  • Eric, what happened? Why do you seem so low today?

  • I had a fight with Daisy last night.

  • Oh. That’s really sad. You guys should try to talk it over.

  • Yes, I've been trying to call her since morning but she is not picking up.

  • Come to my house this evening and we can talk it over. I’ll invite Daisy too.

  • Hey, did you hear what happened to Stan?

  • No, I did not. Is he okay?

  • Not exactly. He used to say he would take the new manager down. But truth is he was the one who got fired.

  • Oh, I told him many times. This manager won’t be taken down easily.

  • Yes, I know. But he’s so arrogant. I hope someone really takes him down one day.

  • Yeah, so do I.

  • Hey Karen, are we going inside this building?

  • Yes, Eric. I have some work here. I’m afraid you will have to put out your cigarette.

  • I think you should go alone. I’ll wait for you outside.

  • Why don’t you want to come inside?

  • I don’t want to put my cigarette out. You go on and I’ll just wait here.

  • You are unbelievable!

  • Do not sneak up on me like that. I just don’t like it.

  • What are you saying? I don’t sneak up on people.

  • Don’t try to make a fool out of me. I know you were sneaking on me.

  • You thought I wouldn't see it but you forgot about that mirror over there!

  • Okay, you got me, I confess. I’m sorry.

  • You guys should try to talk it over.

  • Come to my house this evening and we can talk it over.
