Automated message: You have two new messages. Message number one, received today at 3.45 p.m.

Hi, it’s me. How’s it going? I guess you’re at work and you don’t have your phone on, right? First of all, thank you, THANK YOU for the birthday card and message. I received it this morning. That’s so nice of you. I’m organising a little party for my birthday. It’s nothing very big – only a few of my best and closest friends. That means you too! We’re going to have it at my cousin’s house. She lives in the countryside in a nice big house with a swimming pool. I’d love to see you there. It’s going to be this Friday. I’ll send you the instructions on how to get there later, OK? 

Anyway, have fun at work. Don’t work too hard, OK? Talk soon.


Automated message: You have two new messages. Message number two, received today at 5.15 p.m.

Aw, you’re still not answering your phone! OK, here are the instructions to get to my cousin’s house for the party. Are you going to take your car? If you take the car, drive straight on Forest Road until you get to the motorway. Drive past Brownsville and take exit 13A. That’s 13A. You drive down the road there and turn left. It’s the first big house on the right. OK? If you’re taking a bus, you can get the number 80 to Brownsville. Call me when you get there and somebody can pick you up in a car. I can’t wait. This is going to be so great!

Hi, everyone. I know you’re all busy so I’ll keep this briefing quick. I have some important information about a change in the management team. As you already know, our head of department, James Watson, is leaving his position at the end of this week. His replacement is starting at the end of the next month. In the meantime, we’ll continue with our projects as usual.

I have two more quick points. Firstly, there will be some improvements made to the staff car park next month for a few weeks. It will be closed during that time.

Don’t worry, we’ve found a solution. We can use the local church car park until our own one is ready. If you arrive before 8.30 a.m., please use our small car park on Brown Street, and if you arrive after that, you should go directly to the church car park. It’s only a five-minute walk away. But they need it in the evenings, so you have to leave before 6 p.m. Sorry about that – I know how much you all love working late!

The other thing I wanted to tell you about is that the canteen has now introduced a cashless payment system. So, you can’t use cash for payments any more. You can pay directly with your smartphone or you can pay using your company ID card. The total amount put on your company ID card comes off your salary at the end of each month.

OK. That’s it? Are there any questions?
