Passage Two

My father had a small business employing about 15 people at any given time. We sold all sorts of dairy products, and many more, from a small store in front of the dairy building. During the summer months, rows of eager tourists lined up at that ice cream counter for a taste of my fathers exquisite homemade ice cream.

Because it was an extremely busy little store, the employees had to work very quickly for hours at a time, with little rest. One day, in 1976, we had a new employee, Debbie, who wanted to work in the store for the summer. She had never done this type of work before, but planned to give it her all.

On her first day, Debbie made just about every mistake in the book. She added up the sales wrong on the cash register. She charged the wrong prices for items. She gave the wrong bag of food to the wrong customer. And she dropped and broke a half-gallon of milk.

I couldn’t stand watching her struggle any longer. I went into my father s office and said “please go out there and put her out of her misery.” I expected him to walk right into the store and fire her on the spot.

Since my father s office was situated within view of the sales counter, he had no doubt seen what I was talking about. He got up from his desk and walked over to Debbie, who was standing behind the counter.

“Debbie,” he said, as he put his hand gently on her shoulder. “I have been watching you and I saw how you treated Mrs. Forbush. Debbie's face began to flush, and she looked as if she was about to cry. She struggled to remember Mrs. Forbush from the many women she had given the wrong change to or spilled milk on.

My father continued. “I’ve never seen Mrs. Forbush be so polite before. You really .knew how to handle her. I am sure she is going to want you to wait on her every time comes in. Keep up the good work.”

My father was a wise and compassionate employer. Because of this, Debbie became loyal and hard-working employee for 16 years--and a friend for life.

我的父亲有一个小商店一般情况下雇用约15个人。我们在乳品大楼前的一个小商店里出  售各种奶制品及其他食品。在夏天的几个月里热情的游客在冰淇淋柜台前排起长队来品尝我  父亲精心自制的冰淇淋。

因为这是一个非常忙碌的小商店,员工们必须很快地连续工作几个小时很少有时间休息。均化年的天,我们店里来了个新员工,她叫戴比,她想在夏天里在商店工作。她以前从未过这种工作,但打算尽力去做。

  在她上班的第一天,戴比每一步都做得不对,她在收银机上算错了账。她收错了钱,她把食品袋给错了客户。而且她把半加仑牛奶弄掉地上摔碎了;  我实在看不下去了。我走进父亲的办公室说"请您出去告诉她别让她这么痛苦了"我是希望他到店里去解雇她。

  我父亲的办公室能够看到收银台,毫无疑问他看到了我说的情况,他从办公桌起身走到戴  比面前.当时戴比是站在柜台后面的。  他把手轻轻地放在她的肩上说"戴比我一直看着你,我看到你是如何对待伏布什夫人的"戴比的脸开始红了起来,她看上去要哭。她努力回想起她给伏布什夫人找错了钱或洒了牛奶的事。

我的父亲继续说我从来没有见过伏布什夫人在你面前的这种客气之态,你真的知道如何接待她。我肯定她每次来都会要你给她服务。就这么好好干吧。

我的父亲是一个聪明和富有同情心的老板。正因为这样,戴比成为店里16年来忠诚和勤奋的员工也成了我们一生的朋友。
