R: Good morning. Can I help you?
T: Good morning. I think there should be two rooms booked for us? In the
names of Tony Marshall and May Hunter.
R: Umm, just a moment.
T: We're attending the 'Sun, Sea and Sand' conference and exhibition.
R: Well sir, I'm afraid you have nothing booked. All we have left are two
small rooms at the front of the hotel. They will be a bit noisy I'm afraid, as
there is a pub opposite.
T: What? That's terrible! How did that happen? What do you want to do May?
Should we find somewhere else?
M: Well, I suppose we have no choice, really. It's too late to find another
hotel now. We'll just have to take them.
R: Right, so that's all booked now. We'll need you to sign a credit card
voucher in advance.
T: OK. Oh no, I can't seem to find my card. And where's my wallet?
M: Did you leave it somewhere? In the taxi?
T: Oh no! I think I did, I left my wallet in the taxi. I put it on the seat
when we got in. Oh what a disaster!
R: Careful sir, your briefcase!
T: Aaagh! All over the floor. All my papers!
R: Not to worry sir. We'll soon get them together.
T: Sorry, May. What a mess, oh what a mess! I'll have to phone the taxi
company to see if they found my wallet. Em, by the way, can you lend me some
change for the phone?
M: OK. Here you are.
