Would please tell me if my choice of tenses is correct ?
Bill : I used to be [if there were a blank here what would the teacher write as an indication to find "used to be"?] proud of my work; but how 1. can you take a pride in what you 2. a) are doing / b) do (?) when every two or three years they put a new manager with new-fangled (or tangled ? what's the meaning of that word ?) ideas in charge of the factory – and he tells you what you 3. have been doing is all wrong ?
Ted : Why 4. have you stayed on all these years then, Bill ?
Bill : Well, it’s the same thing wherever you go. However well you 5. do your job, you 6. don’t get on in any firm unless you 7. are a friend of the manager’s – and the present manager 8. a) has certainly been / b) is (?) certainly no friend of mine.
Thank you in advance.
