Once upon a time， a man saw a doorbell hanging from someone’s door and wanted to steal it.英语小短文
But he knew if he were to steal， moment his hand touched it， if he were discovered， not only he couldn’t get the bell， but he himself might also be caught.
He thought this over and said to himself:
“Why will there be trouble when a bell rings? our ears can hear it. If I cover my ears， I won’t be able to hear it. This way I won’t be caught.”
Later， he eventually got an idea. He first covered his own ears， then went on to steal the bell， However， in the end he was still discovered and caught red-handed.
