37.经常坐飞机的人(在兼职工作中认识的销售经理,因业务能力强,还常去各分公司做培训, 因此需要飞到很多城市出差。我不知道为什么她经常坐飞机,或许大部分情况下她觉得长途旅行 还是飞机最快,效率第一位;而且公司还给报销机票,不用担心花费的问题。本题与Part2“擅长 工作的人”有串联。)

Off the top of my head, the first person that comes to mind is my previous co-worker Lisa. I know her because of a part-time job I had during last summer vacation, where my job responsibility was mainly marketing electronics. Lisa was a sales manager at the company and she flies the most often out of everyone I know244.

Lisa is a key employee in the company. I still remember that during the orientation when I started my job, someone in human resources introduced her to me and mentioned that Lisa’s sales team always had the highest sales revenue every quarter245 246 247 248 249. Plus, she is also in charge of training programs for employees of branches in other cities. Maybe that’s why she needs to fly to tons of cities in China every year. She mentioned that her highest record is visiting over ten cities in a month by plane. And it seems like she has been almost everywhere in China.

I don’t know why Lisa prefers a flight over a high-speed train246, but I suppose in most cases247, a flight is still the fastest means for long distance transportation. Most people who prioritize productivity248 would prefer traveling by plane. Not to mention that249 the company buys tickets for her. So she has no worries about the cost at all. Anyway, I’m kind of jealous of Lisa because it sounds so fun to make a living flying everywhere for business.

244 out of everyone I know:在我所有认识的人当中
245 every quarter:每个季度
246 a high-speed train:高铁
247 in most cases:在大多数情况下
248 prioritize productivity :注重效率第一位
249 Not to mention that:更别提…
