So let’s get started!!
Too Much Crime.
Emma: I don't know what’s happening to the world!
Lauren: What happened? Why do you look so upset?
Emma: Crimes are increasing every day! What’s wrong with people?
Lauren: So many people live in adverse circumstances. Some people are not left with much choice.
Emma: Is that it?
Lauren: Also, sometimes lack of good parenting leads to crimes.
Emma: I guess people are just not ready to accept what they have, and the greed to have more leads them to illegal activities, even murder.
Lauren: You know what I think? Our society should take a stand against every crime. Then things would improve!
Double Check Everything.
Rosy: Wait! I have to go back upstairs.
Brian: Why? We’re already behind schedule.
Rosy: I have to check the terrace gate.
Brian: What’s the matter?
Rosy: Maybe I forgot to lock it.
Brian: No, you didn’t. I locked it myself before coming down.
Rosy: Are you sure?
Brian: Yes. I am sure.
Rosy: I just want to make sure the kids are safe when we aren’t around.
Brian: Don’t worry. I’ve checked everything. You’re just being over concerned.
The Fire Alarm.
Brian: Is this fire alarm system enough to protect the school premises from fire?
Emma: Yes, it is. These fire alarms have been installed in every wing of the school. As soon as they ring, the water sprinklers will start automatically.
Brian: Are there any safe exit points for students?
Emma: Yes. They’ll be directed to move to the north parking lot.
Brian: Alright. Are the students being trained to know what to do when the alarm goes off?
Emma: Absolutely! Every semester we conduct fire drills so the students know what to do in case of a fire.
Brian: That’s good!
Rosy: What are you watching?
Lauren: Our mayor’s statement on the crime rate in our state.
Rosy: What does he have to say about it?
Lauren: He says the crime rate has substantially reduced in the last couple of years.
Rosy: Really? Two crimes in one night two blocks away, and he says the crime rate is improving?
Lauren: Maybe he’s talking about his own neighborhood.
