Friend asking for a favour
Amit: Yo roomie! Did I startle you? (Surprise)
Farah: Holy cow! Of course yes. You scared the hell out of me.
Amit: My bad! Hahaha (laughs) (Informal apology)
Farah: Not funny at all.
Amit: Okay! What are you doing?
Farah: I am reading a novel by Paulo Coelho. It’s rather gripping. (exciting)
Amit: That’s wonderful. Actually I came to ask you something. I am going to supermarket do you need anything?
Farah: No. Not really.
Amit: Are you sure?
Farah: Yeah. But could you do me a favour? (Asking for a favour)
Amit: No problem. What’s it?
Farah: Can you please pick up my clothes from dry cleaners?
Amit: Yeah, sure. No problem at all.
Farah: Thanks a lot. There is one more thing. Actually there are two.
Amit: Yeah. Go ahead.
Farah: Would you mind going to Street Food Café and getting me pasta?
Amit: Definitely. I will do that. What else?
Farah: Once you come back, could you lend me hand in moving the furniture as you promised?
Amit: I’m afraid I can’t. (Refusing a favour)
Farah: Oh, I guess I am asking too much.
Amit: Silly! I am just kidding. I will help you out. (Granting a favour)
Farah: Thanks so much.
Amit: Please don’t mention it. I must leave now otherwise I will be late.
Farah: See you soon.
