Working in a print shop, my co-worker and I sometimes forget how complex the equipment seems to clients.
因为在印刷店工作,我的同事与我有时忘了这些设备对顾客是有多么复杂。

She explained to one woman how to use a copier that could enlarge, reduce, change paper size and adjust the lightness or darkness of copies.
她对一位女士解释著如何使用一部能够放大、缩小、改变纸张大小、调整复印浓淡度的影印机。

“It’s really so simple,” my colleague concluded. “All you have to do is tell it what you want, and it does it.”
“这真的很简单!”我的同事结论说。“所有你必须做的,就是告诉它你想要什么,然后它就会做了。”

The client’s anxiety vanished. Leaning close to the machine, she commanded, “Copy both sides, please!
顾客的焦虑消失了。她倚靠着机器下指令:“请复印双面!”
