____ d. Hey! I can make $2 more an hour for the same job at that factory. It's time for a change.

____ e. Now that I've completed this training, I should be eligible for a supervisor's position.

____ f. If I guarantee that I will stay on the new job for a year, they will pay for my training and get me started in this new office. Sounds good to me!
