A New Employee
Jill is a new employee at Office Station. She’s learning about her new responsibilities.
The manager, Mr. Taylor, says, “Jill, please file these papers, type this letter and put these boxes on the top shelf.”
Jill answers, “Let’s see if I understand. You want me to file these papers, type this letter and put these boxes on the shelf.”
“That’s right,” says Mr. Taylor.
Jill answers, “I’ll be happy to.”
Jill asks another employee for assistance.
Jill says,“Excuse me, Mary, I can’t reach the shelf. I don’t know where the ladder is.”
Mary says, “It’s in the storage room.”
Jill asks, “Can you show me where the storage room is?”
“I’ll take you there,” says Mary.
Jill says, “Thanks, Mary. There’s a lot to learn.”
“I’ll help you carry the ladder,” Mary says. “You can’t carry it by yourself.”
After the boxes are on the shelf, Jill thanks Mary for her help.
"I’m glad you helped me today,” Jill says.
