Sue跟坐在隔壁的同事George聊天。

Sue: Hey George, take a look at this article. It says several major airlines are considering allowing people to use their cell phones while in the air.

George: Oh no, really? That's one of the worst ideas I've ever heard.

S: Oh? Why do you feel that way?

G: Well, I fly for business quite frequently and a plane is now one of the last places where I don't have to hear people chatting on cell phones. I really enjoy the peace and quiet.

S: But it would be so convenient if we were able to make calls during long flights. Just think of how much work we could get done!

Sue告訴George, 現在好幾家航空公司都考慮允許乘客在飛行途中使用手機。George覺得這個主意簡直糟糕透了,因為飛機是公共場所里所剩無幾不用聽別人打電話的地方之一,I really enjoy the peace and quiet. George 說自己很享受這種寧靜,但是 Sue 覺得,如果能在飛機上打手機,就方便多了,好多事都能在飛機上處理完畢。

G: I think perhaps people are taking the idea of multitasking a little bit too far. I get calls from people on my cell phone and they say things like "Where were you? I've been trying to reach you all afternoon." Well, I was on the golf course and I turned off my cell phone...is that a crime?

S: I see what you mean. We are so connected these days that there is hardly any time for peace and quiet. I'll tell you a secret that's a little embarrassing: I leave my cell phone on all night long, just in case a call comes in.

George覺得有些人 take the idea of multitasking a little bit too far. to take something too far 意思是一件事做得過頭了,multitasking is spelled m-u-l-t-i-t-a-s-k-i-n-g, multitasking, multitasking 意思是同時做好幾件工作。George說,有時候去打高爾夫球,把手機關機 turn off the cell phone,就會有人因為找不到他而質問他到哪里去了,George跟Sue這些手機24小時開機的人形成了鮮明對照。

G: I know lots of people who do that. They say, "what if there is an emergency?" I guess I can understand why someone would feel that way, but I think sometimes we need to turn off our cell phones and tune out all the noise.

S: I can see your point. I get really frustrated by businesspeople that seem to never put down their cell phone. I have to listen to their long, boring conversations and there is really no way I can tune it out.

G: So people take calls every 2 or 3 minutes! Most of the time I think business conversations can probably wait until you get back to the office.

George認為,不能因為擔心別人有急事,就把手機隨時開機。Sue對George的看法表示贊同,說 I see your point. point在這里是觀點的意思,有時候別人打電話,交談內容很無聊,可是 There is no way I can tune it out. 我又沒辦法把這種噪音屏蔽掉,to tune something out 意思是不去管它,聽而不聞。George 也覺得,其實很多跟工作有關的電話都可以等回辦公室再打。

i agree the friend above that women are good at taking the idea of multitasking a little bit too far and it appears it is all effortless.haha,when i was sleeping i turned off my cellphones in order to tune out all the noise...is that a crime?
Cell phone is one of the necessary goods in our life, the most of people think that. But we must not use it in all times. We need peace and quiet. I also agree with George's point. Sometimes we need turn off our cell phones, especial in the nightime.

I agree with George! We may turn off our cell phones on weekends or at night to enjoy peace and quiet!
作者:Alumni
