Narrator      
大家好,欢迎回到 Tip Top 贸易公司。现在安娜刚刚从楼上下来,找仓库经理 Ingle 先生谈话。看上去安娜有些紧张……

Anna            
I am. Denise says if I speak to him in the wrong way, he might bite my head off!

Narrator        
别紧张嘛,安娜。 那句话只不过是一个夸张的短语,意思是他可能会是态度强硬,不大好说话。

Anna              
Oh!

Narrator        
放心,你不会有问题的,只要你使用正确的礼貌用语…… 还有,别忘了要微笑呀!

Anna              
OK, I will. Oh look here I am…

Anna            
Mr Ingle, are you there. I’d be most grateful if you could give me some… oh, what’s that smell… and smoke… Mr Ingle!

Mr Ingle         
Oh, oh...

Anna             
Mr Ingle. You’re smoking!

Mr Ingle        
Well… it’s my lunch break… so I’m allowed a cigarette, aren’t I?

Anna              
Really? Are you sure?

Narrator        
安娜,别听他的! 在公共场所吸烟是违法的,而且也是很危险的,你得想个办法制止他。

Anna              
Oh right. Mmm, er, Mr Ingle, you mustn’t smoke… it’s wrong.

Mr Ingle          
Says who?

Anna             
Err, Me?

Narrator        
安娜,你说话要更有力一些,礼貌的同时要果断。你不妨试试这句话:“请问你不介意把烟熄灭吧?” ‘Would you mind not doing that please’?

Anna              
I’ll try. Mr Ingle, would you mind not doing that please?

Mr Ingle        
Why’s that then?

Narrator        
他的态度仍然不好,是吧?你需要把你的理由说明白了。你可以这么说:“我觉得你这样做恐怕违反了公司政策吧。” ‘I’m afraid it’s against company policy.’ 你来试试看。

Anna              
Mr Ingle… I’m afraid it’s against company policy. And… it is actually against the law to smoke here… and… it’s not a nice smell, is it?

Mr Ingle        
It smells OK to me.

Anna              
Well, I’m sorry to have to ask you this but you need to put it out.

Mr Ingle       
Put what out – the cat?!

Anna              
No. You need to extinguish your cigarette… please.

Mr Ingle        
Says who?

Anna            
Well, I’m sure your team wouldn’t like to see you breaking the law and besides, it could cause a fire. That would be awful.

Mr Ingle        
Yeah, I suppose it would.

Anna              
I could get you some nicotine gum if you like?

Mr Ingle        
No, it’s OK. I’ll stub it out… as you asked so nicely.

Anna           
Thank you Mr Ingle. We’ll keep it a secret this time, but please don’t do it again. I’m afraid it’s just not permitted on company premises.

Mr Ingle        
Whatever!

Anna              
Oh and Mr Ingle, I still really like your overalls. Bye!

Narrator        
干得不错,安娜。你对 Ingle 先生吸烟这件事处理得非常好,既冷静又有说服力。希望他别重蹈覆辙。

Anna              
I hope not. I hate the smell of cigarette smoke. But I never got to ask him about stock management.

Narrator        
也许还是留到下次见面再谈工作吧?

到此为止。安娜的这一天很不容易啊!她讲话坚定、有力,终于说服了 Ingle 先生。我们不妨在回顾一下她使用的礼貌短语:

Would you mind not doing that please?
I’m afraid it’s against company policy.
I’m afraid it’s not permitted.
Sorry to have to ask you this but…

Paul              
Ah Anna, there you are… Have you been smoking?

Anna              
No!

Paul              
You smell of cigarette smoke. Look, I know you’re under pressure – but smoking in the building is not permitted.

Anna             
Bbbut…

Paul              
We take this very seriously. You had better step in to my office and we’ll talk about this.

Narrator        
糟糕了!安娜遇到麻烦了。希望她能够澄清自己,消除误会,不过那就意味着她得把 Ingle 先生吸烟这件事告诉老板,那可不是一件容易的事儿。下次看分晓喽! Bye!
