A Dialogue conversation between boss and employee
Employee: Sir, may I come in?
Boss: Sure, come in.
Employee: Thank you, sir.
Boss: Yes, tell me. Is there any problem?
Employee: Oh no. The work is good and everything is fine.
Boss: Amazing. Then, what brings you at my cabin today?
Employee: Yeah, it is a family matter and I was hoping you could help me for the same.
Boss: Okay. Tell me what’s the problem. I’ll try helping you out. Is it financial?
Employee: Kind of. The thing is that I have a daughter and I have admitted her to one of the best school in our city and as you know, the fees of that school is a big amount to pay. So I was hoping that I could do overtime and I could get paid for that overtime. Also, I do not want to get involved and get stuck in getting loans to pay her fees.
Boss: Okay, your reason is genuine. It is good for you and your daughter that you have admitted her into the city’s best school and she can get good knowledge from that. You can work for as many hours you wish to and you will get paid for the same. I will make sure that you get paid for the additional work you are willing to take on your shoulders.
Employee: Thank you so much for helping me out, sir.
Boss: Oh! there is no need to thank me. You are getting your share of payment by the efforts you are putting in. Good, keep it up! Also I would like to give you one advice!
Employee: Sure, sir.
Boss: While you are working and you get slumped with work, do not forget to take some time out for your family. Not just the office, but your family needs you too.
Employee: Definitely, sir. I will keep that in mind.
- In the above given conversation, the phrase – ‘additional work you are willing to take on your shoulders’, does not have a literal meaning. However, it means to add more responsibility to the existing one.
