상황 #1 :  Joey confidently answers the questions of the interviewer during the job interview 

Interviewer:  Tell me something interesting about yourself.

Interviewer: Wow! That is impressive. Could you tell me about your weakness?

Joey: Sir, I had used neither my annual vacation leave nor had gone to the company sponsored trips.I am working on these personal and professional shortcomings. 

Interviewer: I totally agree with you Joey. Take a leave when you need it to nurture your marketing creativity.


상황 #2: Duke and Lily are listing the things they want to do before turning 30

Duke: Oh my gosh, Lily.  Next year, both of us are turning 30. What are the things you want to do before turning 30 ?

Duke: Those activities are extreme. Well for me, I had neither swam with sharks in an oceanarium nor joined TED Talk. I am looking forward in doing risky and promising things this year.

Lily: I’ll be really proud of you when you join Ted Talk.

Duke: Let’s do something different this year.

Lily: That’s a deal!~
