Taking the biscuit

This is the transcription of an interview that was broadcast on an Open University sociology TV programme a few years ago. The interviewer was talking to a female production-line worker in a biscuit factory:

Interviewer: How long have you worked here?

Factory Worker: Since I left school. Probably about 15 years.

Interviewer: What do you do?

Factory Worker: I take packets of biscuits off the conveyor belt and put them into cardboard boxes.

Interviewer: Have you always done the same job?

Factory Worker: Yes.

Interviewer: Do you enjoy it?

Factory Worker: Oh yes, it’s great, everyone is so nice and friendly. We have a good laugh.

Interviewer: Really? Don’t you find it a bit boring?

Factory Worker: Oh no, sometimes they change the biscuits.
