I needed to schedule a meeting for the three departments involved in a new project. I called each one to find a date that would work for all three of us.

Bruno: So, Nicola, would the day after tomorrow work for you?

Nicola: No, I'll be out of the office all day. Could we do it early next week or a week from today?

Bruno: I was hoping to schedule it as soon as possible. How about the end of this week?

Nicola: Well, I think that's okay. We could meet late Thursday or Friday. I'm free Thursday from 3 to 5, and on Friday from 10 to 1.

Bruno: Okay. Let me talk to Kumi and I'll let you know.

Bruno: Hi Kumi, can you make a meeting with Nicola and me this Thursday or Friday?

Kumi: Oh, I wish I could but I'll be in the Boise office starting tomorrow. How about the following week?

Bruno: I think we can do it early next week. Would Monday at 10 work for you?

Kumi: Sure, that's fine.

Bruno: Let me check with Nicola. You know, I think this would be much easier on email. I'll send Nicola a note and we can confirm on email.

Kumi: Okay, I'll look for your email.

You know, sometimes, I think scheduling a meeting is the hardest part of actually having a meeting!
