Holding a round broad, Wen and other 5 boys are hurrying for leading a car to their restaurants.

 Wen is the first one guiding  the guest to the restaurant where he is working at.

Leading to guest to the parking place, Wen finally got guests for the restaurant.

Spinning the "Parking" broad, Wen shows his happiness on his face.

  红网长沙8月29日讯(记者 谢伦丁)任何一辆速度稍微有所放慢的小车路过,手举“泊车”圆牌的小文和他的五、六个同行会一窝蜂拥上去,凑在尚未停稳的车边。不管使用什么方法,将车“抢”到所属饭馆门前的地盘,并将车上的客人引进店堂,就算完成任务了。

  Rednet (August 29, reporter Xie Lending): Any car slowed down its speed slightly, five or six boys thronged to the car quickly with a board marked "parking" in their hands. Whatever means they use, their tusk is to lead the car to the parking place of the restaurant where they work at respectively.

     长沙市湘江中路杜甫江阁对面的路口,沿街一溜排开的全是活鱼馆,每到吃饭时间,“抢客”就成了这些饭馆门前独特的风景。常来这里的食客,也把这个过程当成是一道颇有兴致的开胃菜。

      These are the restaurants by the mid-Xiangjiang Road nearby Dupu Building. When the meal time comes, "grabbing-guests" is a special scence of the restaurants where serving for fresh-fish cuisine by Xiangjiang River. Guests of these restaurants also treat the "grabbing" as the appetizer before they have their dinner.
  
  “抢”到客人的诀窍是跑得快

The tip of "grabbing-guests" is to run fast for
  
  在路边“抢客”的小伙子,是饭馆的保安兼迎宾员。几年前跟着家人从衡山迁到长沙的小文,今年刚满20岁,高中毕业后跟着父亲给饭馆送过煤,现在是这一带近三十名迎宾员中“抢客”最厉害的一个。

    The "grabbing-guests" kid is the gate boy of a restaurant named Wen. A few years ago, Wen moved from Hengshan to Changsha with his family, and he started working at age of 20 by transporting coals to serval restaurants after high school graduation. Wen now is the most capable "grabbing-guests" kid. 

  上午十一点到下午两点,傍晚四点半到晚上八点半,这是白班的工作时间,工作场地是饭馆门前的人行道。不像别的小伙子那样搬个凳子坐在路边,大多数时间小文站着,或者四处走动,跟邻店的小伙子开开玩笑,要槟榔吃。一见有客人来,他会第一个冲过去,把头湊在窗边,脚下跟着还在移动的车走。客人从车内摇下窗玻璃跟他说话时,那些“同行”可能才赶到。

  Meal time from 11 am to 2pm and 4pm to 8 pm are the work time, and the paveway in front of the restaurant is the working place for Wen. Unlike other boys, Wen is always standing or walking around for joking and asking snack from others. As soon as he saw a car drawing near, he dashed to the car by the window and talked to the motorist by running. At this moment, boyz of other restaurants just began to run towords the car.
  
  “要说饭馆怎么怎么好,要告诉客人现在还有很多空位,不需要等待,”要“抢”到客人,小文的决窃一是跑得快,一是能说,“其实这里的饭馆在价格呵、菜的特色上面都差不多,有的客人听到哪位迎宾员的话多一点,可能就跟他走了。”

" You must say the good things about your restaurant, and having vacanct tables," said Wen. His tip is to run fast and to be talktive. "Actually, the cuisines and the prices are almost the same. Guests may follow the guy giving more introduction," Wen laughed.
