I tried to explain to the manager that we had been working on that together, but with no result. I just had to (2) _ follow-up _ the fact that I wasn't going to be noticed.

I was so upset that I decided to (3) _ get on _ of that company as soon as I could – which I did 3 months later. Now I'm (4) _ facing up to _ in another company, in a slightly different field, but I really like it. It was certainly a change for the better!
