Zh: 不过,出乎所有人的期待,王强并没有生气,相反他注视着自己被热茶淋湿的裤腿,突然笑了,他说:"李伟,你这么做是不是想让我知道,有时候热茶也可以帮助缓解紧张的商务会议氛围呀。"
En: However, to everyone's surprise, Wang Qiang did not get angry. On the contrary, he stared at his wet pants and suddenly laughed, saying, "Li Wei, are you trying to show me that sometimes hot tea can help relieve the tense atmosphere of a business meeting?"

Zh: 在场的人都被王强幽默的反应弄得大笑起来,刚刚还紧张的会议室顿时活动起来。有人拿出手机拍下这段有趣的情景,并写下:"当商业的剧烈冲突被一杯热茶令人惊讶地化解。"张梅也笑着为李伟解围,王强也大方地接受了李伟的道歉。
En: Everyone present burst into laughter at Wang Qiang's humorous response, and the previously tense meeting room suddenly came alive. Someone took out their phone to capture this interesting moment and wrote, "When intense business conflicts are surprisingly resolved by a cup of hot tea."
