【听力原文】

部门经理 Paul Chen 和他的上司 Sue Krammer 要开除一名雇员。

P: Sue, I really need your help with this one.

S: Oh? What's the problem?  

P: I've been asked to fire Tom Smith.

S: Oh...yeah...firing someone is hard. I've had to do it many times.

P: I hate it. It's probably the worst part of my job as a manager.

S: But...it has to be done and somebody's got to do it. In this case...you.

Paul 要解雇 Tom Smith, 问 Sue 该怎么做。Sue 说,开除手下确实是一件头痛的事情,但 Somebody's got to do it. 总要有人去做。

P: I know...I just want some advice on how to do this properly.

S: Well, let's review Tom's case, shall we? First question: Have you given him fair warning?

P: I believe so. I spoke to Tom in March and in May. I informed him he was on probation.  

S: OK...so he knows he's on thin ice. So this action isn't going to be a complete surprise to him, right?

P: No. He should understand by now that the company is not really happy with his performance.

Paul 说,他事先警告过 Tom. I informed him he was on probation. on probation 意思是留职查看。换句话说,He knows he's on thin ice. on thin ice 如履薄冰,在这的意思就是他知道公司对他的表现不满意,知道自己可能会丢饭碗。
