Chinese logic -34 千里马 | 老黄牛

waveChinese 30th June 2016


I'm more of a meerkat-spots-eagle kind of person.


DIALOGUE

[ 在公司食堂 ]

A:听说老王要当经理了。

B:我也听说了。真不容易!他在咱们公司干了快十年了。终于要当经理了。

A:是。老王的性格有点像老黄牛,老老实实,勤勤恳恳,光干活不说话。

A:怪不得这么久才升职。你看小李,才进公司一年多就当上经理了。

B:小李是典型的千里马,学历高,能力强。不是一般人能比的。

A:的确是。


TRANSLATION

[ In the dining hall of the company ]

A: I heard that Wang will be a manager.
B: I heard that, too. It's not easy! He has been working in our company for almost ten years. Finally, he is going to be a manager.
A: Yes. Wang is a bit like an ox, honest and well-behaved, diligent and conscientious, work a lot but say nothing.
A: No wonder it took so long for him to get a promotion. Look at Li, he just became a manager when he's joined the company for more than a year.
B: Li is a typical talent with strong academic background and capability. We couldn't compare ordinary people with him.
A: Exactly.
