Lisette: You’re the new kid on the block, aren’t you?

Danny: Yeah, it’s my first day.

Lisette: I’m Lisette.

Danny: I’m Danny. Nice to meet you.

Lisette: You’re lucky to be starting on the day shift. When I started working here umpteen years ago, I had to work the graveyard shift for two years before I got the day shift.

Danny: I guess I am lucky, but I wouldn’t mind working any shift, even double shifts, once I get up to speed. My wife and I are expecting our first child and we need to save up.

Lisette: Oh, yeah? Congratulations! Well, there are always people who want time off and need someone to cover for them. You can usually pick up extra hours and shifts that way. Sometimes, there’s even overtime, but the veteran workers get first dibs.

Danny: I can understand that. Well, if you ever need anybody to cover for you, just give me a shout.

Lisette: All right, I’ll keep it in mind. Maybe I can help you save up for a diaper or two.
