Dialogue in Derby, Connecticut. June 15th, 2009. 4:00 p.m.


Bob: Hello! I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m a little late. Can you help me?
Mark: Sure, no problem! How may I help you?
Bob: When is the next train to Ansonia.
Mark: Hmm, I’m not too sure, but I think the next one leaves tomorrow at
8:00 pm.
Bob: What!? I can’t wait that long! What time is the next bus?
Mark: It should go by in about two hours. It leaves the bus station at
about 5:30 pm.
Bob: Well, I don’t know. Isn’t there any other option?
Mark: You could take a taxi...
Bob: What’s faster, the bus or the taxi?
Mark: The taxi, of course! All you have to do is to call and ask for a taxi
and it will come right away.
Bob: Well yes, you’re right, but which is the cheapest one?
Mark: The cheapest means of transportation I know of is the subway.
Bob: Yeah, but when have you ever seen a subway here in Connecticut?
Mark: You’re right. But anyways, why don’t you just go walking? It’s only
like 25 minutes away from here.
Bob: Hey, yeah. You’re absolutely right. Thanks for your help.
