19. The phone rang. Wally asked, "How's the Big Apple?" Eugene said, "I love it!" Wally asked, "Have you found a job?" Eugene said, "Of course I haven't found a job. I only got here a month ago." Wally said, "You'd better hurry up. Your savings will run out before you know it." Eugene said, "I'm looking. But it's tough. Thousands of people are looking for work. But there aren't thousands of good jobs." Wally said, "You should try Craigslist. Many people in New York want to improve their English. They'll pay you good money. Look on Craigslist. See what other English tutors are charging. Charge a few dollars less." Eugene said, "That's a good idea. But should I charge less, or more? If I charge less, they might think I'm not so good. If I charge more, they might think I'm the best." Wally said, "Good question. Put two ads on Craigslist." 1.7
