3) Everything is going perfectly on your project

4) Your building is ahead of schedule and under budget

5) This will be my second vacation this year

11) I can’t believe they pay me this much for so little work

12) I’m not much of a book reader

13) Just cut that tree down, there are plenty of trees all over this neighborhood

14) That’s okay, nobody will notice it besides me so you can leave it that way
