- aI don’t know what I’m going to do! It’s going to be impossible to make ends meet if I lose my job!
- bDon’t worry. I don't think you’re going to lose your job over one mistake.
- aIt was a rather big mistake. When you work as an investment adviser, onc small mistake can cost the company millions.
- bBut it wasn’t just you who was involved, right? You were only doing what your supervisor told you to do.
- aThat’s true, but my supervisor is very dishonest. There’s no reason he needs to tell our boss the truth. I’m sure he will tell our boss that it was all my fault, and there’s nothing I can do about that.My boss won't believe me if I tell him the truth.
- bLet’s think realistically about what might happen. How much money do you have in your savings?
- aI have enough to live off of for about 3 months. But I really don't want to spend my life savings on just living! I’d rather invest my money somehow.
- bWell, that’s good. If you lose your job, you can just move in with me until you find another job. That will save you plenty of money.
- aThat’s very generous of you. I guess that would work.
- bIf you lose your job, you just have to go for a few months without buying all the junk you usually buy. If you live frugally, you’ll save plenty of money.
- aI guess working with so much money has made me rather greedy. Maybe losing my job would be a good thing!
