How can I help you?
I seem to have lost my train ticket.
What’s your destination?
I’m supposed to be going to London.
OK. When is your train supposed to leave?
It’s supposed to leave in 30 minutes.
Oh, dear. What’s your last name, please?
And your passport number?
Let me see…It doesn’t look like we have any information about your ticket here.
Is there anything you can do for me? If I don’t make it to London in time, my wife is going go kill me.
Oh dear. I’m really sorry, sir. But you don’t have any proof of purchase. You’ll simply have to purchase another ticket.
How much is that going to cost me?
It depends on how you want to travel. If you want a soft sleeper, it will cost 90 pounds; if you want a hard seat, it will only cost 50 pounds.
I can’t possibly travel on a hard seat for 8 hour!
Looks like you might like the soft sleeper then.
Yes, fine. Let me see how much money I have I my wallet.
Where’s my wallet? Someone has stolen my wallet!
Perhaps it’s in your other pocket.
You’re right. It is.
