资料原文

Happily for the young employee Smith, his employer wanted him to do well in the company.
So the employer talked turkey to him.
She said, Your idea would be unfair to our buyers.
Think of another way to save money.
A century ago, to talk turkey meant to talk pleasantly.
Turkeys in the barnyard were thought to be speaking pleasantly to one another.
In recent years, the saying has come to mean an attempt to teach something important.
Word expert Charles Funk tells how he believes this change took place.
He says two men were shooting turkeys together.
One of them was a white man.
The other was an American Indian.
The white man began stating reasons why he should get all the turkeys for himself.
But the American Indian stopped him.
He told the white man, Now, I talk turkey to you.
Mister Smith thought of a better idea after his employer talked turkey to him.
He was given an increase in pay.
So if your idea will not wash, try talking turkey to yourself and come up with a better idea.
