Show someone the ropes
Beef up a resume
Miss a deadline
Land a job
Woman: Hello Lisa. Welcome to Cavendish Enterprises. So today it’s your first day, correct? Great! So Mike here will be showing you the ropes!
Lisa: Hey, Gosh I’m so glad I have someone to help me. I gotta be honest with you. I beefed up my resume quite a bit, he he he. Also, during the interview process I may have “accidentally” forgotten to say I got fired from my previous job for missing a few deadlines. I honestly couldn’t believe it when they told me I’d landed the job. I hope it won’t be too hard. It’s just… I’m a little worried about my boss, Mr Sanders. Do you know him? I heard he is terrible. He’s like super mean and doesn’t care about his employees, you know what I mean? Anyway, sorry, I haven’t even properly introduced myself, my name is Lisa Smith, I’m the new Project Manager.
Mike: Nice to meet you, Lisa. I’m Mike, Mike Sanders.
Lisa: Oh my gosh, you have the same last name as my b-. Oh. Oh oh.
