商务礼节美语 第46期:性骚扰(01)

发表时间:2017-11-29内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Jessica看到同事Claire情绪很低落。 Jessica: Hey Claire, you look sad. What's up? Claire: I guess I am a bit depressed. J: Having a bad hair day? C: (Chuckle) No, that' not it. J: Come on. You can confide in me. I know how to keep a secret. C: OK... but you really have to keep this to yourself. I don't want to cause trouble. J: Wow. Sounds serious! C: You know my boss, Kevin? J: Sure...I've met him at a couple of company functions. Jessica开玩笑,问Clare情绪低落是不是having a bad hair day. 说某人have a bad hair day意思是因为不顺,心情不好。 Jessica说自己嘴很严,所以Clair可以confide in me, 把秘密告诉我。Claire告诉Jessica说,事情跟自己的上司Kevin有关。听起来好象挺严重。 C: Well, he keeps commenting on how pretty I am and he frequently touches my shoulders. He says I look tense and could use a massage. J: And this makes you uncomfortable, right? C: Yeah! I don't like it. I have a boyfriend and I'm not interested in Kevin at all. Plus, he's my boss and it's just a weird feeling! J: That sounds like sexual harassment to me! C: Really? Do you think it's that serious? 原来,Claire的上司Kevin经常夸她漂亮,还动手动脚,让Claire很不舒服。Claire有男朋友,而且I'm not interested in Kevin, 对Kevin没兴趣,所以感觉很奇怪。Jessica肯定地说,这是性骚扰sexual harassment. 这么说性质可就严重了。 J: The workplace is supposed to be a comfortable place to work in. You shouldn't have to be looking over your shoulder all day. It's the responsibility of a boss to make sure your workday is safe and productive. C: Well, every time he comes out to speak to me, I worry he's going to do or say something that makes me uncomfortable. J: That's sexual harassment and it's a crime! Jessica说,工作单位应该安全、舒适,员工不需要随时随地提心吊胆。You shouldn't have to be looking over your shoulder all day. Claire承认,每次 Kevin 跟她讲话,她都很紧张,生怕Kevin的举止会让自己感到别扭。不过,她又说…… C: But overall he is a pretty good boss and most of the people in the office like him. I don't want to be the one to stir up trouble. Maybe I'm too sensitive. J: Sexual harassment is a common problem. I remember I once had a boss who kept asking me out on a date...even though I was married and wearing my wedding ring! C: What did you do about it? Claire说,Kevin总的来说是个不错的老板;大家都很喜欢他,所以I don't want to be the one to stir up trouble. 不想当那个挑起是非的人。Jessica说,性骚扰是个很常见的问题,自己就曾遇到过一个老板,明知她已经结婚,还三番五次要跟她约会。Jessica是如何处理的呢?我们下次继续听。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171129/515323.html
