ConversationID card: Narrator: Listen to a conversation between a student and an employee in the student Services Building. Student: Hi, I'm looking for the place where you can get a student ID card? Is this the right place? Employee: Yes, but you can't come into this building unless you have a student ID. Student: Yeah, but that's why I'm here. I need to get a new card. I lost mine. Employee: I'm sorry to hear that, but I can't let people in, uh, people who don't have ID's. You need to show university ID to get past security. Student: Well, I got in last month, when I got my ID card in the first place. I didn't have an ID then, what's the problem now? Employee: During the first two weeks, sure you could have. You had to come here to get your picture taken. But now, you know, registration is over. Student: What am I supposed to do? I can't even get into the dorms without my student ID. They sent me here. Employee: OK, let's send an email to find out. They'll answer right away. OK, here you go, we need to see your driver's license or some government issued ID, like a passport. Then I can let you in. Do you have a picture ID? Student: No, that's the problem, I lost my wallet and all my ID's were in it. Everything's gone! Employee: Well they won't give you a new ID without some sort of identification. How about your passport? Student: That's in my dorm room! But I can't get into that building either. This is just ... Employee: Wait, wait I'm going to check again. Do you happen to remember your ID number? Student: Sure, it's 224435. Employee: OK, the director of security says I can let you in, but you'll need to be escorted. Sorry, it's just one of our rules. Student: Oh, I don't care, whatever. Employee: Don't worry, they'll look at your records and verify it's you. Your original ID picture is in your computer records, and you'll get a new card right away. That should get you going! Student: Oh, thanks so much! Employee: I know, it must be terrible. Did you have much stuff in your wallet? Student: No, just a few dollars and my meal pass. And a party invitation. Employee: Your meal pass? No problem, you can get one of those too, just ask. Student: Phew! I was just starting to get hungry. Employee: OK, here comes your escort, you're all set. Student: You've been a big help, I really appreciate it. Really! Employee: Hey! I'm glad I was able to help you out! Student: You're glad!
