Welcome back to English at Work. Anna is acting up as boss because Paul had an accident with a biscuit!But her and Tom are in a panic after finding a note in Paul’s diary that said ‘Socrates, IPC, final’.Could it mean bad news for Tip Top Trading? Let’s find out.
欢迎回到职场英语。上期说到Paul发生饼干事故,让Anna做了代理老板。她和Tom发现Paul的日记中有张便签,写着‘Socrates, IPC, final’。这下两个人发慌了。难道是对顶级贸易公司不好的消息?一起寻找答案吧。
It’s very odd and it can’t be good. But Socrates must mean Mr Socrates.
太奇怪了,这绝对不是好事情。但Socrates肯定指的是Socrates先生。
Yes – but IPC? What’s that mean?
恩,没错,可IPC是什么意思呢?
Yeah and final sounds very… final. Hmm… I’ve got it! IPC – it must be code for imminent post closures – they’re going to sack us all!
是啊,什么意思呢?而且final听起来有种不可更改的语气。啊,我知道了。这肯定是即将生效的密码,他要把我们全部解雇!
Sshh. Keep your voice down. Don’t tell everyone. Let’s check things out first, don’t say anything yet. OK?
嘘。小点声。别告诉别人。咱们还是先把事情查清楚,千万别透露出去啊。
OK. Mum’s the word.
恩,我明白。保密哦~
Your mum knows?!
你妈妈知道?!
No, no, no, it’s our little secret. See you later.
不是,Mum’s the word,是秘密的意思。回头见,拜拜。
Everything OK Tom?
Tom,一切还顺利吧?
Oh yeah, everything’s cool. Actually Denise, it’s not.I think we’re all going to be sacked tomorrow by Mr Socrates.
哦,是的,都很好。可Denise,其实并不顺利。我想明天我们就要被Socrates先生解雇了。
What?! No! I’ve got a hairdresser’s appointment on Saturday, how am I going to pay for it now?What am I going to do? I know, I’ll call Marge.
什么?不要吧!我周六晚上还要去理发呢,要是真被开除了,可哪有钱付账啊?我该怎么办?啊,知道了,我给Marge打电话。
(Calling across office) Hey Brian, Pete… we’re all going to be sacked tomorrow.
(在办公室里大喊)嘿,Brian,Pete,明天我们就要被解雇了。
Erm… Anna, you’ve got a problem brewing.
呃,Anna,这下你有麻烦了。
What?
什么意思?
Tom’s spreading rumours about job cuts. Everyone’s starting to panic.
Tom正在传播裁员的谣言呢。大家都开始慌了。
Oh no! I’d better do something but what shall I say?
不是吧!不行,我得做点什么,可我要怎么说呢?
Call a meeting quickly. Tell the team ‘there are some rumours going around that are not true’.Say, ‘I am trying to establish the facts and I will let you know as soon as I have some information’.You could say ‘I would be grateful if you hear any rumours, not to pass them on’.This can be a tricky situation and you need to handle it well. Good luck!
召开紧急会议。告诉大家‘现在流传的谣言并不是真的’。‘我正在调查事实,一旦有消息,会尽早告知大家’。‘请大家不要续传谣言,非常感谢’。Anna,这个问题很棘手,但你得好好处理。祝你好运!

恩,真的?啊,我是说,不要这样!IPC不是裁员,而是明天的国际塑料会议。Socrates先生将前去参加。哦,天哪,我把这事给忘了。
I see. And why did you right final?
