The secretary told me that Mr. Harmsworth would see me. I felt very nervous when I went into his office. He did not look up from his desk when I entered. After I had sat down, he said that business was very bad. He told me that the firm could not afford to pay such large salaries. Twenty people had already left. I knew that my turn had come.

‘Mr. Harmsworth, ’I said in a weak voice.

‘Don't interrupt, ’he said.

Then he smiled and told me I would receive an extra thousand pounds a year!

参考译文

秘书告诉我说哈姆斯沃斯先生要见我。我走进他的办公室,感到非常紧张。我进去的时候,他连头也没抬。待我坐下后,他说生意非常不景气。他还告诉我,公司支付不起这么庞大的工资开支,有20个人已经离去。我知道这次该轮到我了。

“哈姆斯沃斯先生,”我无力地说。

“不要打断我的话,”他说。

然后他微笑了一下告诉我说,我每年将得到1, 000英镑的额外收入。
