?!?span style="white-space:normal;">

'Oh, wow!!! Why did you then choose this profession, instead of going for an academic career?'

“天哪,那你為什么選這行,而不是開啟學術生涯?”

I could see her face in the rear view mirror. She smiled and the way she expressed her views, I was really amazed!

我從反光鏡里能看到她的臉,她都是面帶微笑表達她的想法,我被震撼到了。

Very politely, she said, 'Driving was my passion from my childhood, ma'am! Of course I do respect each and every job. In this case, at least I fulfilled my desire! I love driving! I don't mind for big or small job. I wanted a job where I can get satisfaction. I got offers from m.n.c but this one I preferred because I like it! I know, I can't get enough money out of it, yet as I told you 'I love driving'!That's it!'

她很有禮貌的回答道:“從我的孩提時期,我就對開車有著熱情,當然我尊重每一份工作,目前能夠開車,也算是達成我的愿望。我不在乎工作的大小,而在乎自己內心是否得到滿足,我拿到來自mnc公司的職位邀約,但是我還是喜歡我目前的工作,因為我真心熱愛。雖然收入不會很高,但是我喜歡開車,這就夠了?!?span style="white-space:normal;">
