  • Neil voiceover: I've been working at the BBC

  • for a long time now. I've met lots of people.

  • And I sometimes bump into themand make

  • small talk. They call it small talk, but that

  • doesn't mean it's of little importance.

  • Neil: Hey Callum!

  • Callum: Hey! Hey Neil, how's it going? Haven't

  • seen you in ages

  • Neil: It's been a while.

  • Callum: Yeah, yeah. How's the kids? How's

  • the family?

  • Neil: Yeah, yeah. They're good, they're good.

  • And you… I heard you've got a new job.

  • Callum: Yes I have, yes. Started a few weeks

  • ago, yeah, yeah

  • Neil: SoWhat's the salary?

  • Callum: UmIt's OK. I've got to go

  • Neil: How much exactly? How much

  • do they pay you?

  • Callum: Umsome. Enough.

  • Neil: What's the figure?

  • Callum: Sorry, I've got to run. See ya.

  • Neil: OK. Nice to see you. Bye. See ya.

  • Neil voiceover: Let's see what our experts

  • have to say about that.

  • Sam: They seem to know each other; seem to

  • have a little bit of knowledge of each other.

  • Kee: Absolutely. He's obviously found out

  • that he's changed jobs.

  • Sam: Yeah, yeah. And he reacted really

  • nicely to it.

  • Kee: Yeah, absolutely. Until he decided to

  • ask how much he's earning.

  • Sam/Kee : Yeah. His salary.

  • Kee: Why would you not ask

  • that question?

  • Sam: It's just not a common question. It's

  • considered very rude to talk about money generally

  • Kee: It is, isn't it?

  • Sam : But specifically money you make.

  • Kee: Right.

  • Sam/Kee: It's just not done. No, you wouldn't

  • ask that, would you? Sam: So, what do

  • you think he could have

  • done instead?

  • Kee: I think the obvious question is, 'How

  • are you finding your new job?'

  • Sam: Yeah.

  • Kee: Are you enjoying it? You know, like,

  • what are your colleagues like?

  • Sam: Yeah

  • Kee: Or even just asking about the job itself.

  • 'What are you doing in your new job?' I think

  • that's a standard thing to do rather than

  • 'So, what's your salary?'

  • Sam: Exactly.

  • Kee: And I think most people will want to

  • talk about their new job.

  • Sam: Yeah definitely.

  • Kee: They'll want to tell the other person

  • about what they enjoy and what they're not

  • enjoying. But not this guy. Money.

  • Neil voiceover: Thanks for the tips, guys.

  • I'll try harder next time.
