A Proficiency Prophet  
 Our boss was a prophet for proficiency. When he proclaimed the merits of improving productivity and making the company more profitable he spoke in such prose that hecould have propagated anything and we would have followed. Whatever he professed was said in such a profound manner thatwe were all immediately propelled to be more productive. And his prophecies were all true. His propaganda helped prolong the sucess of our company before its promising future came to a sudden halt. Our boss was prosecuted with propping up our company as a cover for child smuggling.
  This only happened because police had caught our boss addcpting a proposition from an undercover policeman to kidnap the prodigy of the mayor of our city. The crime had never happened, but the damage had been done. We had lost our boss, the prophet, the hero and the company was devastated. All of us who had proliferated the proclamations of our boss could only shake our heads in disbelief. We could not believe that such a strong person would be involved with such an evil business at the same time as he was doing such a good job at building our company. Only a few of us connected the fact that our boss was prone to accept challenges. If he thought something couldn't be done, then he would try it. But our company had still been a prop for his illegal activities, and we had all been fooled!

料事如神的预言者
  我的老板是个料事如神的预言者。在他宣布提高生产力、使公司更加赚钱的好处时,他说的像写散文一样,好象他什么事情都会宣传,我们只好听他的。不管他想表示什么,他说的话总是很深刻,总是能激励我们马上提高生产力。而且他的预言总是对的,他的宣传使我们公司的成功能得以延续,后来公司的光明前途才突然停止了。我们的老板被起诉支持我们的公司掩护拐卖儿童。
  这事被发觉是因为警察看到我们的老板从一个警察密探那里接受了绑架市长天才儿童的建议。绑架并没有发生,但是破坏已经造成,我们失去了我们的老板,那个预言者和英雄,公司也给弄垮了。我们所有扩散过老板的宣言的人只能不相信地摇摇头,我们不能相信这样一个强人会同时卷入这种邪恶的交易,因为发展我们的公司他是功不可没的。只有少数几个人想到了这么一个事实,那就是我们的老板倾向于接受挑战。如果是他认为不能做的事情,那么他就要试一试。但是我们公司毕竟支持过他的非法活动,我们都被愚弄了。
