Ginger: I can’t believe it. You’re late again!

Fred: I got caught up at work. What are you so worked up about?

Ginger: I’ve had it up to here with your excuses. If you knew you were going to be late, why didn’t you call? We’ve been over this a hundred times.

Fred: There wasn’t time to call. And plus, what’s the big deal? I’m just a little late.

Ginger: A little late? You’re an hour late! You are so inconsiderate sometimes…[sigh]…You look tired.

Fred: Yeah, I am. Look, I’m late and I was inconsiderate. Let’s not let it ruin our evening.

Ginger: Okay, I’m sorry. Maybe I overreacted. I know you’ve been really busy at work.

Fred: I’m the one who’s sorry. I should have called. Will you let me make it up to you?

Ginger: You don’t have to. I shouldn’t nag.

Fred: You weren’t nagging. Let’s go get something to eat. We’ll both feel better with some food in our stomachs.

Ginger: Yeah, you’re right. Let’s go.
