Oleg: Geez, look at that dinosaur.
Raquel: This is not a dinosaur. It’s a classic. It will never go out of style and it’s built to last.
Oleg: It’s an antique and belongs in a museum. You’ve got to get with it and get one of these.
Raquel: What’s that?
Oleg: It’s the latest model, with cutting edge design. It’s brand spanking new.
Raquel: That’s all right. This machine is tried-and-true and it never lets me down.
Oleg: Why don’t you take this for a test drive? It’ll be an eye-opening experience for you.
Raquel: No, thanks.
Oleg: You don’t know what you’re missing.
Raquel: That’s true, but I’m happy with my machine.
Oleg: Fine. I’m just trying to help you move with the times.
Raquel: Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll stick with what I know and love.
Oleg: It just goes to show there’s no accounting for taste.
