播客原文

-Pezg7,VXu6k&m9w5n9g

Yuko: What's all this?
优子:这是怎么回事?
Reza: We're gearing up for the busy season. We don't want to get caught with our pants down like we did last season.
雷扎:我们正在为旺季做准备cq@#[]@UKY。我们不想像上一季度那样忙乱地手无足措+6ry1YOW_EX&k1W0oc
Yuko: Last season, we had an usual number of visitors because of the unseasonably warm weather. We can't expect lightening to strike twice.
优子:因为反常的温暖天气,上一季度我们这里的游客数量骤增JvRIrv,G&+I。我们无法想象在毫无征兆的情况下再次被打击83kmp!qsBUPvrwn
Reza: We have to prepare for every contingency. If we get a flood of visitors, we need to be able to handle the surge in traffic. These three months are our peak months anyway, so we should expect an upswing in business soon.
雷扎:我们必须做好各项应急准备CE&l_)^sxI_.io。如果游人蜂拥而至,我们必须能够应付交通洪流=Sf0J-a-UkMHh(%。不论怎样,这三个月是高峰期,我们应该预料到业务会有所增长-[pb6Ius[&3QThpp%gy
Yuko: But what if people don't come in large numbers as you're anticipating? All of these extra supplies will go to waste.
优子:但是,万一没有像预期的那样、有大量的游客前来该怎么办?所有这些多余的供应都将被浪费掉&KzXA.d)B,,DsV4AOM~
Reza: No, they won't. Most of this stuff isn't perishable, so we'll just save it for the next time we get a rush of visitors. Or, maybe, I'll just invite my buddies over at the end of the season and we'll have a party.
雷扎:不,不会的JNbISXBPlNmbId6~S~B。大多数东西都不容易腐烂,所以可以把它们留到下次游客高峰期时再用9=A^)wDMX&=(7(Uy(o。或者,在季度结尾时邀请我的哥们过来玩6U-&][rD2T!5O
Yuko: So when you said that we have to plan for every contingency, this was what you meant.
优子:当你说我们必须做好各项应急计划时,其实是指这件事RZA5M.!.U[~A_4B-fye!
Reza: Exactly!
雷扎:正是!
