A: Well, if it is not Nick!
B: Alex! It's nice to see you again!
A: You know Nick I've been meaning to call you for a long time.
B: Me, too. How have you been?
A: Fine. How about yourself?
B: Pretty good.
A: Tell me Nick. The last time I saw you, you were planning to apply for a new job?
B: Yes, I guess I was. But as it turned out, I changed my mind.
A: Oh, really? But if I remember correctly, you were intent on going to work for a large company. Whatever made you change your mind?
B: Well, it's a long story, and I do not want to bore you with all the details.
A: What has happened?
B: It turned out not to be a good idea.
A: Why? Big companies are very reliable.
B: You are quite right. But they require their applicants to have much experience of working as top managers. As you know I graduated from the institute three years ago.
A: What a pity!
B: And how about you? The last time we talked did not you tell me you were going to open your own real estate business?
A: That's right, I was. But things turned out differently.
B: But you seemed so determined to do that. What happened?
A: Well, it's so complicated, and I am sure you do not want to know all the details. But as it turned out I decided that opening my own real estate company just was not for me. So I decided to stay at my old job instead.
B: Well, a lot sure has happened since we last saw each other.
A: I'll say! You know we should try to stay in touch.
B: Yes, we should. Let's have lunch together sometime soon.
A: Good idea.
B: Take care now.
A: You too.
