18. Giving an Excuse for Being Late to Work
A: Good morning, Peterson Industries.
B: Hello, Betty. This is Roger.
A: Hey, Roger. Where are you?
B: I am stuck on the 60 freeway. I'm going to be late for work.
A: Oh, no. Any traffic accident happened?
B: I really don't know, Betty. All I know is that traffic is crawling.
A: I will tell your supervisor you called in late.
B: That would be great, but I could tell him myself.
A: Well, normally that would be okay, but he's stuck in the same traffic jam.
B: Oh no! Really? Okay.
A: At least he'll know your excuse is true!
B: Yes. Thank you. See you soon.
