Google has thanked an 86-year-old British grandmother who proved old-fashioned manners have a place in the modern world when she typed "please" and "thank you" in an internet search.

谷歌近日向一位86岁的英国老奶奶表达了感谢,这位老奶奶在网络搜索时不忘写“请”和“谢谢”,证明了老式的礼貌在现代世界中依然有一席之地。

May Ashworth's grandson Ben John found her laptop open and took a photo of the unusually polite online request. She was asking for a translation of the Roman numerals MCMXCVIII.

May Ashworth的孙子Ben John发现他奶奶的开着笔记本并拍下了她奶奶在网络搜索时使用并不常见的礼貌用语的照片。她正在搜索一串阿拉伯数字“MCMXCVIII”的翻译。

John, a 25-year-old from Wigan, has been retweeted more than 11,000 times.

John,一位来自威根的小伙子,他的推文已被转发超过11000多次。

He told the BBC he and his boyfriend do not have a clothes dryer so they go to Ashworth's house for their laundry.

他告诉BBC(英国公共广播机构)说,他本来是和他男朋友一起去他奶奶家拿已经洗好的衣服的,因为他们没有烘干机。

"I asked my nan why she used 'please' and 'thank you' and it seemed she thinks that there is someone - a physical person - at Google's headquarters who looks after the searches."“我问我奶奶为什么要使用‘请’和‘谢谢’,这样就好像她觉得她在使用谷歌搜索的时候,谷歌总部有工作人员在帮助她查找信息一样。”

"She thought that by being polite and using her manners, the search would be quicker," he said.

他说,“她认为使用了礼貌用语,搜索起来就会更快”。
