本週話題焦點:退休與面試新人 (一項新挑戰)






It's six o'clock and everyone is leaving the office. Dan comes out of the boss's office and catches up with Cindy, who is just about to get in the elevator.
已經六點了,大家都要下班了。Dan 從老闆的辦公室出來,剛好趕上正要進電梯的 Cindy。





Dan: Hey! You'll never guess what just happened to me.
Dan:嘿!你絕不會猜到我剛發生了什麼事。

Cindy: Whoa! You startled me! Did you just win the lottery or something?
Cindy:喔!你嚇到我了!你是剛中樂透還是怎樣?

Dan: Not quite. I just got a promotion. As of Monday morning, I'll be the new sales director.
Dan:不完全是。我剛被升職啦!下禮拜一一早,我就是新任的銷售經理!

Cindy: Wow! That's great news. Congratulations!
Cindy:哇!真是個好消息。恭喜你!

Dan: It's just the challenge I've been looking for.
Dan:這剛好是我在尋找的挑戰。

Cindy: Well, I guess all of your problems are solved and the job hunt is off!
Cindy:嗯,我想你所有的問題都解決了,不用找工作了!

Dan: Yeah, this promotion has really killed two birds with one stone. Now, I have a more challenging job and a better salary!
Dan:是阿,這次的升遷真是一石二鳥。現在我有了一個比較有挑戰性的工作,而且薪水也提高了。

Cindy: I'm really happy for you. I'm sure that you'll do a fine job.
Cindy:我真的很替你高興。我相信你會做得很好的。

Dan: Thanks for your encouragement. I can't wait to tell my wife.
Dan:謝謝你的鼓勵。我等不急要跟我太太說了。

Cindy: I hope that I get promoted someday.
Cindy:真希望我哪天也可以升職。

Cindy: Because I'm happy with my job here. I don't find my work boring at all.
Cindy:因為我對我這裡的工作很滿意啊。我一點都不覺得我的工作無聊。

Dan: Keep working hard and maybe one day you'll get promoted to sales manager. I've invited all the sales staff to come out for happy hour to celebrate. Wanna come? It's my treat.
Dan:繼續認真工作,或許有天你會被升到銷售經理的位置喔。我請了所有銷售部門的員工出來慶祝、歡樂一下。你要一起來嗎?我請客喔。

Cindy: Sure, sounds great! Let's go!
Cindy:當然,聽起來很讚!我們走吧!
