Merujo: (chuckles at trailer for "Borat" running on screen at check out)
Clerk: You know, a lot of people just don't think that movie was funny. They hate it.
Merujo: Oh, I thought it was hilarious. Wrong, but hilarious. I've been to Kazakhstan, so it makes it a little bit funnier for me.
Clerk: Wait - that's a real country?!?
Merujo: Uhhhh, yeaaaah. It is.
Clerk: Wow! What kind of work do you do to go to places like that?
Merujo: I used to work in the region. I have a degree in Russian Area Studies. (mumbling) Kremlinology? Soviet Studies? Whatever that means these days. I work for [really cool international non-profit with own theme music] now.
Clerk: WOW! You know, I want to do international work.
Merujo: That's great.
Clerk: Hey - is [really cool international non-profit with own theme music] hiring these days?
Merujo: Yeah, sure. You can always check the website and see if there are jobs that match your skills and experience.
Clerk: Oh, well, I've only worked in this video store. Are they hiring volunteers?
Merujo: Um... probably. Non-profits love good volunteers.
Clerk: How much do they pay volunteers?
Merujo: Ahhhh... they don't pay volunteers. Volunteers... well, they volunteer.
Clerk: Well, I couldn't volunteer unless they paid me. And it would have to match my work schedule here.
Merujo: Good luck with that!
