1.Mary biasa mengobrol di telepon saat jam kerja, sampai suatu hari bosnya akhirnya memecat dia.
(Mary used to talk to her friends on the phone all day at work, until one day her boss finally gave her the ax.)
2.Kasihan Paul! Dia dipecat 2 hari sebelum Natal.
(Poor Paul! He was given the ax two days before Christmas.)
