Just Three Sir

對於亞巡職業球手來說,要透過參加次一級賽事賴以維生本非易事,有時更要長途跋涉到位置偏遠的球場作賽,令生活難上加難。

曾經有場比賽在越南胡志明市外圍的球場舉行,今次故事的主人翁剛在上周一場泰國的賽事被淘汰,懷著悲傷回到酒店後直奔酒吧,7 杯啤酒下肚後,他決定早一點飛到下個比賽場地,好能比其他人更早準備賽事。

 

在滿懷希望的心情下,他立即打開手提電腦,簡直不能相信自己如此走運——竟然讓他買到超平宜的單程機票——二話不說就訂好機位,準備起程!

 

第二天早上他就登上往越南的航班,不夠幾個小時就首次踏足這個陌生國度,拿到所有行李後就叫了一部的士,告訴司機酒店地址後,對方回應很清楚在那裡,立即開車出發。

 

大概過了一個小時後,我們的主角很禮貌地詢問司機:究竟酒店離機場有多遠?司機簡短回話:「Just three sir。」

 

這樣又過了兩個小時,卻依然未見酒店踪影,主角再問一次,司機回覆依舊:「three sir」。

 

主角終於忍不住怒吼:「我們已走了三個小時,怎麼還未到的!」

 

司機唯有轉過頭來,面帶羞澀笑容並說:「Sir,你的酒店在胡志明市,我們在河內機場出發,至少要走 3 日,並非 3 小時啊。」

 

信不信由你,主人翁最後真的坐的士由北面河內到達南部的胡志明市。如果你有比這個故事更引人入勝的旅遊經歷,我洗耳恭聽。
