A Curse ~ 游戏主人·《笑林广记选·骂》 with English Translations




A Curse

After having spent a lot of money on a doctor’s treatment, a patient still couldn’t get up. Filled with loathing and spite, he sent a servant to curse the doctor. After a while, the servant came back. “Have you cursed him?” asked the host. The servant answered, “Not yet.” When asked why not, the servant replied, “There is a huge crowd of people who wanted to curse and beat him. How could I squeeze in?”
