How do they get to work?

Alison, Brenda and Carla usually have lunch together. When Alison was absent, the girl who walks to work went shopping with the secretary. When Brenda was off sick, the girl who lives with her sister had lunch with the girl who drives her own car to work. When Carla took a day off, the cashier and the girl who lives with her husband (her own husband’.) both had to work through their lunch breaks. Recently, the girl who lives alone had an argument with the receptionist and with the girl who comes to work by bus. If the secretary drives herself to work, who lives with whom, what are their jobs, and how do they get to work?
