Robin: Let’s do a dialogue.
Maura: I don’t know what to do.
Robin: What’s the matter?
Maura: Well, I’ve been looking for a job for months everyday. I send my resume, but I just can’t get a job. I think I’m going to be unemployed all summer.
Robin: Hey, hey, hey, look on the bright side. At least while we’re in the office, we’re working away, you can sit outside and enjoy that beautiful weather.
Maura: You’re right. The weather has been nice lately.
Robin: Yeah, so look on the bright side. At least you can do that.
Maura: OK, great. So that was a great example of someone who is in a bad situation.
