  • Hi Wesley, I wanted to have a word with you.

  • I'd love to Cynthia. But, for now I really need to rush. Can we talk later?

  • But it’s kind of important and it wouldn’t take much of your time.

  • I understand. But, you know I'm too tied up at work. Today I have several appointments with new clients. I really can’t stay right now.

  • Sometimes I feel you don’t make time for me.

  • I'm sorry, honey. But I am on a tight schedule today. Well talk later.

  • Bruce, youve been working non-stop. Come on, let's take a coffee break.

  • Oh, I really can't afford taking a break today.

  • What’s keeping you so busy?

  • I need to submit this report before the end of the day and I still have a lot of data to analyze. I’m actually behind schedule.

  • I understand. But, you need to take some time out, too. You cannot stay on that computer forever.

  • I don't want to be the one who doesn’t finish his work on time.

  • Bruce, can you please come downstairs and help me unpack the boxes?

  • I’m sorry but I can't do it right now.

  • What?! What’s so important?

  • I’m about to get online with my boss.

  • Oh, another conference call? How long will it take?

  • Probably half an hour or so, darling.

  • He'll be giving me some instructions for the meeting with the Chinese investors.

  • Okay, take your time but do come down as soon as you are free, please.

  • Promise I will.

  • Hey Wesley. Will you be joining us later on, at the library?

  • Oh, I wish I could! Studying in group is always better. But I can’t join you. I have such a busy day today.

  • In fact, I’ll be going here and there all week long.

  • But the tests are next Monday. If you don’t start studying now...

  • I know, I Know. There’s so much to cover.

  • Yes, you should come. Even if you arrive late. At least you would be studying a little. It’s better than nothing.

  • You know what? Youre right! I read somewhere that short doses of study can be effective. Ok, I’ll meet you guys there.

  • Great! And don’t forget to bring your books and flashcards with you.

  • I really can’t stay right now.

  • Sometimes I feel you don’t make time for me.

  • I am on a tight schedule today. Well talk later.

  • I really can't afford taking a break today.

  • I’m actually behind schedule.

  • I’m sorry but I can't do it right now.
