THE MISTRESS AND HER SERVANTS

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
A widow, who was thrifty and industrious, had two servants. She made them work all the time. They could not lie long in bed in the morning because the lady woke them up as soon as the cock crew. They disliked getting up so early, especially in the winter. Then they thought that if the cock didn't crow and wake up their mistress so early, they could sleep longer. So they caught the cock and killed it. But they weren't prepared for consequences. The mistress, who could not hear the cock crow, woke them up earlier and they had to start working at night.

THE MISTRESS AND HER SERVANTS
A Widow, thrifty and industrious, had two servants, whom she kept pretty hard at work. They were not allowed to lie long abed in the mornings, but the old lady had them up and doing as soon as the cock crew. They disliked intensely having to get up at such an hour, especially in winter-time: and they thought that if it were not for the cock waking up their Mistress so horribly early, they could sleep longer. So they caught it and wrung its neck. But they weren't prepared for the consequences. For what happened was that their Mistress, not hearing the cock crow as usual, waked them up earlier than ever, and set them to work in the middle of the night.
