A:Yesterday I had a quarrel with my roommate. I’m really fed up with all this.
B:Tell me what seems to be the problem.
A:My roommate always brings a lot of friends from off-campus. They stay in the room until midnight, singing and talking, drinking and playing cards while I have no place for study. I even don’t have the quietness to sleep.
B:Did you ever talk to him about it?
A:Yes, I did. He promised me not to bring his friends to our bedroom any more, or if he has to, he should let them go before 10 0’clock.
B:Did he bring many people in yesterday evening?
A:That’s right. It really made my blood boil when he asked me to go to the library to study. I was coming to the end of my patience. So I shouted at his friends. They were all shocked at my anger and left at once.
B:So how did you start the quarrel?
A:He told me that I was interfering in his business. It’s too much for me.
B:OK. I understand your situation. I will consider arranging you to another bedroom.
A:That radio’s pretty loud. Could you turn it down, please?
B:Sorry. Was I disturbing you?
A:Yes. And something else, please don’t borrow my clothes without asking.
B:Sorry. I guess I wasn’t thinking. I won’t do it again.
A:I am really exhausted, you know, I have been working without the weekend for two weeks. My boss always asks us to work overtime.
B:Does your boss pay you for the over-time work?
A:No. But he provides free meals and sometimes gives us some small gifts. Many of us get very tired of this, and we’d rather have weekends than stay in the office.
B:He should know that this is against the Labor Law in our country. Legally, employees should get double pay if asked to do extra work during the weekend or on holidays.
A:We all know about that, but we have no choice. The chairman of the trade union says he is going to negotiate with the management.
B:I suggest that you go to the lawyers’ office to get some help.
A:That’s a good idea. I think we will soon come to a solution to the problem.
A:Good evening，this is housekeeping. May I help you?
B:Yes. This is room 207. There isn’t any hot water in my bath room. Can you send somebody here, and do something about it?
A:Yes,sir. We’ll be there shortly.
B:I am glad you are here! See if you can find the problem.
A:Everything is OK now.
B:Thank you for repairing it.
A:You are welcome. It’s our job to keep things runing smoothly.
