The Wrong Number

When I answered the telephone this morning, I knew right away the lady had the wrong number. But it took her a long time to find out. 私は今朝、電話に答えたとき、私は女性が間違った番号を持っていたすぐに知っていた。しかし、それは見つけるために彼女に長い時間がかかった。

She said her name was Mrs. Mills and asked if I was Dr. Cooper’s secretary. I told her that she had an incorrect number, but I don’t think she listened to me. 彼女は、彼女の名前は夫人ミルズだったと私は博士クーパーの秘書だったかどうか尋ね述べた。私は彼女が間違った番号を持っていたことを彼女に言ったが、私は彼女が私に耳を傾けないと思う。

She told me she wanted to cancel her two o’clock appointment because her husband was sick and she had to take care of him. I told her I was very sorry to hear that, but she still had the wrong number. 彼女は彼女の夫が病気だったので、彼女の2時の予定をキャンセルしたかった私に言った、彼女は彼の世話をしなければならなかった。私はそれを聞いて非常に残念だったが、彼女はまだ間違った番号を持っていた彼女に言った。

Then she wanted to know if she could make an appointment for next week. I told her I couldn’t arrange it. I wasn’t Dr. Cooper’s secretary. それから彼女は、彼女は来週の予約を作ることができるかどうかを知りたいと思った。私はそれを手配することができなかった彼女に言った。私は博士クーパーの秘書ではなかった。

Finally she heard what I said. She wanted to know why I didn’t tell her right away that she had the wrong number. Before I could answer her, she hung up. At first I was a little upset about it, but later on in the morning I decided it was really funny. 最後に彼女は私が言ったことを聞いた。彼女は、私は彼女が間違った番号を持っていたことを離れて彼女の右に言わなかった理由を知りたいと思った。私は彼女に答えることができる前に、彼女がハングアップ。最初は、私はそれについて少し不調だったが、その後午前中に私はそれが本当に面白いと判断しました。

I wanted to call up my sister and tell her about it. I guess I dialed the wrong number and I happened to get Mrs. Mills. You can imagine how astonished I was. I tried to explain that I had made a mistake, but she wouldn’t listen. 私は妹を呼び出し、それについて彼女に伝えたかった。私が間違った番号をダイヤルしたと私はミセス·ミルズを得るために起こったと思います。あなたは、私はあったか驚いて想像することができます。私はミスを犯したことを説明しようとしたが、彼女は聞く耳を持たなかった。

She just wanted to know how I got her telephone number. She said she couldn’t understand why I was bothering her. I tried to explain again, but she talked so much and so fast that I couldn’t interrupt her to say that I was sorry. I finally hung up the receiver. 彼女はちょうど、私は彼女の電話番号を得た方法を知りたいと思った。彼女は私が彼女を悩ませていた理由を、彼女は理解できなかったと述べた。私は再び説明しようとしたが、彼女はあまり話をし、私は私が残念だったと言って彼女を中断しないことができるように速い。私は最終的に受話器を切った。
