front desk: yes, we have. what kind of room would you like?
tom: i'd like a suite with an ocean view, please.
front desk: no problem, sir.
tom: what is the price of the suite?
front desk: it is us$ 280 per night.
tom: it is a little high. i'm told that your hotel is offering discount now.
front desk: yes, but the offer ended yesterday. i'm sorry.
tom: oh, i see. then do you have anything less expensive?
front desk: no, sir. so far it is the least expensive suite for tomorrow night.
tom: ok, i will take it. by the way, does the price include breakfast?
front desk: yes, it does. now could i have your name, please?
tom: my name is tom zhang.
front desk: would you kindly spell it for me?
tom: that is t-o-m, z-h-a-n-g.
front desk: thank you, i got it. and how long do you expect to stay?
tom: about three days.
front desk: ok. our check-in time is after 1:00pm. and see you tomorrow.
front desk: thank you. see you.
at the lost-found office of deportment store
tom: excuse me, could you help me?
lost property clerk (l): yes. what seems to be the problem?
tom: well, i was wondering if anyone has turned in a passport.
l: i'm afraid not. have you lost your passport?
tom: i think so. i can't find it anywhere in my hotel room, and i remember the last place i used it yesterday was in this department store.
l: where exactly did you use your passport in the store?
tom: in the suit-dress department. i had to show it to pay for these dresses with my traveler's checks.
l: well, let me call the suit-dress department to see if they've found a passport.
(a minute later)
l: sorry-your passport's not been turned in there, either.
tom: then what shall i do?
l: you can fill in this lost property report, and i'll keep my eye out for it. those kinds of things usually turn up eventually, but i suggest you contact your embassy and tell them about your situation, so they can issue you a new passport in case it doesn't show up.
tom: you're right. do you have a pen?
l: here you are.
tom: oh, i seem to lose something every time i travel.
linda: i'm ready for a new hairdo. do you have any suggestions?
hairdresser: have you taken a look at any of the new styles lately?
linda: yes, i brought a magazine to show you. i like this one.
hairdresser: oh, that is pretty. do you want to keep your hair this long? or do you want to take it shorter? i think you would look cute with short hair. perhaps you should go even shorter than in the picture.
linda: i'll leave it up to you. like i said, i'm ready for a change.
hairdresser: ok. you should really think about getting highlights put in, too.
linda: do you think that would look good? i'm worried it will make my hair look unnatural.
hairdresser: no, it won't. the highlights are very subtle. we can do a little bit this time. if you like it, we can do more next time. otherwise, the highlights should grow out in about four weeks.
linda: ok, just do what you want. i count on you. by the way, how much do you charge for a shampoo and set?
hairdresser: forty dollars in total.
