Monica:That's why I don't think it's doable.
We should consider other ideas.
That was Monica. She's my co-worker and my nemesis.
那就是莫妮卡 。她是我的同事，同时也是我的竞争对手 。
She criticizes all of my ideas, but I've learned that the best defense is to not get defensive.
Kazuya:I appreciate your feedback.
I understand your reservations, but let me show you these figures I've worked up, which I believe will address your concerns.
I knew Monica would attack my ideas, so I had come prepared.
Monica:That's all very impressive, but I still think we need to consider other options.
Unfortunately, when Monica digs in her heels, I know that the only thing to do is to placate her.
That plus a delaying tactic usually works.
Kazuya:Your comments have given me a lot to think about.
We're running short on time and we want to get to the other topics for discussion, so let's come back to it next week.
Luckily, I know something else about Monica:She has a short attention span.
By next week, she'll be onto her next victim!
