41. Stranded at School (B)


Mike: Maria?
Maria: Hey Mike. You are never going to believe what just happen to me.
Mike: You won the lottery?
Maria: No, not that. It's something bad.
Mike: Oh no, Maria. Are you alright?
Maria: Yes, I'm fine. It's my car, Mike. It finally broke down on me. I'm stranded here at school.
Mike: Are you serious? Did you try turning it on?
Maria: Of course, I did! How else do you think I found out it was broken. Listen, can you pick me up right now?
Mike: Alright, I'll leave work early. Let me just tell my boss.
Maria: Mike, what about the car? I can't just leave it here. It'll get towed.
Mike: I have an idea! I'll bring Doug along with me to pick you up.
Maria: How is bringing Doug going to help the situation?

Mike: He's knowledgeable about cars. He'll know what to do.
Maria: Alright, I hope you're right. I'll be here waiting. Try not to take so long.
Mike: Alright, honey. Just sit tight. We'll be there before you know it.
(Thirty minutes later, Mike and Doug arrive at Maria's location. Doug takes a look at the car and fixes it.)
Mike: You see, Maria. I told you Doug would help.
Maria: Wow, you were right. Thank you, Doug. I didn't know you knew how to fix cars.
Doug: Don't mention it, Maria. Ever since I was a teenager, I've fixed cars.
Mike: Thanks, Doug. You're a life safer. Why don't the three of us go bowling to celebrate?
Maria: Alright.
Doug: Sure.
