Bianca:Today's the day.
We're supposed to find out who the new manager is going to be.
I hope they're not making a mistake by hiring internally.
Conrad:I just hope they don't pick Melissa.
She would be a disaster.
Bianca:Why do you say that? I like Melissa.
Conrad:I like her, too, but she can be so autocratic.
Give her a little power and it goes to her head.
Every decision would be top-down.
Bianca:You might be right, but I think Quentin would be worse.
He would be so laissez-faire that it would be like not having a manager at all.
He'd delegate everything and then sit back and do nothing.
Conrad:I'll grant you that. Quentin would be a horrible manager.
康拉德:我同意 。昆汀当经理肯定很可怕 。
What about Jemima?
She's popular with nearly everybody in the office.
Bianca:I suppose Jemima would be a bearable option.
She likes to collaborate and often consults with other people to get their feedback.
But I'm backing a different horse, one that would be the ideal.
Conrad:Me? No way. I don't have a chance in hell.
康拉德:我吗?不可能 。我根本没有机会 。
And plus, how do you know I'd be a good manager?
Bianca:You'd be democratic in your decision-making and I'd like that.
You wouldn't rule with an iron fist.
Conrad:That's what you think.
Give me a little power and you can start calling me commandant.
