Chinese Pinyin

Dàiwéi: Wǒmen zuìzǎo dào ne! Shìfǒu yào zuòdào yuánzhuō lǐbiān kàoqiáng de dìfāng, děngxià Wáng lǎobǎn bǐjiào hǎo jìnlái?
Mīmī: Jíshǐ xiāndào, wǒmen yě bù yīnggāi wǎng lǐmiàn zuò, yīnwèi nàshì zhǔrén de zuòwèi.
Dàiwéi: Wǒ háishì bié duōguǎnxiánshì, wànyī yīnwèi bù liǎojiě yìngchóu wénhuà nàochū luànzi kě bùhǎo.
Mīmī: Wǒmen shì chéngbāoshāng, jiēle Wáng lǎobǎn de xiàngmù. Tā shì fù wǒmen xīnshuǐ de jīnzhǔ, suǒyǐ duì tā jìngjiǔ shí yídìng yào zhàn qǐlái, cáinéng zhǎnxiàn chéngyì.
Dàiwéi: Chúcǐ zhīwài háiyǒu shénme shāngwù wǎncān yào zhùyì de guīzé ma?
Mīmī: Yǒude. Lìrú jiézhàng shí jíshǐ zhīdào duìfāng yào qǐngkè, wǒmen háishì yào lǐmào xìng de qiǎngzhe qù mǎidān.

Chinese Hanzi

Dàiwéi: 我们最早到呢! 是否要坐到圆桌里边靠墙的地方, 等下王老板比较好进来?
Mīmī: 即使先到,我们也不应该往里面坐, 因为那是主人的座位。
Dàiwéi: 我还是别多管闲事, 万一因为不了解应酬文化闹出乱子可不好。
Mīmī: 我们是承包商,接了王老板的项目。 她是付我们薪水的金主, 所以对她敬酒时一定要站起来,才能展现诚意。
Dàiwéi: 除此之外还有什么商务晚餐要注意的规则吗?
Mīmī: 有的。例如结账时即使知道对方要请客, 我们还是要礼貌性地抢着去买单。

English Conversation

Dàiwéi: We are the first ones here! Should we take the seats on the inner side of the round table by the wall, that way it’s easier for boss Wang to come in?
Mīmī: Even though we are here first, we shouldn’t take up the inner seat, because that is for the host.
Dàiwéi: Maybe it's better I don't meddle, just in case I get us in trouble for lack of understanding of the Chinese dinner culture.
Mīmī: We are contractors who took on boss Wang’s project. She is the one writing our paychecks, so we should stand for her toast to show our sincerity.
Dàiwéi: Besides that, are there any other rules worth noting for business dinners?
Mīmī: Yes. For example, when it’s time to pay, even though we know it’s their treat, we should still pretend to go for the bill out of courtesy.
