وزه، سپی او غوا ډېر ښه ملکري وه. یوه ورځ هغوی په یوه ټکسي کې په سفر ولاړل.

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

کله چې د هغوی سفر پای ته ورسید، د ټیکسی ډریور له هغو څخه کرایه وغوښته. غوا خپله کرایه ورکړه.

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

سپی لږه اضافه کرایه ورکړه ځکه چې هغه سره برابري پیسې نه وې.

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

ډریور غوښتل چې سپي ته باقی پيسې ورکړي خو په دې وخت وزې پرته له کرایه ورکولو منډه کړله.

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

ډریور ډېر خفه شو. هغه سپی ته پرته له باقي پیسې ورکولو بېرته ولاړو.

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

نو ځکه، حتی نن هم، سپی د موټر په لور منډه کوي چې دننه وګوري او هغه ډریور وموندي چې باید هغه ته باقي پیسې ورکړي.

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

وزه د موټر غږ څخه لرې مڼده وهي. هغه د دې وېره لري چې هه به د کرایې نه ورکولو لپاره ونیول شي.

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

او غوا کله چېی یو موټر راځي نو هیڅ ستونزه نه لري. غوا د سړک څخه تېریدلو کې هیڅ بېړه نه کوي ځکه چې هغه پوهېږي چې هغې خپله پوره کرایه ورکړي وه.

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.
