Man: Hi! Sorry I’m late.
Woman: It’s half past! You were supposed to be here at 9.00!
Man: Sorry. I took the wrong bus, and then we got stuck in traffic.
Woman: How did you take the wrong bus?
Man: I don’t take the bus every day, and I just got confused and got on the wrong one.
Woman: But I thought you drove to work?
Man: No, normally I cycle, but my bike’s in the shop at the moment.
Woman: Why? What’s wrong with it?
Man: I got a flat tire the other day.
Woman: Well, don’t worry about it. These things happen!
Man: Thanks. It won’t happen again.
Woman: Actually, I was thinking of cycling to work. How long does it take you?
Man: Normally it takes about 20 minutes, but it depends how fast you ride.
Woman: It’s a bit cold at the moment. Maybe I’ll wait a month or two…
