<-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> How's it going, Mike?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> OK... I'm just trying to figure out what to do about this new bus schedule.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> New bus schedule?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. I take a bus from campus to my job downtown.
I work there Tuesday afternoons.
But the bus schedule changed.
The bus I was taking is leaving earlier now, and I can't get to it in time because I've got chemistry class then.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Huh. Yeah, they do change those bus schedules sometimes¡ªit's inconvenient.
So what're you gonna do?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, I talked to my boss,
and she said I could change my work hours and work at night instead.
I'd start late in the afternoon, and then work till around midnight.
And there is a bus that'd get me there on time.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> That sounds good. So you could just take a later bus to your job.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah,the only thing is, if I work late at night, I'll be really tired... and I have class early the next morning.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, but do you have any other choice?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, yeah—another option is just to ride my bike to work after chemistry.
I'd be able to get to work on time" so I could keep my same hours.
And it's not that far"it'd take about fifteen minutes.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Hmm... that might be nice, 'cause you'd get some exercise. But it'd be uncomfortable riding your bike on days when there's bad weather.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I'll have to think about it...
