My mother said her colleagues always chip in to buy gifts to celebrate someone's birthday or when someone has a new baby.
A: How are you doing, Emily?
B: To be honest, I'm really fed up with work at the moment, I need a break.
A: Are you doing anything this weekend?
B: I have to work on Saturday all day. I really hate my job.
A: Are you available on Sunday?
B: Yes, it's my only day off until (next) Thursday.
A: Okay, well, my friends and I are planning on going to the beach on Sunday. We tend to leave around noon whenever we go anywhere. So you could still sleep in. Do you want to come with us?
B: That'd be fantastic! Which beach are you going to?
A: It's a quiet beach just about an hour outside of the city.
B: What should I bring with me?
A: We've got plenty of inflatables. But if you want to sit on a chair, you will have to bring your own sunlounger.
B: I love lazing around in a sun.
A: Do you like surfing?
B: I've actually never tried. Do you have a surfboard?
A: We've got a few. I can teach you how to surf on Sunday. It'll be fun.
B: I can't wait. It sounds like we're going to have a great time. How much money should I bring?
A: You'll just need roughly ten dollars for food and gas money. My friend is driving, so we usually all chip in a few dollars for gas money.
B: Okay, when and where should I meet you?
A: We'll pick you up at your place at noon. Be there or be square.
