Rupi: I don’t think I’m cut out for this. How am I supposed to chaperone a class of students on a field trip?

Antonia: I thought you were gung-ho about being a chaperon for Nadia and the rest of her class on their trip to the children’s museum. That’s why you volunteered.

Rupi: I was, but then I started reading this material the school sent me to prepare for the trip. I have so many duties.

Antonia: Like what?

Rupi: I’m supposed to supervise the children all the time, escorting them to the restrooms and making sure they don’t misbehave. I don’t know what to do if the kids get out of hand.

Antonia: It’s not an overnight trip, just a morning at the museum.

Rupi: I know, but I’m responsible for their safety. What if I have to give first aid?

Antonia: The teacher will be there. He’ll know what to do in a real emergency.

Rupi: But how am I supposed to keep track of so many kids?

Antonia: Not all of the students are going on the trip, just the ones with signed permission slips.

Rupi: Even so, it’s a big responsibility. There are so many things that can go wrong.

Antonia: Do you want me to go in your place?

Rupi: Yes! No, I already told Nadia I’ll be going and she’s really excited. I don't want to disappoint her.

Antonia: You’ll be absolutely fine. I’m sure it won’t be like last time.

Rupi: Last time?

Antonia: Never mind. Forget I mentioned it.
