Un café suspendu – Dictée

J’ai perdu mon boulot il y a deux ans. Je suis au RSA et j’ai bien du mal à joindre les deux bouts. Je n’ai pas trop la pêche en ce moment. Pourtant, aujourd’hui, et malgré le froid, on m’a vraiment réchauffé le cœur. Je passais devant le Café du Centre tout à l’heure. J’avais envie de rentrer dans le café, mais comme j’avais pas un rond, je n’osais pas. Toutefois, j’ai regardé le cafetier et il m’a fait un geste. Il me disait de rentrer, ce que j’ai fait sans demander mon reste. Ensuite, je croyais rêver : il m’a fait un café bien serré et me l’a offert. Je lui ai demandé en quel honneur il faisait ça, et il m’a répondu que c’était un café suspendu. Un client précédent en avait commandé trois une heure avant. C’est beau, la solidarité.

A suspended coffee – French dictation

I lost my job two years ago. I get an income support from the government and it’s hard to make ends meet. I’m kind of down these days. However, today, and despite the cold, something warmed my heart up. I was passing by the Center Coffee Shop a little while ago. I wanted to go in, but because I didn’t have a quid, I didn’t dare to go in. Yet, I looked at the coffee shop owner and he made a sign in my direction. He was telling me to come in, which I did right away. Then, I thought I was dreaming: he made a really strong cup of coffee and gave it to me. I asked him why in the world was he doing this, and he answered that it was a coffee sospeso, a suspended coffee. A previous customer had ordered three of them an hour before. Solidarity is nice.
