This might be your chance to make a good impression on the big boss...or it might be your chance to make a lasting impression that's, well...not so good. Today, your Korean bosses will be checking inventory levels. Your section chief asks you in Korean, "do you have a glue stick?" You reply in Korean, "no sir, I do not have one." Moments later the Department Manager asks in Korean, "do you have a laptop computer?" You reply in Korean, "no sir, I do not have one." Finally, the President asks in Korean, "do you have a window near your desk?" Stifling your laughter, you reply in Korean, "no sir, there isn't a window in the entire office!" He is so impressed by your politeness that he orders your boss to create windows for everyone! Wait until he finds out your office is underground!
