28. Making Promises

A: I know a lot of you have been working double shifts lately.

B: Yes, we have.

A: I am pleased to say that we have hired some help.

B: Alright! That's great. When do they start?

A: One person will start next week. The others will follow.

B: Only one? You promised more help last week.

A: I know I did, but the search has taken longer than I thought.

B: Oh, no. That's terrible.

A: Don't worry. I promise you all, I'll get some help.

B: Okay, thanks. These 16-hour days are killing us.

A: Help is on the way. I promise.

B: That's good enough for us.
