‘Yes… I suppose…’
‘Look Carol, I’m doing you a big favour here – you don’t seem to realise…’

‘Ah, I’m not surprised… I get it now… so what will you do then sir?’
‘Oh we just won’t send anybody… sod him!…’
‘I’m sorry sir…’
‘No, no, Carol, I completely understand… in your place I wouldn’t go either…’
