putting you through to Mr Kola now.

Melita Fagurian on your staff.
MR KOLA: Yes?
MR BALLITO: Well, she's applied for a job here as Junior Secretary and we'd
like to give it to her. Could you give her a reference?
MR KOLA: Yes, it will be a pleasure. What would you like to know about her?
MR BALLITO: How long has she been working at the Bank?
MR KOLA: Oh, I'll have to look that up in her personal file. What else do you
want to know?
MR BALLITO: I'd like a report on her attendance and her punctuality. Tell me
about her character and anything else you think I should know.
MR KOLA: Well, Mr Ballito, as I said, I'll have to look all that up in her
personal file. Do you want the reference in writing or can I ring you back in
half an hour?
MR BALLITO: Oh, you can ring me back. If I'm not in the office, my secretary
Opal will take a message.
MR KOLA: Right, Mr Ballito. I'll ring you back in half an hour.
