商务礼节美语第82期:准时

Ann:陈豪在美国公司已经工作了一段时间。今天老板要找他谈话。老板找谈话会有什么事呢?陈豪心里有点不安,所以急着去请教美籍华人Mary。

(Office ambience)

陈:(很着急地)Hey, Mary,快,我有事问你。

M:What's the matter?

陈:老板的秘书通知我老板过一会要找我谈话,可说的话我没听懂,说是为了什么punc...punc... 那个词我不知道...

M:Punctual?

陈:对,有点像,不过那个词最后的音好像是什么ty 来了。

M:Punctuality?

陈:Yes, yes. Punctuality. Punctuality是什么意思呀?哟,不好了,时间到了,我得去了。

(Sound of knocking on the door; opening the door)

Mr. Jones:Mr. Chen, it has been brought to my attention

that you are frequently late for meetings. I want you to know that punctuality is important in American business and in our company too.

C:Sorry, Mr. Jones, I am not sure I understand. What exactly do you mean by punc... punctuality?

Mr. Jones:Punctuality simply means being on time. If a meeting is scheduled for one o'clock, everyone is expected to be in the meeting room and ready to start.
