A good deed

Бойскаут на полчаса опоздал на собрание.

A boy scout was half an hour late for a meeting.
Его друг спросил: "Почему ты опоздал?"

His friend asked: "Why are you late?"
"Я помог пожилому человеку перейти улицу", - ответил он.

"I was helping an old man cross the street.", he answered.
"Это очень хорошо с твоей стороны", - сказал его друг. "Но из-за этого опоздать на полчаса?"

"This is very good of you", said his friend. "But half an hour late because of that?"
"Видишь ли, проблема заключалась в том, что он не хотел идти", - ответил он.

"See, the problem was he didn't want to go.", he answered.
