Linda: Nice to meet you too.
Alice: So, how do you like everything around here? Do you like the job so far?
Linda: Yeah, but there sure is a lot to learn.
Alice: Yeah, don’t get discouraged, though. When I first started working here, I found it tough too. It just gets easier, and, after a while, you’d say a monkey could do it.
Linda: That’s good to know. What exactly do you do here?

Linda: So, you like working here?
Alice: Yep, it’s pretty good. Well, I better get back to work now. Talk to you later.
