Lesson 01 Bob's Day at Work

鲍勃的任务日

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.

鲍勃在一家家具店当司理。他的老板皮特对贩卖业绩不称心。鲍勃的新告白运动也没让贩卖业绩有何转机。皮特决议辞退他。

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

鲍勃,我不得不宣布这个坏音讯,上个月我们的贩卖额又降落了

Bob:Down again, Peter?

又降落了吗,皮特?

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

对啊,这些天各人都在我们的竞争敌手“老实的亚伯家具店”那边买家私。

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

但他们家的工具都十分贵啊。

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

没错,他们的售价的确很高。

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

并且他们的贩卖员也十分奇异。他们让我不寒而栗。

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

哎呀,人家的战略是对的啦。而我们呢,就将近停业了。

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

听到这个音讯我真忧伤。我以为我的新告白可以让我们援救场面的。

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

你的告白真实很失败,面临这个理想吧。

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

那我重新做个方案。

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

太迟了,你被辞退了。

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

什么?你要辞退我?

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

对。我曾经物色了一个新司理。她十分凶猛。

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

我们不克不及再谈谈?不论怎样,我在这里任务了10年了。

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

鲍勃,再争辩下去也没故意义了,我曾经决议了。

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,至多我不用再忍耐你的无知了。拜拜了,你嘞;拜拜了,这没有出路的任务!

Peter:Please leave before I lose my temper!

在我生机前,你赶忙走!
