Katy: Hello Mr. Watson. I wanted to talk to you about something. Is this the right time?
Watson: Yes Katy. What is it?
Katy: Well, I haven't told you this before. But Ms. Annie has always been rude to me.
Watson: What happened? What makes you think that?
Katy: She’s always shouting at me no matter what. I mean, she’s always shouting for no reason.
Watson: Oh Katy. Annie’s been here for many years. That doesn’t sound like her. I’m sure there’s been some miscommunication.
Katy: I think you should talk to her and look into this matter. Its very hard to work this way.
Watson: Don't worry. I will talk to her about it.
Katy: Thank you Mr. Watson.
Jack: Come on man! Just try to be decent and courteous in this office.
Luke: What happened dude? What did I do?
Jack: I know you’ve been telling people some awful things. If you have a problem with me, just let me know. There’s no need to go behind my back.
Luke: Look, I think you are mistaken. I didn't say anything about you to anyone.
Jack: I overheard you yesterday. So there’s no point in denying it. If you want to get along with people in this office, just stop gossiping around.
Luke: This is embarrassing. I’m sorry. That won’t happen again.
Katy: I need some help from you Gerard.
Gerard: What is it?
Katy: I have an interview for my visa. Can you take care of the work here ‘til I’m back?
Gerard: I’m sorry Katy. I won't be able to help you this time.
Katy: Oh Gerard ! Don’t do this please. It’s really important.
Gerard: I know. But I’m always doing you favors and when I ask you for any, you don’t help me out. So not this time.
Katy: Oh I get it Gerard. You know what? Never mind!
Katy: Hey Jack. Have you met the new guy yet?
Jack: No. Why do you look so annoyed?
Katy: It’s Gerard. The new guy. He is just so annoying.
Jack: Why? What happened?
Katy: He’s just started here and he’s already flirting with me everywhere.
Jack: Is that so? Why don’t you tell our boss what’s going on?
Katy: Nah! I want to give him a chance so I gave him a fair warning first.
Jack: Then I guess you should avoid him for now.
Katy: Yeah. I’ll probably do that.
