3. A Software Upgrade
Brenda:
I’ve heard there’s a new version of that software program we use in our
accounting system.
Andrei:
The program we have works quite well.
Brenda:
I know, but this new one’s bound to be better. I think I’ll order it and
look it over.
Andrei:
We’re all quite used to this program.
Brenda:
It can’t hurt to check the new one out.
Andrei:
Why do you say that?

4. Whatever You Say
David:
So, Jagdish, what do you think of the revised plan?
Jagdish:
Very good, sir,
David:
You’ll need to get started on the rewrites.
Jagdish:
I’ll get a team on them straight away.
David:
Actually, there’s no one else I can spare right now.
Jagdish:
I see.
David:
I was hoping you could handle them yourself.
Jagdish:
Myself?
David:
Yes.
Jagdish:
I see.
