Jimmy: My cousin Sal said that he put in an application for a job here.
Suzanne: Yeah, that’s right.
Suzanne: Well, what?
Jimmy: Are you going to hire him?
Suzanne: I’m not sure. He doesn’t have any experience and he didn’t provide any references.
Jimmy: I can vouch for him. Sal is solid. He’s a really nice guy.
Suzanne: I appreciate you putting in a good word for him, but I need more assurance than that he’s a nice guy. He needs to have the temperament, work ethic, and skills for this job.
Jimmy: What he doesn’t know he’ll learn on the job. He’s a quick study.
Suzanne: How can I justify hiring someone with no experience, while passing up applicants who are better qualified?
Jimmy: He has my ringing endorsement. What else do you need? He’ll work as hard as I do.
Suzanne: That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.
