Narrator: Now listen to two students discussing the letter.
Man: So, Jane, what do you think of Eric's proposal?
Woman: I'm all for it.
Man: So you think it's true?
What he says about the problems with the way it's been done?
Woman: Well, yeah, I do. Take his first reason.
Like, I know you don't drive, but I do drive here every day,
so I need a place to park my car.
And remember last year when they decided to repair some of the parking lots?
Man: Oh, yeah, I remember that.
There was a lot of work going on, wasn't there? Starting in December.
Woman: Right. At least four lots were closed,
and that meant there weren't enough parking spots for students' and professors' cars.
I usually had to circle around,
looking for parking on one of the streets and then walk from the street all the way to my classes.
Man: That's annoying.
Woman: Yeah, and it happened to a lot of other people in my classes too.
People were always arriving late because of all the trouble they had parking.
Sometimes even my professors were late.
Woman: And also his second point. That makes sense, too.
I mean, for instance,
part of the reason those parking lot repairs last year took so long was because of the big snow storms.
They had to keep stopping,
sometimes for a week or two at a time, because of snow and ice on the ground.
Man: Yeah, I remember that, we had a bunch of big snowstorms right in a row last year.
Woman: Yeah, so with all that starting and stopping 'cause of the weather,
the job took them a lot longer to finish.
