A: Okay, here are the graphs and figures for this month's sales. Let's review them all together.

B: This first one , I have a question.... This graph is marking the sales perfomance for our line of hair products, right? Can this line be right? It looks like our sales plummeted. I can't believe we did that poorly.... If I remember correctly, sales went down slightly, but not as dramatically as the graph shows.

A: I think you are looking at the wrong line. The rapid drop in sales wasn't our hair products. You are correct, the hair product sales decreased slightly, but not dramatically. The one that didn't do so hot this month was the cleaning products. I think there was a problem in the marketing plan. Some people were offended by our advertisements for the cleaning products, but it was already too late to mitigate the damage, so our mistake shows up in the sales.

B: Well, the good news is the new industrial cleaning products really took off. Look how the sales have shot up over the last two weeks.

A: That is our one major success. If you look at the other graphs, you can see that most of the other product lines remained steady with little increase.

B: At lease they stayed the same. That's better than dropping.好了,这是本月销售情况的图表和数字.我们一起来看看吧.
这第一个,我有个问题…这个图表中标出了我们护发系列产品的销售情况,对吗?这条线画得对吗?好像我们的销售额直线下降.我不相信我们干得那么差…如果我没记错的话,销售额只是略微下降,而不是像图表上所显示的那样明显.
我想你是看错行了.销售额直线下降的不是我们的护发产品.你说得没错,护发产品的销售额是有些下降,但不是那么明显.本月卖得不够好的是洗涤产品.我想我们的销售计划存在问题.有些人对我们洗涤产品的广告很反感,可是要减轻伤害已经有点儿迟了,因此我们的失误在销售额上得到了验证.
好了,好消息是新的工业洗涤产品卖得非常火.看最近这两周的销售额已经直线上升.
这是我们最大的成功之一.看一下其他图表,你还会看到我们其他产品的销售曲线大多保持稳定,略有增长.
这些产品至少还维持原状,那比下降要好多了.Plummet: to fall suddenly and quickly from a high level or position 暴跌;速降
Share prices plummeted to an all-time low. 股票价格暴跌到历史最低点.
Her spirits plummeted at the thought of meeting him again. 一想到又要见到他,她的心情便直往下沉.
The jet plummeted into a row of houses. 那架喷气式飞机一头栽进一排房子里.
Mitigate: to make something less harmful, serious, etc. 减轻;缓和
