范例二：A new office
So, Monica, how do you like your new office?
Well, I love it. The room is special and clean with big windows and a lot of sunshine. There are plants along the corridor. Especially, I got my own desk with computer and telephone. Such a great place!
That’s very good. I once turn down a job offer just because the office is awful.
What was so bad about it?
Small rooms, small window, a small desk shared by three people. I would have been interrupted all the time and for sure not be able to deliver good work.
Sounds bad! Lucky you! You didn’t take that job. I think a good office environment is also important to work efficiently.
Totally agree. By the way, the number of the telephone on your desk is extension 506. You can pick up your office supplies from the supply room at the end of the corridor.
范例三：I love the design so much
I went to visit a customer in IVS Company the other day. Their offices were very impressive, especially their company Logo which is all over the place. There are Logo models in metal, copper, clove, paper. They are even printed on the wall paper and the balls of the table-lights. It is really decorated identity.
It is just too much. Don’t you feel it is an exaggerating style to decorate offices in that way?
Not at all! I like the design so much. The designer must have thought really hard to come out with such a brilliant concept.
Wow, I doubt that.
