   Chances are slim!

Hear the storyline. Janice is thinking of whether or not she should quit and look for another job somewhere else because she hasn't gotten a raise in three years.... 
Eddie: What are the chances of getting a raise this year?
Janice: Chances are slim!
Eddie: Wow!  You haven't gotten a raise for how many years now?
Janice: (Heave a sigh). It's been three years!  The company keeps losing money and they can't afford to give anyone a raise.
Eddie: That's too bad.  Did you ever think of working somewhere else?
Janice: Yeah.  In fact, I have an interview next Monday.
Eddie: Good luck!
