Josh: Hi, this is room number 365.
Becky: Yes, Sir. How can I help you?
Josh: I have an important meeting scheduled for tomorrow morning. Could I have a wake-up call at 5:30?
Becky: Certainly. You’ll get your wake-up call at 5:30 in the morning. Anything else I can help you with?
Josh: I’d like to get some coffee at a quarter to 6.
Becky: Alright. Is that all?
Josh: Yeah. That’ll be all for now.
Lucas: Can you call a taxi for me tomorrow morning?
Brooke: We surely can. Where do you want to go?
Lucas: I have a meeting at 7 at Boulevard Cafe. I hope it’s nearby.
Brooke: Yes. It’s a 15-minute drive from the hotel.
Lucas: Then I guess 6:30 would be fine. Book the taxi for 6:30 in the morning, please.
Brooke: Alright. The booking will be made then.
Lucas: Thank you. And please make sure the taxi arrives by 6:30, so there’s no delay.
Brooke: Don’t worry, we’ll take care of that.
Josh: Hello. Could you please send someone to pick up my laundry?
Lucas: Sure. Do you want me to send the laundry staff right now or later?
Josh: Well, I’m leaving for sightseeing in half an hour. So, it would be better if you send someone before that.
Lucas: Sure, Sir.
Josh: Good. When can I expect to get these clothes back? We’re leaving the day after tomorrow.
Lucas: It usually takes a day but you can ask the laundry staff for a better estimate.
Josh: Alright. Thank you.
Becky: Front desk. How can I help you?
Brooke: Hi, I’m in room 563. Would you mind sending someone to clean the room?
Becky: Sure. Would you like to get it cleaned now or at a specific time?
Brooke: Actually, we are leaving in 10 minutes. It’d be better to send someone after that.
Becky: Alright. Is there anything else I may help you with?
Brooke: No, that’ll be all. Thank you.
