(Marie, Cheryl, and Bob describe their worst and favorite vacations.)
Mr. Evans: Mr. Rashid! Welcome back. Come, tell me about your vacation.
Marie: What a terrible vacation Mr. Rashid had
Cheryl: Oh. You know, on my vacation last year someone stole my car. That was a horrible vacation.
Marie: I went on a cruise and there was an outbreak of illness. I was in my room for a week. That was a really bad vacation.
Bob: I went to Disney World and someone stole my map.
Marie: That's your worst vacation?
Bob: It took ten minutes to get another map.
Cheryl: All right, what was your favorite vacation?
Marie: I spent two weeks in the Caribbean last year, diving, snorkeling, and swimming with dolphins. It was amazing.
Cheryle: I went to China a few years ago. It was incredible. The people there were so friendly, and everyone wanted to practice their English with me.
Bob: I went to the beach and ate shrimp.
Marie: That's your best vacation?
Bob: I really like shrimp.
Marie: Bob, you need to go on more exciting vacations.
Bob: I don't like exciting vacations. In fact, I don't like to travel very much.
Marie: Then why do you work in a travel agency?
Bob: It's across the street from my apartment, so I don't have to travel far to go to work.
