Hey!! Guess what!!??
I don’t know….what?
I got tickets for Prince’s private show at Paisley Park!! We have to go!
What?! When is it???
Oh, shoot. I can’t go. I have a special student council meeting and we have to vote on our new treasurer.
Dangit. What a bummer.
Hey, where are the rest of the brownies?
They’re all gone. I just ate the last one.
What?! I just made them last night!
Well...what can I say? You snooze, you lose.
Ugh. I can’t even believe this.
Hey, do you want to go out to eat with us?
Where are you going?
Oh, we were just going to go get some burgers.
Eh, I think I’m going to venture out and try something new to eat.
I was thinking of trying that falafel place on 5th.
Oh, alright, cool.
You’ll have to let me know how it is.
If it’s good, we can all go some other time.
Hi, this is Talmidge McGouliger - I called yesterday to inquire about the shipping cost of an order for Jenkins Industries, and the person I talked to never got back to me.
I need to know that shipping cost as soon as possible.
Oh, yes, of course. Can you give me the order number?
Okay, can you just give me a minute to look that up for you?...
Okay...so the shipping cost should be $89.70.
Is there anything else I can do for you?
No, that’s it. Thank you.
You’re welcome. Have a nice day.
Did you try using the lawn mower again?
I sharpened the blades last night, so it should work much better now.
Yeah, I mowed the front yard this morning, and it works like a charm now.
Great! You can finish mowing the backyard after you’re done with work here then.
Did you look into getting tickets for the ghost tour?
Yeah, I found them.
You have to reserve a spot on the tour and pay in advance, but it’s not too expensive, so that’s good.
Nice! And how far in advance do you have to reserve a spot?
Oh, it’s not that bad - maybe a couple weeks?
At any rate, it’s better than we thought it would be.
Yeah, no kidding.
Oh man, now I’m excited!
Hey, where were you last night?
We saved a burrito for you.
Oh, I went with Kelly to her Latin dance class.
How was that??
I had no idea what I was doing.
I felt like a total fish out of water.
But it was pretty fun after I started to get the hang of it.
Cool. I’ve thought about going with her before too.
Maybe I’ll go with you guys next time.
Customer service, this is Kelly, how may I help you?
Yes, a few weeks ago I returned the vacuum cleaner I had bought from you, and you assured me that I would get a refund, but I still haven’t gotten my money back.
Okay, sir, did you fill out the refund form and submit it?
Yes, I did, and I was told that the refund would only take a few days, but it’s been about three weeks now, and I still haven’t gotten the refund.
Okay, let me just look this up quickly.
What’s your name, sir?
Okay, Mr. Jenkins…..it looks like you did submit your refund form but it was never processed for some reason.
I’ll re-submit it, and you should get your refund within a few days.
Okay, thank you, Kelly.
No problem, Mr. Jenkins.
I hope you have a nice day.
You too. Bye.
I’m having problems with my mail.
Mine keeps getting delivered to one of my neighbors and I keep getting theirs.
Ahh, yeah. We’ve been having a lot of problems like that lately - something to do with our trainee.
It’s getting sorted out though, I promise.
If it keeps happening, just let us know.
Okay, thank you.
So we’re getting a new team member, right?
Yeah, he starts next week.
Have you met him?
Yeah, he seems very nice.
He’s shy, but you just have to get to know him a little bit, I think.
And he’s supposed to be one of the best cryptologists out there right now.
Yeah, that’s what everyone has been saying.
Yeah, we’re lucky to have him on our team.
