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
decides to fire him.
Peter: Bob, I hate 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 nonsense anymore!
Good-bye to you and good-bye to this dead-end job.
Peter: Please leave before I lose my temper!
