Hi, Tom. As Senior VP, I have to deal with the poor efficiency of this department.
All right. What do you have in mind?
Well, first of all, you should stop the projects you’re working on and go to an efficiency seminar.
But we are pretty busy right now. Is there another way we can accomplish your goals here?
Maybe we should fire the staff and hire new employees.
On second thought, an efficiency seminar might help. I’ll try to arrange for it.
On second thought – поменять решение, подумав; с другой стороны
I’d like a cup of coffee, please – actually, On second thought, I’ll have a beer.
Я бы хотел чашку кофе, пожалуйста. Хотя, нет, я возьму пиво.
