EnglishLingQ - Eating Out, Part 13

Peter: I have been at my company about 5 years.

I have been promoted twice during that period.

Mary: Do you have to work long hours?

Peter: Yes. I have to work a long day. I start at 7 in the morning and often do not leave the office before 7 at night.

Mary: You must be very busy. What do you do?

Peter: I am in the field of financial management. We look after people’s money for them.

Mary: Even though I do not like my job, I do not think I would like to work 12 hours a day.

Peter: To be successful you have to work hard. You get out what you put in, as they say.

Mary: Even if you paid me twice as much money as I make now, I would not want to work that hard. I could never work that hard.

Peter: Well, I guess you have to decide whether you want more responsibility or not.

Mary: I know. I really need to think about my future. I need to decide what I really want in life.
