        Lesson 265 - losing a job can be positive (1)

        作者:VOA禮節美語 發布日期:9-24-2013

        Suzanne 約朋友 Mickey 一起吃午飯。

        Suzanne: Mickey! Good to see you! It's been too long!

        Mickey: Hi, Suzanne! you're right, it has been too long.

        S: Did you find something on the menu that interests you? Sorry I'm late for our lunch. Traffic was horrific.

        M: Yeah....I think I'll have the chicken Caesar salad.

        S: That sounds pretty good.... hey, is everything okay? -- You seem kind of down.

        M: I got laid off last Friday.

        S: Oh....I'm so sorry to hear that.

        Suzanne 跟 Mickey 很久沒見面,發現 Mickey 心事重重,情緒不高,seem kind of down. Down 在這里是形容詞,意思是情緒低落。原來,Mickey 上星期五被炒了魷魚,He got laid off. 也可以說,He was let go. 丟了工作,難怪心情沮喪,我們來聽聽這是為什么。

        M: They said it had nothing to do with my performance. They just need to try and save on costs. So they're axing a bunch of jobs.

        S: Ouch! Losing a job is such a nasty experience.

        M: Yep....it sure is. I guess I have been a bit depressed.

        S: I remember when I got fired from my job as a senior manager with a Web design company. I felt awful for weeks. But you know something? Getting fired turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me.

        Mickey 被解雇是因為公司要削減開支,所以 they axed a bunch of jobs. Ax is spelled, a-x, 或者 a-x-e, 做為動詞,是砍的意思。他丟了工作,心情十分抑郁,depressed. Suzanne 安慰他說,自己也曾有過類似經歷,好幾個星期緩不過來,但是最后證明,getting fired turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. 被開除是她這輩子最幸運的事。怎么可能,我們繼續聽。

        M: And why was that?

        S: It gave me a jolt that I really needed. I was just coasting along in my position day in and day out, never really thinking about my life or my career.

        M: So getting fired helped you reflect on these things?

        S: Absolutely! I started asking myself what I really wanted to do.

        M: That makes sense. Our daily routines can turn into habits. I've been working at this company for almost 8 years and I have kind of been running on autopilot.

        Suzanne 說,失業 gave me a jolt. Jolt is spelled j-o-l-t, jolt 在這里是震動的意思。Suzanne 說,有工作的時候,她從來都是 coast along day in and day out. Coast along 做為詞組,意思是不用花一點努力隨波逐流, day in and day out 意思是日復一日,年復一年。過著這樣的生活,怎么還會想著如何進取呢?被解雇后,她才開始思考這些問題,to reflect on things 意思是反思。Mickey 深有同感,說自己在原來的公司已經干了將近八年了,I have been running on autopilot. Autopilot 自動駕駛,工作已經成了一種習慣,順手就干了,就好象是 run on autopilot. 現在沒有工作了,Mickey 下一步有什么打算呢?我們下次繼續聽。

        we should take times to think over our life and career, and ask ourselves what we really wanted to do

        many people worked day in and day out. Never thinking about his or her life.

        It's not good if daily routines turn into habits. At that point, you would never think about your life and career, and your research ability and creative thinking will decrease a lot. I have been working at this position for almost 9 years and I find that I have kind of been running autopilot.
