A Phrasal Verb Story.

As the alarm went off, Sarah jumped out of  bed, determined to tackle a day at the office with enthusiasm. She knew it was crucial to stay on top of things. After a quick shower and a hearty breakfast, she set off  to catch the bus. The morning traffic was horrendous, but she managed to pull through , making it to the office just in the nick of time.

Once at her desk, Sarah had to deal with a mountain of emails. She needed to sort through, reply to, and file them before her morning meeting. She also had to back up all her important files on the company server. Sarah had been putting off this task for a while, but it was time to get it done.

During the meeting, her boss asked her to follow up on a client issue. She needed to reach out to the client, iron out the details, and assure them that the problem would be sorted out promptly. It was crucial to build a good rapport with the client, and Sarah was determined to pull it off.

In the afternoon, the team had a brainstorming session to come up with new marketing ideas. Everyone pitched in, and they ended up coming up with some great concepts. Sarah was excited to roll them out in the upcoming campaign.

As the day was coming to a close, Sarah received a call from her co-worker, asking if she could fill in for her in an important meeting she couldn’t make. Sarah agreed so she had to brush up on the meeting agenda and prepare some notes at the last minute.

The workday seemed to drag on, but finally, it was time to wrap things up. Sarah packed her things, turned off her computer, and headed out the door, eager to unwind and relax at home.
