Ryan: I have decided to quit this job. I came today to hand in my notice, Sir.
Duke: You’re leaving? Do you have a good reason?
Ryan: My brother’s started a new business and he asked me to work with him.
Duke: I see. That will be a good partnership for you. However, you can always come back here if you want to.
Ryan: Thank you Sir, I’ll remember that.
Ryan: Today is my last day in the office.
