Situation: Jim is asking his friend Don for advice about a job interview.

Don: The same as they asked me. They'll ask you why you want to work for them.

Jim: That's easy. I want to earn more money. 

Don: Yes, but you can't say that. You will have to think of some better reasons. 

Jim: I can't think of any just now, but I expect I shall think of something at the time. I hope I will anyway!
