The Young Businessman

年輕商人

 

A young businessman had just started his own firm. He’d rented a beautiful office and had it furnished with antiques.

一個年輕商人剛開張他自己的公司。他租了一間漂亮的辦公室,並用一些古董裝飾。

 

Sitting there, he saw a man come into the outer office.

坐在那裡,他看見一個人走進辦公室外間。

 

Wishing to appear busy, the businessman picked up the phone and started to pretend he had a big deal in progress. He threw huge figures around and made giant commitments. Finally, he hung up and asked the visitor, “Can I help you?” The man said, “Sure. I’ve come to install the phone!”

商人希望顯得很忙碌,拿起電話,開始假裝有大筆交易正在進行中。他拋出幾個很大數字,並作一些龐大的承諾。最後,他掛斷電話,問訪客:「有什麼我能幫你忙的嗎?」這個人說:「當然有,我是來安裝電話的!」
