地道美语听力播客:错过截止日期

Oliver:I've just had to tell a client that I'm running behind and I won't make the deadline.

Alena:How did she take it?

Oliver:Not so well, at first.

I knew she wouldn't be happy, so I've been in a dilemma for days:

Should I tell her now that I'm going to miss the deadline, or wait until the deadline has passed.

Alena:For what it's worth, I think you did the right thing.

It gives her advance notice in case it affects other parts of her project.

Oliver:That's what I thought, too.

I also offered to make up for any inconvenience the delay would cause.

Alena:Did she take you up on it?

Oliver:No, she said that giving me a three-day extension wouldn't set her back, but if it dragged on for longer than that, it would put her in an awkward spot, and she would let me know.

Alena:I'm glad you came to an understanding.

So you'll have it done by the new deadline, right?

Oliver:Yes, even if I have to do without sleep, food, or bathroom breaks for the next week.

Alena:That's very dedicated of you, though potentially messy.
