You're here late
This is still the same day as in the previous dialogues. Ted is
still at the office, working over-time. Barbara, who forgot her
bag, comes in and discovers Ted working.
good contrast to:
put one's heart and soul into:
lose out to:
Barbara: Hey, Ted! You're here
late. What are you doing?
Ted: Oh, Barbara, hey. I've got
a lot of work here to do for the new Gleason and Wabash accounts.
There's a big report I have to have done for my meeting with the
guy from Wabash tomorrow.
Barbara: Right, right. That sucks,
Ted: Yeah, I guess. So what are
you doing here?
Barbara: I forgot my bag. Do you
like it? It's a Hermes. I saw it last week over at Sullivan's,
and it was half price. So I said to Cindy, 'Should I?' And she's
all like, 'Oh, go ahead.' So I splurged and bought it.
Ted: Yeah, that's great, Barbara,
but I've really got to keep working.
Barbara: Suit yourself…Hey, I'm
going for a couple of drinks to celebrate my new job with Grace
and a few others. You wanna come?
Ted: Nah, as I said, I've really
got to keep working.
Barbara: Alright. See you tomorrow.
Be on time. Hah. Hah. Hah.
Ted: Yeah, see you, Barbara.
