When I started my current job, I was assigned to a cubicle1 with a five-foot-high partition. Promoted in three monks2, I asked for a private office in line with my new title. My boss reluctantly told me that there were three possibilities. The first was a room that housed file cabinets and printers. Another was an office that was empty except when one of the company's founders3 visited. The third was a conference room.
After we had discussed each of the alternatives, he told me to make a choice. Deciding to play it safe, I replied, "I want the one that will make the least amount of trouble and affect the fewest people." A smile shot across his face, and he leaned backward in his chair. "That's the office you have now." He said.
我刚开始做我现在这份工作时,被安排在一个有着5英尺高隔板地隔间里。 3个月之后。 我得到了晋升。 于是我提出了一个请求,想要拥有一个和我的新职位相符的私人办公室。 老板不情愿地告诉我,我有3个选择:第一个是放文件柜和打印机的房间,第二个是一间空办公室,可是有的时候,公司的一个创办人会过来看看,最后一个便是会议室。
在我们商讨了每一种选择方案后。 他让我做出选择。 为了使做出的选择更为保险,我回答:“我想要一个将会带来最少麻烦、影响最少人的那个房间。”一丝微笑从他的脸上掠过。 接着他往椅背上一靠,说道:“那就是您现在地办公室。 ”他说。
