Gloria: Really? I didn’t know he was Bucking for promotion.
Sam: He’s been trying to become a manager for three years, but other people have been promoted over him or they’ve hired from outside the company.

Sam: Haven’t you noticed that people who take Extended leave to have children or try for some type of Work-life balance are Passed over for Plum assignments, Raises, and promotions? There are definite Limits to advancement.
