<-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to a conversation between two students.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hey, Mary!How's your volunteer work going?
You still involved in that after-school program with the elementary school kids?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah! But I've got a problem.
I'm supposed to be driving a bunch of them to the zoo tomorrow.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> ...and I was supposed to rent a van for the trip.
But I waited too long to call the rental agency to reserve one.
And now it turns out they don't have any vans available for tomorrow.
I don't know what to do!
These kids will be really disappointed if their trip gets cancelled.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hmm, well, doesn't one of your friends here on campus have a car?
I mean, couldn't you borrow it for the day?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, probably, but I'd need to borrow two cars or there wouldn't be enough space for all the kids.
That's why I was going to rent the van.
And then I need to find somebody else to drive too.
I can't drive two cars by myself.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, that's true!
Well, I'm sure you can probably find a volunteer
or if you wanted to save yourself the trouble of hunting down the second driver, well... what about public transportation?
Check the bus schedule.I...I think there's a bus line that goes right past the zoo!
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah!That's a possibility.
But...I don't know.
it might be a real, [euphemistically] challenge supervising the kids on the bus.
Sometimes they are a handful when they get excited.
It's an option, though.
