Lesson 01 Bob's Day at Work

鮑勃的工作日

Bob works as a manager in a furniture store. Peter, his boss, is not happy about sales. Bob's new advertising campaign hasn't helped. Peter decided to fire him.

鮑勃在一家家具店當經理。他的老板皮特對銷售業績不滿意。鮑勃的新廣告活動也沒讓銷售業績有何起色。皮特決定解雇他。

Peter:Bob, I have to break the news , but our sales were down again last month.

鮑勃,我不得不宣布這個壞消息,上個月我們的銷售額又下降了

Bob:Down again, Peter?

又下降了嗎,皮特?

Peter:Yeah. These days, everybody's shopping at our competition, Honest Abe's Furniture Store.

對啊,這些天大家都在我們的競爭對手“誠實的亞伯家具店”那兒買家私。

Bob:But everything in there costs an arm and a leg!

但他們家的東西都非常貴啊。

Peter:That's true. They do charge top dollar.

沒錯,他們的售價確實很高。

Bob:And their salespeople are very strange. They really give me the creeps!

而且他們的銷售員也非常奇怪。他們讓我毛骨悚然。

Peter:Well, they must be doing something right over there. Meanwhile, we're about to go belly-up.

哎呀,人家的策略是對的啦。而我們呢,就快要破產了。

Bob:I'm sorry to hear that. I thought my new advertising campaign would save the day.

聽到這個消息我真難過。我以為我的新廣告可以讓我們挽救局面的。

Peter: Let's face it: your advertising campaign was a real flop.

你的廣告實在很失敗,面對這個現實吧。

Bob:Well then I'll go back to the drawing board.

那我重新做個計劃。

Peter:It's too late for that. You're fired!

太遲了,你被解雇了。

Bob:What? You're giving me the ax?

什么?你要解雇我?

Peter:Yes. I've already found a new manager. She's as sharp as a tack.

對。我已經物色了一個新經理。她非常厲害。

Bob:Can't we even talk this over? After all, I've been working here for 10 years!

我們不能再談談?不管怎樣,我在這里工作了10年了。

Peter:There's no point in arguing, Bob. I've already made up my mind.

鮑勃,再爭辯下去也沒有意義了,我已經決定了。

Bob:Oh well, at least I won't have to put up with your non-sense anymore! Good-bye to you and good-bye to this dead-end job.

那好吧,至少我不必再忍受你的無知了。拜拜了,你嘞;拜拜了,這沒有前途的工作!

Peter:Please leave before I lose my temper!

在我發火前,你趕緊走!
