پاسخ نمونه بخش ۲

It’s rare for me to feel bored when I’m around other people, but there’s one experience that sticks out in my mind.
I was taking an international bus between London and Prague. It was due to be a 19 hour trip in total, one of the longest I’ve ever taken. I’d usually fly, but my luggage was too heavy to fly with and the bus was the only option.
I imagined that if the journey was so long, not many people would want to buy a ticket, but I was wrong. The bus was packed and every seat was taken.
Most of the time when I want to keep myself occupied I’ll wear headphones, especially if I don’t want to talk to my seatmate. Most people understand it as a clear signal and don’t disturb me, but this elderly gentleman completely disregarded it and struck up a conversation with me. I wasn’t too thrilled at the prospect of talking to anyone, but I humored him for a while out of politeness.
He droned on about his personal pet peeves, the conspiracy theories he believed in, and the medical discoveries he claimed to have made. I felt bored to death but he kept on goingno matter what. I looked at the clock and I calculated that there was going to be another 12 hours of sitting next to him.
I started to think of strategies to get away from this man. Everything I’d tried so far had failed. The bus finally made its first stop. Passengers disembarked and some more arrived. I had a quick look around the bus and spotted a handful of seats that appeared to be free. I double checked and asked the bus attendant if any of those seats were going to be free for the remainder of the journey. She nodded and said they were all going to be free.
I felt a breathed a sigh of relief knowing that I didn’t have listen to him. I put my headphones in, gazed out of the window, and fell asleep for the remainder of the journey.
I vowed on that day never to take such a long bus ride ever again.

پاسخ نمونه بخش ۳

Why do people get bored?

چرا مردم حوصله شان سر می رود؟

I think it’s because they’re not intellectually stimulated or they’re forced to do something they’re uninterested in.
Most people get bored when they have to do something repetitive, for example, running on a treadmill, but oftentimes people find themselves bored beyond belief at work. Sometimes this is because they’ve been doing the same task over and over, and every day looks the same. This is possibly why some jobs have a really high turnover of staff.
I think some people are able to stave off boredom by listening to music or an audiobook while they do something boring. These things can take their mind off the boring activity and make it more palatable.
Personally I get extremely bored any time I have to do the same thing over and over again with no end in sight. In spite of this, I’m usually able to keep going, but there have been moments when I’ve needed a complete change of pace because it’s become intolerable.

Example: The hotel has a high turnover of staff.

Stave off (phrasal verb – جلوی چیزی را گرفتن)If you stave off something, you stop it from happening particularly if it’s a bad situation. It’s usually only temporary.

Example: We’re hoping to stave off all these difficult decisions until November.

Take your mind off something (idiom – به چیزی فکر نکردن)If you take your mind off something, you stop thinking about something, typically something that’s been worrying you.

Example: Playing video games after work helps me take my mind off it for a while.

Palatable (adjective -خوش طعم)Something that’s palatable is acceptable.

No end in sight (idiom – پایانی در دیدرس نیست)If there’s no end in sight, there’s no foreseeable end or conclusion to something. The phrase indicates that someone expects something to continue for a very long time.

Change of pace (idiom – تغییر در فعالیت روزمره)A change of pace is a variation in a routine or activity.

Example: After working in sales for so long, I needed a change of pace so I requested a transfer to the customer service department.

Why are some people less interested in reading books nowadays?

چرا برخی افراد امروزه علاقه کمتری به خواندن کتاب دارند؟

I think people typically have a shorter attention spans nowadays and don’t want to sit quietly reading page after page when they could watch a movie or do something more stimulating instead.
I think in the past, people had fewer options for entertainment. Books were one of the best choices and so there was more of a reading culture in society. This started to diminish as TVs began to appear in people’s homes. Instead of reading a book, families would gather around the TV and eat dinner together.
Reading is also seen by some as an asocial activity. People want to connect with others, and it’s not as easy to do that if your nose is in a book.

لغات و اصطلاحات پاسخ نمونه

Asocial (asocial – غیراجتماعی)Someone that’s not interested in being social.

Example: Bears are asocial, secretive animals.

Why do some people choose boring jobs?

چرا برخی افراد شغل های خسته کننده انتخاب می کنند؟

I’d imagine there are three main reasons. Firstly, there might be a scarcity of jobs in the region where someone lives. They simply may have no other choice but to accept a monotonous job in order to survive.
Secondly, they may not have the skills necessary to qualify for a better, more interesting job. These jobs are sometimes chosen by students who are working towards an advanced degree that will allow them to find a better job.
Thirdly, there are some horrendously boring jobs that are very well paid. Some people find this tradeoff to be worth it and may stick at such a job for a long period of time because they like being paid well.

Example: My job is really monotonous and I want to get a new, more interesting one.

Horrendous (adjective – وحشتناک)Something that’s horrendous is really extremely bad or unpleasant.

Tradeoff (noun – موقعیتی که بدست آوردن چیزی ملزم به از دست دادن چیز دیگری است)A tradeoff is a situation in which the achievement of one thing involves the loss of something else which is also desirable, but less so.

Example: They both had successful careers, but the tradeoff was that they rarely saw each other.

Are all the boring jobs going to be done by robots in the future?

آیا همه ی شغل های خسته کننده در آینده توسط ربات ها انجام می شوند؟

Maybe! We’re already seeing a lot of automation that’s replacing low-skilled work. For example, many fast food restaurants have replaced order-taking employees with automated kiosks. I’m sure these restaurants are saving quite a bit of money by not having to pay as many employees.
I think automation is a good thing, and those low-skilled workers could be retrained to do something else that may contribute more value to society. However, there are a lot of people that fear such automation and worry that there will be a period of significant unemployment that may harm the economy.
I think only time will tell whether this is true.

Kiosks (noun – کیوسک)A small machine in a public place that you can use to get information or buy something.

Example: McDonalds has replaced many of its workers with self-serve kiosks.
