【看CP學英文】國際新冠肺炎疫情持續升溫,因此民眾還是人人自危的戴上口罩,不過,近日就有網友在搭台鐵時,遇到一名外國女子不僅不戴口罩,還對其他乘客罵髒話,幸好在乘客的幫助下,加上列車長霸氣危機處理,才讓事情順利落幕。

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, wearing a face mask in public is still mandatory in Taiwan. 

There is, therefore, little wonder that a foreigner who refused to wear a face mask on a train has recently drawn much attention on social media.    

原PO在《爆廢公社公開版》表示,他搭台鐵經過中壢時,突然聽到後面的女生大吼大叫,甚至用英文罵了髒話,轉頭一看才知道,原來是一名外國女子沒戴口罩,旁邊台灣女生不好意思講,想說請清潔人員協助找列車長過來,結果被會中文的外國女子聽到,瞬間爆氣「強調自己戴口罩會咳嗽,所以才不戴」。  

A social media user who witnessed the argument took to Facebook to share what happened on the train to the ‘Taiwan Karen.’   

In the post, he said that he heard a girl behind him yelling and screaming, and even cursing in English while the train was passing through Zhongli.   

He saw a foreign woman, with her face uncovered, screaming at the passenger who reported her breaching Covid-19 rules to the staff.  

“I would cough if I wear a mask, and that’s why I don’t wear one,” the woman shouted after hearing someone reporting her to the conductor.

原PO聽完也跟著勸外國女子,卻被對方比不雅手勢,之後還不斷咆哮,就算現場其他乘客請她冷靜也沒用,直到列車長現身,並和外國女子講好,讓刷悠遊卡、沒買座位的她坐哺乳室一路到台中,結果她突然又反悔,以「因為是密閉空間」拒絕,最後只願意到另一個車廂站著。  

Meanwhile, the social media user who witnessed the argument advised the woman to wear a mask, but she growled at him and responded with a rude gesture.   

The train conductor then arrived discussed with the foreign woman to calm her down. The conductor then allowed her to take the breastfeeding room to Taichung with her ticket paid with EasyCard.  

Later, she changed her mind and refused the suggestion by saying, “because it’s a confined space.” She ended up standing in another car.  

原PO指出,後來警方向他詢問狀況,沒想到外國女子看到時,又開始咆哮,列車長聽到也立即危機處理,直接通報「這裡是列車XXX號。 我現在快到竹南,請求支援,我這邊拒載」,最後外國女子疑似看到竹南站很多警察,發現狀況不對,自己下車。  

The train conductor then reported her to the police, saying that they refused to carry the woman. The foreign woman finally got off the train by herself after seeing many police officers waiting for her at Zhunan Station.

經過這次事件的原PO認為,大家都處理的非常好,車上也有很多會英文的幫忙溝通。  

The social media user ended by saying that all involved in the incident handled it very well, and many English-speaking people on the train tried to help her, but to no avail.  

許多網友也紛紛回應,「遵守規則不就沒事了,不知道疫情很嚴重嗎」、「太誇張了!不能好好戴口罩嗎」、「列車長直接拒載,也太帥了」、「這個外國人居然認為咳嗽要拿下口罩」、「防疫工作本來就是應該從自身做起,原PO很棒」、「列車長處理方式,太霸氣」。  

In response to the post, many heaped praised on the conductor’s problem-solving abilities.
