5. Comprehension:

2595

Read the following passage and answer the questionS that

g.
co
m

follow :The manager of an office in Shelford was a hard-working man who never
arrived late and never left early. He was honest, clean, well-dressed and clever. But
one very important quality in men of good position he had never learnt, and that

ik

ib

lo

quality was politeness. He never took the trouble to be polite; he never considered the
feelings of his staff. If he wanted something done, he did not say,
..Do you rnind
doing this ?' He gave an order; 'Do this and be quick about it.' When he failed to
hear a question he was asked, he never said, 'l beg your pardon ? He just shouted,
'What ? 'The words 'Please' and 'Thank you' formed no part of his conversation.
If he had spoken gently, the work of the office would have been done just as
well, and probably better; for the staff were good. But one after another they left and
found work else where. No one could explain to him why they did not stay. [t was
difficult to go to the manager and tell him that he ought to spe'ak more politely. So, he
neYer understood the cause of the frequent changes in the office stafi and
irobably
did not know how impolite he was.
Even his chief clerk, Hollis, who had been with him for many years, was
getting tired of his rough way of speaking. The secretaries, the typists, and even the
office-boy, had often complained to Hollis and begged him to tetiifre manager about
it; but he never had the courage to do this until one Friday evening, when heiuddenly
took his opportunity.

ia
w

Hollis had worked hard for several nights on some difficult papers that the
manager wanted on Friday. It had needed a great effort to get them finished, but
Hollis had succeeded. With great satisfaction he brought them into the manager's

ed

office and laid them on his desk, thinking that this time he might receive a word of
praise. The manager looked at them and said nothing.
As the chief clerk reached the door on his way out of the office he turned round
and said, 'I beg your pardon, Sir ?' 'I didn't speak' said the manager shortly. .oh !,
said Hollis. 'I thought you said "Thank you',.

.p

Unfamiliar words :
Polite - respectful, considerate tow4(s others
