M: What about your trip to the town?
W: Couldn't be worse. Our car was stuck in the mud. No matter how hard we pushed it, it just wouldn't move.
M: I heard your laptop was stolen at the parking lot.
W: Yes, I am not having much luck these days. I was late for work that day because of the traffic, and I forgot to lock my car.
W: Hey, Jack, do you want another sandwich?
M: No, thanks. But I don't mind having another chocolate cake.
W: This is certainly a nice place, Mr. Taylor. How do you go to work every day?
M: Well, there's a bus stop just around the corner. But I usually walk to work.
M: So, Nancy, how was your weekend?
W: Excellent. I was at the bookstore the whole Sunday.And I picked up two books. Take a look.
M: Officer, my roommate Dick Martin has been missing for three days.
W: Please give me his physical description.
M: He is 1.70 meters tall and weighs around sixty kilograms. He comes from Scotland.
W: What was he wearing when you last saw him?
M: He was wearing a white shirt and brown pants. I guess this photo taken from him can be a great help for your searching work.
W: OK, we'll keep in touch.
W: Hi, Customer Service Desk.
M: Good morning. I bought this computer here a few months ago. It doesn't work now. Can I return it or get it fixed?
W: When did you buy it from our store?
M: Four months ago.
W: I'm sorry.You can't return it because too many days have passed since you bought it.
M: But the direction book says I will get a one-year repair service.
W: Yes, I know.After three months, you need to call the company that made the computer.
M: Okay, I'll call the Customer Service Office of the company.
M: Look at Johnny sitting there, doing nothing.
W: I decided to let him use my iPad for two hours while I cooked dinner.
M: You know, we shouldn't let him play video games for hours at a time.
W: I know, but I just needed a little peace and quiet.
M: When you were his age, what did you do all day?
W: Oh, when I was about five, I was outside playing with my friends. We climbed trees, and flew kites, and caught the frogs.
M: Sounds fun. Don't you think Johnny should do those things, too?
W: Hmm...You're absolutely right.
M: Johnny! Hand over that iPad and go wash your hands. Let's enjoy this beautiful day.
W: How can I lose weight, Mr. Brown? I seem to get fatter when I just look at food.
M: Well, Jenny. It depends on how much you eat, the type of food you eat, and when you eat your meals.
W: I never eat breakfast though.
M: That's a big mistake; you should always have a good breakfast. You will not run your car without fuel, and yet you expect your body to work without food.
W: I never thought about it that way. Oh, Doctor, I feel so foolish.
M: You should eat more vegetables and fruit. Low-fat foods are chicken without the skin, and fish.Don't eat pork. It will make you fat.
W: I know, Doctor, thank you so much. I should also go to the gym tomorrow evening. Oh, I have to go. I almost forget that I have a meeting at 10 am.
M: Boys and girls, this is Headmaster Stanley with a special request about the dining hall. Our school is participating in the Green World Contest. We are looking for ways to help the environment, and we have decided to make some changes in the way we do food service. First, we will stop using wooden chopsticks. All our chopsticks will be reused from now on, so please don't throw them in the trash cans. Another change will be to reduce the amount of wasted food. Food requires water and energy to produce and bring to the market, so please take smaller amounts, and return for more if you are hungry. The third change is the paper cups. No more paper cups — just drink from your own water glass, please. These small changes will help reduce our damage to the earth. We will save resources and reduce waste. And our school can win the contest if we all work together.
