A: The Year-end Banquet (尾牙)
Jane: I can't wait until our company has the year-end banquet this year.
Mickey: Me neither. I heard that we're going to eat at one of the Cantonese restaurants downtown.
Jane: Excellent! I love Cantonese food. That sounds better than the place we went last year.
Mickey: Oh, come on! I thought the banquet was pretty good last year.
Jane: It was a nice looking place, but I don't think that the food was that great.
Mickey: The main thing that I remember was when the waitress accidentally brought out a dish of stir-fried squid.
Jane: Oh yeah, I think that she made a mistake because she heard the wrong thing. Everyone was nervous that they were going to get fired.
Mickey: I remember our coworker Joe got really nervous and kept drinking liquor. Finally at the end of the banquet he threw up. How embarrassing!
Jane: I'll bet the waitress got in a lot of trouble for that mistake.
Mickey: Yeah, her boss probably stir-fried some squid for her at their year-end banquet.
B: When Honesty Isn't the Best Policy ... (當誠實非上策時……)
Molly: Guess what Jeff ... I was shopping yesterday, and I found a great clothing store with cheap prices.
Jeff: That's nice. Did you buy anything there?
Molly: Yes, I was just hoping that you'd notice this new shirt that I bought there.
Jeff: Oh, you mean the one that you're wearing right now? Hmm ... uh, yeah, I can see how it might not have been very expensive.
Molly: Well, it really wasn't! As soon as I saw it I knew that I just had to buy it. So what do you think?
Jeff: Well, it certainly looks interesting ... I guess you could call that paisley design a bit "unique."
Molly: And I even picked up a shirt for you too. Look, it's a bright green shirt with a leopard-skin collar. Pretty cool, huh?
Jeff: Uh ... yeah, I guess you could say it's interesting. It's not usually the kind of thing I wear, but it's the thought that counts ... It was nice of you to buy it for me.
Molly: OK Jeff, just be honest and let me know what you think. Is this shirt the greatest shirt in the world or what!?
Jeff: Well, uh ... yeah, it might not match with some of my other clothes, but it's um ... yeah, well ... uh, nice. Thank you.
