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.
