In a speaking practice recording, a guy (Person A) is trying to place himself at the center of attention in a conversation about his job. The conversation goes:
Lady: Veronica talks about you all the time. I guess you must be pretty busy at work.
PERSON A: Well, yeah, a V. P. position is not easy, you know! I implement policies and procedures nationwide, of various departments, as well as train junior managers in FDA and EPA regulations. [...] that alone means I have 1500 employees under me. [...] what do YOU do for a living, Arthur?
Arthur: Oh, I'm a TOP GUN PILOT.
I can not see exactly how this response could work against a guy who is going on about his fabulous position at work.
