Same Reason

A merchant tried for many months to collect an overdue bill, but with no success.

Finally, he wrote and sent a tear-jerking letter accompanied by a picture of his little daughter.

Under it, he wrote, “The reason I need the money.”

A few days later, by return mail came a photo of a family with six children. It was captioned, “The reason I can’t have paid.”

 

동일한 이유

 

한 상인이 수개월 동안 외상값을 받으려고 했지만 소용이 없었다.

마침내 그는 눈물이 나는 편지를 써서 보내며 자신의 어린 딸 사진을 동봉했다. 그 밑에 쓰기를, “내가 돈이 필요한 이유”

며칠이 지나 회신으로 편지가 왔는데 6명의 자녀가 있는 가족사진이 왔다. 사진에는 “내가 갚지 못해 온 이유”라는 설명이 붙어있었다.

 

 overdue bill: 밀린 청구서

 with no success: 소용이 없다. 성과가 없다.

 tear-jerking: 눈물이 나는, 심금을 울리는

 by return: 회신으로

 caption: 자막을 붙이다
