ፍየል፣ ዉሻና ላም ጥሩ ጓደኛሞች ነበሩ። አንድ ቀን በታክሲ ጉዞ ለማድረግ ተነሱ።

Goat, Dog, and Cow were great friends. One day they went on a journey in a taxi.

ከጉዟቸው መጨረሻ ሲደርሱም ታክሲ ነጂው መሳፈሪያቸውን እንዲከፍሉ ጠየቃቸው። ላም የራሷን ሒሳብ ከፈለች።

When they reached the end of their journey, the driver asked them to pay their fares. Cow paid her fare.

ዉሻ ትንሽ ተጨማሪ ከፈለች፤ ምክንያቱም ትክክለኛው ዓይነት ገንዘብ ስላልነበራት ነው።

Dog paid a bit extra, because he did not have the correct money.

ሹፌሩ ለዉሻው መልስ ሊሰጣት ሲል ፍየል ምንም ሳትከፍል ሮጠች።

The driver was about to give Dog his change when Goat ran away without paying anything.

ሹፌሩ በጣም ስለተናደደ ለዉሻ ምንም መልስ ሳይሰጣት ሄደ።

The driver was very annoyed. He drove away without giving Dog his change.

ለዚያ ነው ዛሬ ድረስ ዉሻ መኪና በመጣ ቁጥር እየሮጠች መልሷን ያልሰጣትን ሹፌር ፍለጋ ወደ መኪናው ውስጥ ለማየት የምትሞክረው።

That is why, even today, Dog runs towards a car to peep inside and find the driver who owes him his change.

ፍየል የመኪና ድምጽ ስትሰማ ትሮጣለች። ምክንያቱም ሂሳብ ስላልከፈለች እንዳትታሰር ስለምትፈራ ነው።

Goat runs away from the sound of a car. She is afraid she will be arrested for not paying her fare.

ላም ግን መኪና ሲመጣ ምንም አትጨናነቅም። መንገድም ስታቋርጥ ተረጋግታ ነው፤ ምክንያቱም ሂሳብ የለባትማ።

And Cow is not bothered when a car is coming. Cow takes her time crossing the road because she knows she paid her fare in full.
