I want to get a replacement part.
What happens next, Danny? » So that I can finished the job quickly?

What’s the next clause? » So that I can finish the job?
What happens before that? » I guess you would have to talk to the customer. So maybe we say, as Trent the tech, I want to identify the replacement part, so that I can figure out the next steps for the customer. » Okay, that sounds good.
