Ann: I’ve had it. Jim has got to go!

Milo: Go? He’s my best friend. I told him he could stay here until he got back on his feet. He’s not in your way, is he?

Ann: He doesn’t have to get in my way for me to know he’s in the house all the time. He snores so loudly I can hear him from our bedroom. He’s constantly hiccupping and wheezing, too.

Milo: Well, the guy can’t help it if he snores, hiccups, or wheezes.

Ann: But he can help snorting when he laughs and whistling all the time. And he constantly cracks his knuckles and it’s driving me up the wall.

Milo: Those are bad habits. You know it’s hard to break bad habits.

Ann: And what about his burping all through dinner and farting in the living room? That’s disgusting!

Milo: Okay, I’ll talk to him. I’m sure he’s not aware he’s doing most of these things. He’s always lived alone.

Ann: Really? I wonder why.
