日期:2011-04-08 10:57

(单词翻译:单击)

I waved my hand to get the waiter’s attention.

Waiter: Yes?

Leslie: The check, please.

Waiter: Would you like any dessert, or some tea or coffee?

Leslie: No, just the check. Thanks.

Waiter: Here you are. I’ll ring that up for you when you’re ready.

Leslie: Thank you. Oh, there seems to be a mistake on our bill. We didn’t order this appetizer.

Waiter: Let me check this and I’ll be right back...Here you are. I’ve adjusted the check. I took off the appetizer.

Leslie: Thanks, but there still seems to be a problem. We had a two-for-one coupon, but we’ve been charged for both meals.

Waiter: I’m sorry, but you needed to present the coupon to me when you placed your order, not when you’ve finished your meal.

Leslie: That isn’t stated on the coupon. I don’t want to be a pain, but could I see the manager, please?

Waiter: I’ll see if she’s available...I talked to the manager and she said to make an exception in this case and to give you the discount.

Leslie: Okay, thanks.
