Congratulations, Hiroki! You’ve equaled the record for exceeding the quarterly sales quota.
Really? I can’t believe it. Who do I share it with?
Actually, it’s me! I doubled my quota in my first year as a rep. Similarly, you doubled yours last quarter.
So, do I get a big bonus?
I’m afraid not. But if you beat the record next quarter, you’ll get a huge bonus.
OK, I’m sure I can do even better. Just watch me.
Welcome to our headquarters. My name is Brian.
Nice to meet you, Brian. I’m Taeko. I’ve seen pictures of this place on your website. But it’s bigger than I imagined.
Yes, we’ve recently expanded. Our company is growing all the time. So, you live in Tokyo. Is that right?
Yes. I live in a convenient part of the city. On the other hand, the rent is high.
Oh, it’s probably not as high as this area.
Compared to last year, this year’s school festival was a huge success.
I agree. What did we do differently this year?
Some students created a special phone app.
Oh, really? How does it work?
Well, students with the app go to each booth and take a selfie next to it. If they go to more than ten booths, they get a prize.
What a great idea! Let’s do it again next year.
Martin, is something wrong? You seem a little down.
Do I? Well, I’ve been thinking about a girl I met.
A girl? Where did you meet her?
At the anime event I went to last week.
Did you exchange phone numbers?
Yes, but she hasn’t called me yet.
Instead of waiting for her to call you, why don’t you just text her?
I’ll wait a bit longer.
Come on. Be more assertive!
You always say that.

You look happy!
Do I? Well, compared to last month, I’ve lost two kilos.
Probably that’s because I stopped eating my kids’ leftovers.

What time shall we get up tomorrow?
Instead of sleeping in, why don’t we go out for breakfast?
I found a great cafe just around the corner.
