“I think Mrs. Shannon is very polite with customers,” says Sherry.

“Yes, she is,” says Sasha. “But she is very chatty.”

“Yes, she likes to talk a lot,” says Sherry.

“Mr. Shore is polite, too,” says Sasha.

“Oh, yes,” says Sherry. “But he is forgetful.”

“That’s right,” says Sasha.

“Mr. Chester is easygoing,” says Sasha.

“Yes, but he is always late,” says Sherry.

“We can’t choose Mr. Marsh,” says Sasha. “He is not a team player.”

“You are right. He is a loner,” says Sherry.

“Who do we choose?” says Sasha.
