A: "Hey Jack. How is your day going?"
B: "Just finishing the project. Other than that, not much. How about you?"
A: "I'm just about finished for the day. I have one more task to do, but I wanted to take a break first."
B: "Did you have to work with Jake on that project?"
A: "Unfortunately, yes."
B: "Oh my gosh. I feel so sorry for you."
A: "Don't remind me. I'm just glad it's over."
B: "Yeah. I remember when I worked on the data conversion tool with him. Everything he did, I had to re-do. It would have been faster if I did it alone."
A: "That's exactly what happened to me. It took me longer because I had to re-do everything he did. That really pissed me off."
B: "Next time the manager wants me to do a project with him, I'm going to tell him that I will do it myself."
A: "That's a good idea. Hopefully, the manager will realize how useless he is."
B: "Exactly. If you're not busy, you can do my work."
A: "Ha ha. I got enough to do."
B: "Yeah. I'm just kidding."
A: "Aright dude. I better finish my work. I'll talk to you later."

A: "Hey Jordan, did you go to the team meeting this morning?"
B: "Yeah. The manager presented a new project to us that we'll have to do."
A: "Damn it. I shouldn't have missed that meeting, but I was stuck in another meeting. What else did you guys talk about?"
B: "Everything else was the same. We talked about progress of current assignments, due dates, about hiring another worker, that's all."
A: "What's the new project about?"
B: "It's hard to explain. She sent out mail to all of us. You can just review the document she sent out."
A: "Ok. I'll do that."

A: "Hey Bob, do you have a few minutes?"
B: "Sure. What's up?"
A: "I'm having problems with my computer. I don't know what's wrong with it."
B: "Let's go take a look at it. Oh. Here is the problem. You have a boot sector virus. Install the anti-virus software. That should take care of the problem."
A: "Great thanks.

A: "How is your day going?"
B: "The same as usual. How about you?"
A: "Me too. I'm getting sick of work man."
B: "I'm already past that stage."
A: "What are you still doing here then?"
B: "It pays the bills."
A: "Why don't you find another job?"
B: "Well, I thought about it, but if I put in two more years, then I get a good pension. I can't give that up. Anyway, this job is boring, but at least it's easy."
A: "Well, you've been here for eight years. You have some things to stay for. I've only been here for two years. I can't see myself doing this for another two years. I want to gain more experience in other areas."
B: "Have you brought this up to the boss? Maybe you can go into management."
A: "They usually want a person with an MBA degree or a person willing to put in 80 hours a week."
B: "That's what it takes man. Either this or that."
A: "Yeah. I better think about what I want. Why didn't you go into management?"
B: "It would have taken too much time. I have a family that I want to spend time with, so it wasn't worth it for me. But you're single. You can put in a few good years and put yourself in a good position before thinking about settling down."
A: "You have a point. I'll see what my options are. Hopefully the manager will help me out with my career."
B: "She's pretty cool about that. Just be honest with her and she'll show you some doors."
A: "That sounds good. Thanks for the advice."
B: "No problem. Good luck."
