Unsatisfied with the Current Situation
Situation 情景：Cathy hesitated to tell the officer Eric that she was tired of the job and wanted to work in another department. She called her friend Emily to ask for some advice.
Emily: Hello, this is Emily speaking.
Cathy: Hi, Emily, this is Cathy.
Emily: Cathy, how\'s everything going?
Cathy: Not so good. I want to talk with you about my job.
Emily: Your job? Is there anything wrong with it?
Cathy: No, it\'s my own problem. You know, I\'ve worked as a receptionist for a whole year. To some extent, I am tired of it.
Emily: Oh, I see. I know being a receptionist is not that exciting for you.
Cathy: Yep, I don\'t know whether I should tell Eric my thoughts or not.
Emily: Do you really mean to quit your job?
Cathy: Not really. I just want to change jobs. There is an opportunity for me, the personnel department is recruiting an office clerk now. I\'d like to have a try. I feel I can gain more from working in that kind of environment, not just in terms of salary.
Emily: That\'s great! If so, you should tell Eric what\'s on your mind. I think he will understand you and support your idea.
Cathy: Well, I\'ll talk with him about that tomorrow.
Emily: Good luck honey! I am expecting to hear good news.
Cathy: Thank you.
