Woman : What terrible weather. Have you ever seen such thick fog ? I've heard it's caused a lot of problems on the highway.

Man : I know. As a matter of fact. Jack just called and said he'll be at least an hour late because the traffic is so heavy.

Woman : He should have taken the train. I did, and I wasn't delayed even one minute.

Man : Lucky you. I hope it clears up soon because I have to get to a 2 : 00 meeting.

How late will he be ?
Man : Can you tell me how to get to the post office, please ?

Woman : Certainly. Just go straight ahead for five blocks, turn left, go down two blocks and you'll see it on the corner, next to the bank.

Man : Thank you. Do you know if there's any parking near there ?

Woman : Oh, yes. The library parking lot is just across the street. You can usually find a space there, and it's free.

What does the woman say about the library ?
Man : Listen. You won't believe this. I just found out I've been chosen employee of the year.

Woman : How exciting! You deserve it. I suppose you'll have to give a speech at the annual banquet.

Man : Yes, I'm a little nervous about that part of it. I guess I'll have to do some preparation for it.

Woman : You'd better get started soon. It's already September and the banquet is next month. I could help you write your speech if you'd like.

What does the woman offer to do ?
Woman : It looks like this restaurant is closed. What'll we do ? I am so hungry !

Man : I know a café that stays open late. I can call and check if they're still open. If you don't mind ordering sandwiches, that is. That's all they serve.

Woman : I don't mind sandwiches. I guess we shouldn't have waited till so late to eat. Oh, and i forgot my wallet, too. Did you bring a credit card ?

Man : No, but don't worry. I'll pay. I have plenty of cash on me. It's only 10 : 00. We should be able to find some place that's open.

What time is it now ?
Woman : I'm looking for a business suit, but not for myself. I want it for a birthday present for my husband.

Man : These summer suits just arrived. The material is very fine, and look at these colors - white, beige . . .

Woman : This light blue is very nice, but i need another color, something more serious. It's for a conference with his boss. This black suit is just what I want.

Man : Yes, it's a very fine suit and real bargain, too, at only five hundred dollars. You couldn't get a suit like this for less than that.
