Natalia: Is that the Office Shop catalogue?
Kei: Yeah, I’m in charge of furnishing the new offices on the second floor. They need everything – desks, file cabinets, bookcases – you name it.
Natalia: That sounds like fun. I love shopping for new furniture. Can I help?
Kei: Yes, definitely. I’ve picked out a few things already, but I’m having a hard time deciding among all of these office chairs.
Natalia: Get this one. They’re on casters and are fully adjustable.
Kei: Okay, what about desks? Everybody has a different idea about office desks.
Natalia: I like this one. It’s got a keyboard tray, file drawers, and space for lateral files. See?
Kei: All right, I guess that one is as good as any, but what about this one with a hutch?
Natalia: This desk has an optional hutch. If the new employees want a hutch, they can order one later.
Kei: Okay, last but not least, we need bookcases.
Natalia: These are solid wood and look sturdy. What do you think?
Kei: I think there’s one person who’s cut out for this job, and that person is not me!
