M: Switch seats?
W: Oh, yes. If you would be willing to I would be really appreciate it.
M: All right.
W: Oh, thank you.
M: Glad to do it.
W: Mr. Emerson. Here is a present for you from our corporation.
M: Oh, thank you. It’s very kind of you. Ah, it’s a porcelain.
W: I hope you like the design.
M: Yes, it’s lovely. I have been wanting something like this for a long time.
W: I am glad you like it.
M: Thanks ever so much.
W: We hope that we will co-operate pleasantly next time.
W: Hi, Bob. Thank you very much for taking me to the party last weekend. I learned a lot about our company and did make several friends.
M: You are welcome, Jane. I am very glad the party helps. I know it’s a great headache getting into a new environment.
W: Yeah, but things are gong on well now. I have friends in a few departments, and I really think they liked me at the party.
M: That’s nice. Remember to give me a ring if you need any help.
W: Thank you. I will.
M: I can’t tell you how sorry I am, Lisa. I lost the letter you asked me to post for you.
W: You did?
M: Yes, I am terribly sorry. I hope my carelessness hasn’t brought you too much trouble.
W: Forget it John. It’s not a very important letter anyway.
M: Jane, would you listen to me for a moment? I come here to apologize for my rudeness yesterday. Would you forgive me?
W: Well, it’s not all your fault. I am to blame too. I shouldn’t have given you so much pressure.
M: No, it’s all my fault. I am so sorry.
W: Never mind. I know you were very upset then. I am sorry I shouted at you.
