Listen to a conversation between two students.
Hi, Paul. How’s it going?
Whats a matter?
I have a job interview tomorrow morning. And I just realized I forgot my suit at my parents’ house.
I forgot to bring it back with me after my last visit home.
I have to wear a suit to the interview … it’s expected.
What are you gonna do?
Well, my roommate said I could borrow his suit for the interview if I want to. It’s a nice suit too.
But he’s bigger than you. Does his suit fit?
I tried the trousers and suit coat on.
They’re kinda big on me—a little baggy.
I mean, I don’t look great in his suit, but I look OK I think. I could wear it.
But you might not make such a great impression on the employer—wearing a suit that doesn’t fit you very well.
And I do want them to hire me.
It’d give me the chance to work in a professional law office right outta college.
Well, the stores’ll still be open for a couple hours tonight.
Why don’t you go buy a new suit?
I could. It’d be nice to have a new suit. Mine’s pretty old.
So why don’t you go for it?
Suits are expensive. And I’ve been saving to buy a bicycle for a long time ...
I’m so sick of having to get everywhere on foot.
I almost have enough money saved up.
If I buy a suit, I’ll have to wait a while to get the bike.
