She was a big, homely, overweight young woman, in her late 20s, maybe. No ring on her finger, so she was probably single. In fact, judging from her unfriendly demeanor, she probably had no boyfriend. And unless she started dieting and exercising regularly, she would probably remain unattached.

Vivian asked her to make sure to remove the plastic tag from each article of clothing that Vivian was buying at Marshall's. The woman looked at Vivian but said nothing. Not "yes, ma'am," not "of course," not "no problem." She yanked each shirt off its hanger, removed each tag, and folded each shirt quickly but carelessly. Even though the building was air-conditioned, her forehead had beads of sweat. Occasionally she wiped the sweat off with the back of her hand.

When she finished removing all the plastic tags and folding shirts into three piles, she rang up the total--$530.78. Vivian presented her VISA card. The clerk completed the transaction and gave Vivian the receipt to sign. Then she started to put all 19 shirts into one big bag. Vivian said no, please put them into three bags because that would be easier to carry back out to the car. The young woman made a sour face, as if she had been asked to lick the floor clean.

She almost threw each pile of shirts into three separate plastic bags. Vivian said thank you and picked up the bags. The young woman said nothing. Wordlessly she wiped the sweat off her forehead, pulled a shirt off the hanger for the next customer, and folded it.

Một nữ nhân viên không vui

Cô ấy là một phụ nữ lớn, giản dị và thừa cân, có lẽ gần 30 tuổi rồi. Không có cái nhẫn nào trên tay, vì vậy cô ấy có lẽ còn độc thân. Thật sự, chỉ việc mang thái độ không thân thiện thôi thì có lẽ cô ấy không có bạn trai. Và trừ phi cô ấy quyết định ăn kiêng và tập thể dục thường xuyên, cô ấy có lẽ vẫn không lôi cuốn.

Vivian yêu cầu cô ấy hãy chắc chắn rằng đã loại bỏ những cái bảng nhựa từ mỗi mẩu vải Vivian đang mua tại Marshall. Người phụ nữ nhìn Vivian nhưng không nói gì. Không nói "Vâng, thưa bà", không nói "dĩ nhiên rồi", không nói "không vấn đề gì". Cô ấy giật mạnh mỗi cái áo ra khỏi móc treo, lấy mỗi cái bảng ra, và gấp áo nhanh lẹ nhưng bất cẩn. Mặc dù tòa nhà được lắp máy điều hòa, trán của cô ta lấm tấm mồ hôi. Đôi khi cô lấy mu bàn tay gạt mồ hôi ra.

Khi cô ta hoàn thành việc lấy tất cả bảng nhựa ra và gấp những cái áo lại thành ba chồng, cô ta đặt bảng giá --
$530. 78. Vivian đưa tấm thẻ VISA. Người nhân viên hoàn tất việc giao dịch và dưa cho Vivian biên lai để kí vào. Rồi cô ta bắt đầu đặt tất cả 19 cái áo vào trong một cái bao to. Vivian nói không, hãy vui lòng đặt chúng vào trong ba cái túi bởi vì điều đó sẽ dễ dàng hơn để mang ra ngoài xe. Người phụ nữ làm bộ dạng gay gắt khi cô ta bị bắt phải lau sàn.

Cô ta gần như là quăng những cái đống áo vào trong ba cái bao nhựa. Vivian nói cám ơn và cầm lấy ba cái túi. Người phụ nữ trẻ nói không có gì. Không nói gì, cô ấy gạt mồ hôi, kéo một cái áo ra khỏi móc treo của khách hàng kế, rồi gấp nó.

*Translate into Vietnamese:
------------------------------------------------------------------

Cô ấy là một phụ nữ cao lớn, thô kệch và béo phì, có lẽ cô ở trong độ tuổi ngoài 20. Không có chiếc nhẫn nào trên ngón tay, vì thế chắc chắn cô còn độc thân. Trên thực tế, căn cứ vào thái độ kém thân thiện của cô, chắc chắn cô không có bạn trai. Và trừ phi cô bắt đầu ăn kiêng và tập thể dục thường xuyên, chắc chắn cô vẫn sẽ không có ai để ý.

Vivian hỏi cô để chắc chắn là nhãn hàng bằng nhựa trên từng món hàng Vivian mua ở Marshall đã tháo ra. Người phụ nữ nhìn Vivian chăm chú nhưng không nói tiếng nào. Không nói "Vâng, thưa bà" không nói "Dĩ nhiên rồi" hoặc "Không có vấn đề gì đâu." Cô ta giật mạnh từng chiếc sơ-mi ra khỏi từng cái mắc áo, tháo rời từng chiếc nhãn hàng, và gấp từng chiếc áo một cách nhanh chóng nhưng thật cẩu thả. Cho dù toà nhà được điều hoà không khí, trên trán cô lấm tấm mồ hôi. Thỉnh thoảng cô lại lấy mu bàn tay lau khô mồ hôi.

Khi làm xong việc tháo rời các nhãn hàng nhựa và gấp mấy chiếc áo sơ-mi thành ba chồng, cô tính tổng số tiền phải trả là 530.78 đô-la. Vivian đưa cho cô thẻ VISA. Nhân viên bán hàng hoàn tất việc giao dịch và đưa Vivian tờ biên nhận để ký tên vào. Sau đó cô ta bắt đầu bỏ tất cả 19 chiếc áo sơ-mi vào một cái túi lớn. Vivian bảo đừng làm thế, hãy bỏ chúng vào ba cái túi, bởi vì như thế sẽ dễ dàng hơn cho việc mang ra xe. Người phụ nữ trẻ tỏ ra cáu kỉnh, như thể cô bị yêu cầu liếm cái sàn nhà cho sạch vậy.

Cô ta gần như ném từng chồng áo sơ-mi vào trong ba cái túi riêng biệt. Vivian nói cám ơn và xách mấy chiếc túi lên. Người phụ nữ trẻ không nói gì. Không một lời, cô lau khô mồ hôi trên trán, kéo một chiếc áo sơ-mi ra khỏi mắc áo cho người khách hàng kế tiếp, và gấp nó lại.
