職人英語通〉異想天開 Ask for the moon!

然而,事情哪有怎麼簡單?不管你怎麼想,怎麼盼,月亮總是高高掛在天上。所以如果要形容某人根本就是「異想天開」或者是「癡人說夢」,就可以說這人是”ask for the moon!”了。

Manager:Please make yourself useful! You’re all doing nothing but chatting on MSN now.

Manager:拜託你們有用一點!什麼事也不做,只會掛在MSN上聊天。

Employee A:But we’ve done everything we should. This is just a low season and there’s nothing we can do about it.

Employee A:可是我們該做的都已經做了啊。現在正值淡季,我們也沒辦法。

Employee B:True, in fact, I heard some companies even grant their staff paid leave during low seasons.

Employee B:是啊,事實上我還聽說某些公司甚至在淡季時給員工們有薪假呢。

Manager:So you’re telling me we should just sit and wait here for someone to knock on our door with business?

Manager:所以你們是說我們就坐著等生意上門囉?

Employee C:Well, we should always be positive! Things happen when you believe!

Employee C:唉呦,我們應該要正面思考!只要相信,事情就真的會發生!

Manager:Nonsense! I don’t need you to tell me about life. Let me just be straight forward in case you don’t know what’s around the corner. You’re talking about asking for a pay raise this year right?

Manager:鬼扯!我不需要你來教我人生的道理。我就直接說吧,不然你們還不清楚事情大條了。你們不是還希望今年能夠調薪吧?

All employees:Yes, we should get a salary review every year.

All employees:是啊,我們應該每年有一次薪資調整的。

Manager:Without revenue increase and our profit margin shrinking now, you’re asking for the moon! I suggest you start thinking really hard on how we should get more business in!

Manager:業績沒增加,現在利潤又縮水,你們簡直是異想天開!我建議你們開始努力的給我想想如何讓生意變好些!
