mr.johnson is 65 and now. because he is a very good doctor, a lot of people still come to ask him to look them over. he's very busy in the and wanted to have a good rest at night.
several weeks ago, a young man moved in the room . every night, the young man uptairs came back late. he always took off his shoes and threw them on the floor. at this time, the doctor was to sleep. but every night he heard the noise . bang! one shoe. bang! the other shoe. it was too bad. the doctor found it was very difficult to get to sleep and he was rather angry with the man .
one day, the doctor downstairs went to talk to the young man. he went and knocked at the door. the young man opened it. with a smile the doctor said:" i'm sorry to trouble you, sir."
"what is it?"
"well, every time you get back at night, you drop your shoes on the floor. it happens every night. the noise wakes me up! would you please not do that?"
" i'm very sorry, sir," said the young man." i won't do it again."
the next evening, the young man came back home from work late as usual. he was feeling very tired. he took off his first shoe and threw it on the floor. then he remembered the doctor downstairs. so he took off the second shoe and put it on the floor very quietly. he had his supper, listened to the redio, read a newspaper and then went to bed. he was just falling asleep when there was a loud knock at the door. he opened it and saw the doctor from downstairs.
"please!" said the doctor from downstairs." please drop the other shoe! i was waiting for the sound of the other shoes! i can't get to sleep!"
