Listen to two friends speaking at the bus stop and answer the questions below.
- Why is the girl angry?
2. Has the girl eaten?
3. Why did the boy go to Robert?
Boy: Hello, sorry I am late.
Girl: Do you know what time it is?
Boy: Yes, I know. I’ve said I am sorry.
Girl: But I’ve been waiting almost 2 hours. I rang your parents and they said you left ages ago. Where’ve you been?
Boy: Nowhere, the bus was late.
Girl: Look, I’ve been standing here at the bus stop all the time and there’ve been plenty of buses go past.
Boy: Look, I’ve said I am sorry, anyway we’d better hurry...
Girl: We’ve missed the beginning of the film. I don’t want to go to the film any more. And we were going for a meal before the film...
Boy: Well, let’s go and have a meal now.
Girl: No, thanks. You’ve spoilt the evening. And what’s that you are carrying? Boy: Cassettes, music cassettes, they are Robert’s. He let me borrow them for the weekend.
Girl: So that’s why you were late. You went to Robert’s home, didn’t you? Boy: Um, um, well I knew you wanted to listen to them so I went to get them as a surprise, it just took much longer than I thought it would.
Girl: Honestly, you could have collected them after the cinema.
Boy: Well, it seemed a good idea at that time — but the way it’s turned out has meant no meal, no film, no surprise!
