දෛනික ඉංග්‍රීසි | Daily English | The Story Of The Last Man - P9

The Story Of The Last Man*
A thriller, where what you see is not what you get!

*This is from a movie script that was never produced due incomplete work. Maybe now we can complete it and use to learn English in the same time. 
Part 9

John needed all his team players to be seated at the sales floor by 9AM every morning. He didn’t care of client meeting or any other bullshit. He just needed them there on time.

Sales floor was a big conference room which was the office of the entire sales team and no one had cubicles. Not even John who was the manager and the leader. The concept of no cubicle for sales staff was brought XL System by John himself with his promotion as the team manager. Originally, everyone hated it while the directors loved it. It was very cost effective for the company and very productive as everyone is always under watch.

Why previous managers never thought of it? Maybe they were not smart enough to work out this highly productive work culture or maybe they just wanted to waste their time in big offices and brag about it.
But John, he never bragged anything but he was the youngest team manager and the most productive man in the history of XL Systems.

As he came to the room, everyone said “Good morning John”. John went to his seat and looked at them.

“Morning,... Every client believes in what they were told to believe. If you tell your clients that XL Systems is a software, they will believe it. That’s why you should never say so.”
