One possible version:
Different countries adopt different tolerance towards one’s lateness. Actually, some people are late not deliberately but because they misunderstand others’ opinions or pay too much attention to details.
As we all know, frequent lateness will have negative effects on one’s daily life. On the one hand, unpunctual people tend to leave a bad impression on those who have made the appointment with them. Others usually regard being punctual as a sign of keeping the promise. On the other hand, lateness sometimes brings about much trouble in solving urgent problems.
As for those who are unintentionally late, like Johnson and Joanna, I have two suggestions as follows. First, whenever you make appointments with others, make sure you have understood all the details and try to get there a few minutes before the appointed time. Second, make good preparations for the appointments but never become too particular about every detail.
W: Excuse me, sir. Do you need help finding a book?
M: No. Actually, I’m looking for a pay phone. (1) I need to make a phone call but I’m not getting any reception on my iPhone.
W: Excuse me. Can you tell me where I can get a snack around here, please?
M: Certainly. At Simon’s Snack Bar. (2) It’s the nearest one. It’s down the street on the right, next to a movie theater.
W: Can I get you to fill out this part here, where it asks for your medical history? It’s a very important part of your application.
M: Really? I thought I filled that part out already.
W: No problem. Just fill out a new one. (3)
M: What time are your parents arriving for dinner? I have to finish up here at work, so I might be half an hour late or so.
W: That’s OK. It’s just 7:00 now. (4) We can eat after we watch TV for a while. Just make sure you’re here before 8:00.
M: Are you carrying any fresh fruit, vegetables or meat?
W: Yes, I have a basket of tropical fruit I’m taking as a gift for a friend.
M: Sorry, madam, but it’s illegal to bring fresh fruit into the country. Please open your carry-on. (5)
M: Coach? (6) Why did you take me out? I want to play, and we’re winning the game because of me.
W: Yes, you are playing well. However, you need to pass the ball more. The other players need to have a chance as well, you know.
M: But my mother is watching, and I want to show her how good a player I am.
W: There are many parents in this gym, and they all want to see their children do well.
M: Yeah, but isn’t the point of the game to win?
W: This is a team game, George. You can’t win by yourself. (7)
W: Hello, thanks for calling Seagull’s Restaurant. How can I help you?
M: I’d like to make a reservation for around 8:00 tonight, for a party of five. (8)
W: I’m sorry, we only have tables for four people at the moment.
M: Oh! Can’t you just put two tables together?
W: I’m sorry, sir. But you need to have at least seven people to do that. Normally, we could help you, but it’s a Saturday and the big game is on.
M: Oh, I forgot about that.
W: You should try calling our bar downstairs. They have tables for five, (9) although they have a different menu.
M: OK, thanks. Can you give me their telephone number?
W: Certainly. One moment…
W: Do you have any time this afternoon, Dave? I need help with my essay that’s due tomorrow. (10) It’s almost the end of the term, and this paper counts for half of my grade.
M: Sure. What do you need help with? (11)
W: Well, I don’t know how to write the last part of my paper. (11)
M: You mean a conclusion?
W: Yeah. I’ve been working on it for a couple days. It just seems like it’s supposed to mention everything I just wrote about.
M: Well, that’s true. But you also need to give your readers something they will remember.
W: But if you read my paper, shouldn’t you know what my thoughts are?
M: Yes, but a conclusion helps your readers understand what is most important.
W: Will you read what I have so far and tell me if I’m on the right track? (12)
M: Sure. (12)
M: The World Cup this year has been really exciting. Who are you cheering for?
W: Well, I cheer for England when my parents are around. (13) But I secretly want Portugal to win.
M: Probably because you like Cristiano Ronaldo. Is that the only player you know?
W: Yeah, pretty much.
M: Well, do you think Portugal is going to beat Spain tonight?
W: I hope so. Although Spain hasn’t lost a single game yet, and Portugal has been playing pretty badly so far. (14)
M: Maybe Ronaldo will score three goals, and they will go to the championship match.
W: I think there’s a better chance of him marrying me, to be honest.
M: I agree with you, but crazy things can happen! Spain thinks they’re the best in the world. They’re way too confident. That’s often when teams end up losing. (15)
W: Maybe you’re right, but my money is still on Spain. Would you care to place a little bet on the game? Say, 20 dollars? (16)
M: Whoa, I don’t want to take that much money from a friend! How about half that amount? (16)
W: Deal. (16)
We’re here at Westfield Farms Annual Pumpkin Carving Festival. And as you can see, we have 700 participants of all different ages this year. (17) So it’s not just for the kids. Unlike last year where there was one grand prize winner, this year they have added a couple prizes, (18) including “The Great Pumpkin”, which goes to the person who has grown the largest pumpkin, and “Celebrity Pumpkin”, which is a jack-o-lantern carved to look like the face of a famous person they like. As you can imagine, there are a lot of works about Donald Trump this year! Of course, there is also the biggest prize of all: $10,000 to “The Grand Pumpkin”, (19) which is the best jack-o-lantern from all the competitors. It’s $20 per person to get into the festival, just like last year. But a lot of that money is going to charity, so it’s for a good cause. This is Sherry Watkins, live from Westfield Farms. (20)
