Shop assistant: Unfortunately this is the last one in our new collection.

Ann: Oh, no! What am I gonna do?

True friends

Joe: Hey! Enjoying yourselves?

Mike: Yeah, thanks Joe. But what about you? Looks like you’ve got something on your mind.

Joe: Yeah, a sort of. But it’s my problem, not yours.

Jake: Come on, Joe. We’re friends, right? We’d like to help if we can.

Joe: OK. I owe someone quite a lot of money and it’s getting me down. I’ve already returned the most of it but I promised to give the rest this week… and I haven’t got it. And he’s gonna kill me.

Mike: Why don’t you just talk to the guy? Perhaps he’ll let you pay him next month. Don’t get your knickers in a knot until then.

Jake: Yeah – try that. You never know! I can come with you if you like.

Joe: Maybe you’re right.
