Katherine and Ann are at an annual staff outing.
Katharine: It's funny, I'm never excited about these corporate outings, but I always have fun when I get here.
Ann: Ha, I feel the same way. I think it's because management gets so enthusiastic about it. It's hard not to get swept up in their excitement.
Katharine: Absolutely. Now, are the afternoon teambuilding exercises mandatory?
Ann: I think so, but you can choose which ones you want to participate in.
Katharine: That's good. And then the CEO will give us his annual pep talk before dinner?
Ann: Yes. I'm interested in how he's going to spin the recent layoffs into something to be cheerful about!
Katherine 跟Ann 正在參加一年一度員工旅遊。
Ann: 哈，我也這麼覺得。我想這是因為高層熱衷於此，很難不被他們的興奮之情 所影響。
Ann: 是的。我很好奇他要如何將最近的裁員風波說得令 人開心。
