Bok, Hond en Koei was groot vriende. Eendag het hulle op ‘n reis in ‘n huurmotor gegaan.

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


Toe hulle die einde van die reis bereik, het die bestuurder hulle gevra om hulle reisgeld te betaal. Koei betaal toe haar geld.

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


Hond betaal ‘n bietjie ekstra, omdat hy nie die korrekte kleingeld gehad het nie.

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


Die bestuurder wou net Hond sy kleingeld terug gee, toe Bok weghardloop sonder om enigiets te betaal.

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


Die bestuurder was baie kwaad. Hy het weggery sonder om vir Hond sy kleingeld terug te gee.

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


Dis hoekom, selfs vandag, Hond na ‘n motor hardloop om binne in te loer op soek na die bestuurder wat hom nou nog sy kleingeld skuld.

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


Bok hardloop weg van die geluid van ‘n motor. Sy is bang sy sal in hegtenis geneem word omdat sy nie haar reisgeld betaal het nie.

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


En Koei is nie gepla wanneer ‘n motor aankom nie. Koei neem haar tyd om oor die pad te stap, want sy weet dat sy haar reisgeld ten volle betaal het.

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.
