Woman: I'm visiting relatives in Chicago next week. How long do you think it would take me to get there by train?

Man: Oh, it's long trip - 16 hours at least. Why don't you take the plane? It would get you there in two hours.

Woman: I've done that too many times before, I'm afraid. I thought it would be more interesting to try the train this time.

Man: I think it's sounds like a waste of time. I always fly, myself. If I'm going on a business trip or on vacation, I always take a plane, even if it is expensive.

Why does the woman prefer the train to the plane?
Man: This package can't wait. I have to mail it today. Where's the local post office?

Woman: It's just two blocks from here, but it's closed for the holiday. You could try the main post office, but it's more than a mile from here.

Man: Maybe that's a bit far to walk. I suppose I could take the bus.

Woman: The buses are so slow on holidays, and the weather is getting bad. Take a taxi. I'll go find one for you.
