How Do You Know Your Computer Is Male?

My new data-entry assistant could often be heard offering encouragement to her computer. “You can do it, big guy!” She would say. “Good boy! Nice job, fellow.”

After her one particularly lengthy pep talk. I asked, “How do you know your computer’s male?”She said, “Because you have to tell it what to do.”

你怎么知道你的计算机是男性?

我常听到新来的负责资料录入的助手鼓励她的计算机,“你会做这件事,大小伙子!”她说,“好样的,干得不错,好家伙。”

有一次在她热心肠地与计算机聊完之后,我问,“你怎么知道你的计算机是男性?”她说:“因为你必须告诉它做什么。”
