ジュルズさん、ベンさん、

Hello everyone. Welcome to E-mail Picks. I was at home all week last week. I got the

0:00:11.460,0:00:16.619
flu. Influenza. So I couldn't upload any
new Bizmates Channel videos, so I'm very

0:00:16.619,0:00:20.400
sorry about that. So I came back to the
office yesterday and I was doing a

0:00:20.400,0:00:25.109
little catch-up with the salespeople. I
often worked with him closely. And they

0:00:25.109,0:00:28.949
were telling me that there was some
translation work they needed help on. And

0:00:28.949,0:00:34.649
I always take on the translation work.
But of course, last week, I was gone. So

0:00:34.649,0:00:39.570
my colleagues Jules and Ben covered for
me. They did the translation work for the

0:00:39.570,0:00:44.309
salespeople although it was outside
their scope of responsibility. And they

0:00:44.309,0:00:47.969
didn't even tell me about this. So today,
I want to write a thank-you note to

0:00:47.969,0:00:53.489
those two people. Okay, so here goes. Hi
Jules and Ben, Thank you for covering

0:00:53.489,0:00:56.879
for me while I was gone because of the
flu. I was checking with the salespeople

0:00:56.879,0:01:00.780
to see what I had missed out on and they
told me you helped them out in place of

0:01:00.780,0:01:04.979
me. I really appreciate your doing that
for us. I've left some chocolate in the

0:01:04.979,0:01:07.200
fridge just for you. Please help
yourselves.

0:01:07.200,0:01:13.530
Thanks again! Kyota. OK. So as you can
see, I've written "thanks" three times in

0:01:13.530,0:01:18.119
one e-mail. "Thank you for covering for me," "I really appreciate your doing that" and

0:01:18.119,0:01:24.420
"Thanks again." "Do something in place of
someone" means to do something that was

0:01:24.420,0:01:29.850
supposed to be someone else's job
because that someone couldn't do it. OK?

0:01:29.850,0:01:34.079
And in the last paragraph, I mentioned
that I left some chocolate in the

0:01:34.079,0:01:38.340
refrigerator as a small gesture of
appreciation. OK. So there you go. An

0:01:38.340,0:01:42.600
e-mail to thank your colleagues for
covering for you. I really hope they like

0:01:42.600,0:01:45.899
the chocolates. Anyway, that's it for
today. Thanks for watching and I'll see

0:01:45.899,0:01:48.649
you next week.
