Lesson 01 Bob's Day at Work

鲍勃的工作日

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.

鲍勃在一家家具店当经理。他的老板皮特对销售业绩不满意。鲍勃的新广告活动也没让销售业绩有何起色。皮特决定解雇他。

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消息,上个月我们的销售额又下降了

Bob:Down again, Peter?

又下降了吗,皮特?

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

对啊,这些天大家都在我们的竞争对手“诚实的亚伯家具店”那儿买家私。

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

但他们家的东西都非常贵啊。

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

没错,他们的售价确实很高。

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

而且他们的销售员也非常奇怪。他们让我毛骨悚然。

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

哎呀,人家的策略是对的啦。而我们呢,就快要破产了。

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

听到这个消息我真难过。我以为我的新广告可以让我们挽救局面的。

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

你的广告实在很失败,面对这个现实吧。

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

那我重新做个计划。

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

太迟了,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.

对。我已经物色了一个新经理。她非常厉害。

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

我们不能再谈谈?不管怎样,我在这里工作了10年了。

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

鲍勃,再争辩下去也没有意义了,我已经决定了。

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无知了。拜拜了,你嘞;拜拜了,这没有前途的工作!

Peter:Please leave before I lose my temper!

在我发火前,你赶紧走!
