Greeting - Example Conversations

Let's look at several example conversations.  Then we can move on to the practice section.
 Person A: "Hi, my name is Steve.  It's nice to meet you."
 Person B: "I'm Jack.  It's a pleasure to meet you, Steve."
 Person A: "What do you do for a living Jack?"
 Person B: "I work at the bank."
 Person A: "What is your name?"
 Person B:  "Jackson."
 Person A: "What was that again?"
 Person A: "Hey John, how have you been?"
 Person B: "What a surprise.  I haven't seen you in a long time.  How have you been?"
 Person A: "I'm doing very well.  How about you?"
 Person B: "I finally have some free time.  I just finished taking a big examination, and I'm so relieved that I'm done with it."
 Person A: "Hi Nancy, what have you been up to?"
 Person B: "The same ole same ole."  Or, "The same as usual.  How about you?"
 Person A: "I'm pretty busy at work these days, but otherwise, everything is great."
 Person A: "Andy, it's been a long time, how are you man?"
 Person B: "What a surprise.  I haven't seen you in a long time.  How have you been?"
 Person A: "Do you come to this restaurant often?"
 Person B: "I've been here a couple of times, but I don't come on a regular basis."
