The Immigrant and the Car Salesman
There was once a boy named Petros who immigrated
to the United States from Greece. His family was
very poor, so they came on a ship, and took a train
to Chicago, where they thought they could find work.
When Petros turned eighteen, he decided to move to
Lynn, MA, where he settled in the Greek community.
He began to work hard and saved all of the money he
showed first 75 words of 403 total
showed last 75 words of 403 total
and, recognizing Petros,
greeted him warmly. He asked him what he wanted to
buy. Petros told him that he wanted the new Cadillac
in the showroom, but that the salesman had tried to
show him a different one because he didn't think he
could afford the new one. The owner angrily fired
the salesman, and Petros drove away in his new car.
So we see that "Las apariencias engañan." In English,
appearances are deceiving.
