Joanne: I do not want to go to class today.
Bruce: Why not?
Joanne: I do not like how the professor teaches.
Bruce: What is wrong with it?
Joanne: He only lectures and never has a discussion, and he gives too much homework.
Bruce: I do not mind him. I like his class.
Joanne: I do not like biology. I am an English major so I am not that interested in science.
Joanne: Where do you want to live when you build your house?
Bruce: I would live in the suburbs of New York. I hate the city.
Joanne: Why do you hate it?
Bruce: The city is very crowded and noisy and there's no greenery. Just buildings.
Joanne : I know what you mean. I love the greens too. I wish New York was less urbanized.
Bruce: I think I will move to the countryside. I am very fond of trees.
Bruce: I've had enough. I am quitting my job.
Joanne : Why are you quitting?
Bruce: I can't stand my boss any longer.
Joanne : Why can't you stand him?
Bruce: He puts too much pressure on me and I hate that.
Joanne : He's a bad boss then.
Bruce: He is. Everybody loathes him.
Joanne : Well quit your job. You'll find a better one.
Bruce: How is your sister doing?
Mark: She is doing well. She has a new boyfriend.
Bruce: Oh wow. How do you like him?
Mark: I don't like him at all.
Bruce: What is wrong with him?
Mark: He seems like a nice guy. I just do not like anyone dating my sister.
Bruce: Ha! Makes sense.
