Sample Dialog:

Sa Call Center

Mona:  Garnet, saang call center ka nga ulit pumapasok? Nakalimutan ko kasi.
Garnet:  Sa pinakabagong E-Telecare Global Solutions sa Mandaluyong.
Mona:  Ako sa E-Telecare din pero sa Makati.
Garnet:  Kakasimula ko lang noong isang linggo. Napag-alaman kong ang E-Telecare pala ang pinakamalaking call center sa Pilipinas.
Mona:  Oo, nasa higit na sampung libong tauhan na ang mga naninilbihan dito sa Pilipinas. At mayroon pang mga tatlong libong katao ang naka-base sa Arizona, North Dakota, South Dakota at New Mexico.
Garnet:  Paano nga pala lumaki ng ganito ang call center?
Mona:  Sabi ng aming TL (team leader), lumago ang E-Telecare dahil sa katatapos na IPO (Initial Public Offering) ng American Depository shares sa NASDAQ Stock Exchange sa halagang labintatlong dolyar bawat share.
Garnet:  Ganoon ba? Alam mo rin ba kung magkano na ang kabuuang kapital nito?
Mona:  Ang kinita ng IPO ay labindalawang milyong dolyar kung kaya naman umakyat na ang kapital sa kabuuang halagang limang daan at tatlumpung dolyar. Anong masasabi mo roon?
Garnet:  Kaya naman pala nakakagulat din ang buwanang pasahod dito na mas mataas kaysa sa karaniwang ibinibigay sa ibang kompanya. Mapalad tayo Mona.
