A: Oh great! This stupid computer froze again! That’s the third time today! Hey Samuel, can you come take a look at my PC? It’s acting up again. It must have a virus or something.
B: Just give me a second; I’ll be right up.
B: I ran a virus scan on your computer, and it turns out that you have a lot of infected files!
A: But I’m quite careful when I’m browsing the internet, I have no idea how I could have picked up a virus.
B: Well, you have to make sure that your anti-virus software is updated regularly; yours wasn’t up to date, that’s probably what was causing your problems.
A: Ok. Anything else?
B: Yeah, try not to kick or hit the computer!
A: Um yeah& Sorry about that.
A: So, are we all ready to go?
B: Yup, I think so. The car’s packed; we have munchies and music, and the map’s in the car.
A: Did you get the camera?
B: Got it! Did you fill up the tank?
A: Yup, it’s all set.
B: You’re sure we’re not forgetting anything?
A: I’m sure… we’ve got all our bases covered.
B: Well& let’s get going then! I love road trips!
B: Um… do you think we can make a pit stop?
A: But we’ve only been on the road for ten minutes.
B: I know, but I forgot to go to the bathroom before we left.
A: I can’t believe it took us two hours to get here. The traffic in New York is unbelievable.
B: Yeah, but just relax honey, we’re here and we’re going on vacation. In a few hours we’ll be in Hawaii, and you’ll be on the golf course.
A: Oh no! Look at that line! It must be a mile long! There’s no way I’m waiting for another two hours.
B: Honey… don’t…
C: Hey man, the end of the line is over there.
C: No seriously, I was here first, and you can’t cut in line like this.
A: Says who?
C: I do!
A: So sue me!
C: Alright…that’s it….
A: …like I told you before, we just don’t have the resources to hire you an assistant.
B: I understand that, but the fact is we’re understaffed.
A: The timing is just not right. The economy is bad, and it’s too risky to take on new staff.
B: Yeah, I guess you’re right…. here’s an idea, what if we hire an intern? She would take some of the weight off my shoulders.
B: Yeah, you know, a recent graduate. She could give me a hand with some of these projects and we could keep our costs down.
A: That sounds reasonable… let me see what I can do.
A: Tony, I’d like to introduce you to your new assistant.
B: OK, great! Let’s meet her!
C: Hi, I’m Adam.
B: Oh… hi… I’m Tony…
