Michael: Billy, why are you sitting at this desk today?
Billy: My boss has moved me to a new desk and a new job.
Michael: Is it a promotion?
Billy: No, not really. Just a new job.
Michael: How do you feel about that?
Billy: Ok. I suppose but I like my old job better.
Michael: I hate change. I just get settled in and then things change again.
Billy: They say that a rut is a grave with the ends kicked out.
Michael: So change is positive?
Billy: It must be! I don't want to be in a grave yet!
1) Promotion: an increase in pay and responsibility at work
ex:The general manager said that my new job was a promotion but he would not offer me more money!
2) Rut: a track worn by a wheel, a groove in which something runs
ex:At the front of my house is a rut worn by my bicycle wheel.
3) Grave: large hole in the ground for a coffin
ex:My parents went shopping for their grave last weekend - I hope they don't need it soon.
4) Positive: good, the opposite of negative
ex:Everyone said positive things about my new necktie - so it must be very good.
