How nice to finally meet you.
It’s been such an agony to wait for you to arrive.
How delightful to make your acquaintance.
We all expect you to behave, spread joy, have respect for the elderly, give hand and don’t make a nuisance of yourself. Your predecessor didn’t score high in our hearts.
Better be on the lookout to be a friend rather than a foe.
Best foot forward, and work smart for the best, for hope does not get one into action, really.
