The supervisor at my work asked me the other day to help out one of the new employees. She needs some basic orientation on how to login to our network. So I made an appointment with her to come to my cubicle for a little training session.

Jeff: Hi, Lucy, how are you settling in?

Lucy: Just fine thanks. I appreciate you taking the time to help me out with this software. May I ask you what we will be covering today?

Jeff: Sure. Before I do that, could you tell me if you've worked with this program before? That will help me figure out how to proceed.

Lucy: I've done a little work with it, but not much.

Jeff: Well, it's a good idea to have the manual ready, since it can get a bit hairy. You should start by logging in with your username and password.

Lucy: How do I do that?

Jeff: You can just click on the button in the corner. Be sure to enter the password you created. You can write it down until you memorize it, but you might want to keep it in a safe place.

Lucy: Okay. Then what?

Jeff: Well, then just select the network you want to work with, and you're all set.

Lucy: Great, thanks for your help, Jeff. May I trouble you to show me how to print reports out from the program?

Jeff: Sure. I'll do what I can to help.
