C
Dear Hamilton,
We are fortunate that in such a large, high-pressure office we all get along so well. You are one of the people who keep the social temperature at such a comfortable setting. I don’t know anyone in the office who is better liked than you.
You can perhaps help with this. The collection of contributions towards gifts for employees’ personal-life events is becoming a little troubling. Certainly, the group sending of a gift is reasonable now and then. In the past month, however, there have been collections for two baby shower gifts, one wedding shower gift, two wedding gifts, one funeral(葬礼)remembrance, four birthday gifts, and three graduation gifts.
It’s not only the collected-from who are growing uncomfortable (and poor), but the collected-for feel uneasy receiving gifts from people who don’t know them outside the office, who wouldn’t even recognize their graduating children, their marrying daughters and sons, or their dead relatives.
This is basically a kind gesture (and one that people think well of you for), but the practice seems to have become too wide-ranging and feels improper in today’s office setting.
Thank you for understanding.



Hamilton is expected to _______.

  A. show more kindness

  B. discontinue the present practice

  C. quit being the organizer for gift giving

  D. know more about co-worker’s families

答案是B

文章中提到了很多HAMILTON,送礼物的情节,但是写信的人是希望他不要这么做了,因为这样会让别人莫名其妙。EG:but the collected-for feel uneasy receiving gifts from people who don’t know them outside the office问题是HAMILTON被作者希望不做的事。希望你明白!
