A: Good morning. How many bags do you want to check in?
B: Just two. Here.
A: This one weighs 30 kilos. The limit is 20 kilos. You’ll have to pay £5 a kilo for the other 10 kilos.
B: How much does the other one weigh?
A: That’s 10 kilos.
B: So that’s 40 kilos for two bags, so it’s OK.
A: No, it doesn’t work like that.
B: Well, can I take some things out of the heavy suitcase and put them in the light one?
A: Yes, but not here. You’ll have to go to the back of the queue.
B: Oh no! I’ll pay the £50!
Daughter: Hi, Dad.
Dad: Hello. How are you?
Daughter: Great. We’re having a really nice time. We went for a long walk today. Now we’re waiting for a disco this evening.
Dad: How are Mr Davies and Miss Jones?
Daughter: They’re OK. They had to phone two parents to collect their children because they were being difficult but they seem more relaxed than in lessons.
Dad: That’s good. Poor parents. That’s a long way to drive. They won’t be very happy. I hope we won’t have to do the same.
Daughter: Don’t worry, Dad. There’s no danger of that.
