Waitress: Hi, my name is Jean. You must be the new cook, right?
Cook: That’s right. I’m Jack. Nice to meet you.
Waitress: So when are you starting?2023
Cook: Tomorrow. I just came in to have a look around and discuss the menu with the boss. Have you been working here long?
Waitress: Two years. I like it here. Which shift are you taking?
Cook: Morning. Is it very busy?
Waitress: It gets busy around breakfast time and then mainly drinks until lunch break.
Cook: So you’re doing the morning shift too? Who else will be in?
Waitress: There’s Kate, but she’s just left. You’ll meet her tomorrow. She’s a nice girl.
Cook: It looks quite busy now, are you working overtime?
Waitress: Yes, I need some extra but I normally do the morning shift when I need to pick up the kids.
Cook: Sorry, I didn’t mean to keep you from your work.
Waitress: No problem, I’m taking a break now but I have to go back soon.
Cook: Boss said he might need someone to do weekend overtime. Do you think it’s worth it or does it get hectic on Saturdays?
Waitress: Not too bad compared to other days. I think it’s manageable.
Cook: Thanks for the info. My previous workplace was much smaller. I’ll see how it goes.
Waitress: I’m sure you’ll like it. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t a nice place. I’ve got to go now. See you tomorrow.
Cook: Nice talking to you, see you tomorrow.
