Becky, ni hao,

Near the end of the lesson a statement is made as follows:
"We are late for the meeting. The boss is going to go crazy.

Is it correct to interpret this in Mandarin as follows?:

Nimen shi wan hui. Laoban yao fa feng.

"Nǐ hǎo, Douglas!" You can interpret it as: "我们开会迟到了。老板要疯了。" "Wǒmen  kāi huì chí dào le. Lǎobǎn yào fēng le." If you have any other questions, please feel free to let me know.

"Nǐ hǎo, takak!" Good answers! 
Usually we say "你快去上班!" "Nǐ kuài qù shàng bān!" to ask someone to hurry. Sometimes we can omitt "你" in this sentence, just as your second answer. "快去上班!"Kuài qù shàng bān!"
