Man: Hi young lady. How may I help you?

Girl: Well, . . . yeah. I’m looking for a Father’s Day gift.

Man: Okay. How about getting your father a new wallet?

Girl: Hmm. How much is that wallet?

Man: Uhh. . . which one?

Girl: The black one.

Man: Oh. It’s only $40.95.

Girl: Huh? That’s too expensive for me. Do you have a cheaper one?

Man: Hmm. How about this brown leather one?

Girl: Hmm . . . I don’t think my father will like the design on the outside, and it doesn’t have a place to put pictures. How much is it anyway?

Man: It’s $25.99.

Girl: Hmm. I don’t have that much money.

Man: Okay. How much money do you have to spend?

Girl: I’m not sure [money falling on the table]. Probably about ten dollars or so. I’ve been helping my mom around the house for the past week to earn some money. This is all I have.

Man: Hmm. How about this tie?

Girl: That’s real pretty, but the price tag says $13.99, and I know I don’t have that much money.

Man: Well, let’s just say the tie went on sale. How about $5.00. What do you say?

Girl: Oh, thanks. I’ll take it.
