    Lesson 01 Bob's Day at Work


    Bob works as a manager in a furniture store. Peter, his boss, is not happy about sales. Bob's new advertising campaign hasn't helped. Peter decided to fire him.


    Peter:Bob, I have to break the news , but our sales were down again last month.


    Bob:Down again, Peter?


    Peter:Yeah. These days, everybody's shopping at our competition, Honest Abe's Furniture Store.


    Bob:But everything in there costs an arm and a leg!


    Peter:That's true. They do charge top dollar.


    Bob:And their salespeople are very strange. They really give me the creeps!


    Peter:Well, they must be doing something right over there. Meanwhile, we're about to go belly-up.


    Bob:I'm sorry to hear that. I thought my new advertising campaign would save the day.


    Peter: Let's face it: your advertising campaign was a real flop.


    Bob:Well then I'll go back to the drawing board.


    Peter:It's too late for that. You're fired!


    Bob:What? You're giving me the ax?


    Peter:Yes. I've already found a new manager. She's as sharp as a tack.


    Bob:Can't we even talk this over? After all, I've been working here for 10 years!


    Peter:There's no point in arguing, Bob. I've already made up my mind.


    Bob:Oh well, at least I won't have to put up with your non-sense anymore! Good-bye to you and good-bye to this dead-end job.


    Peter:Please leave before I lose my temper!
