Gary: I have a meeting with the boss at noon.
Cathy: Did she call a meeting with everyone?
Gary: No. I'm going to try to negotiate a raise.
Cathy: She's not easy to negotiate with.
Gary: I've worked here for two years and haven't received a raise yet.
Cathy: She's not good at giving raises.
Gary: Well, that needs to change. Do you have any tips for me?
Cathy: Talk fast. She's very impatient.
Gary: I know exactly what I'm going to say and I'm ready!
Cathy: Ok! Good luck and let me know what happens.
