A: Hello, this is Albert.
B: Hi. I'm Jack. You called about the room for rent. Are you still interested?
A: Yes, I am.
B: I was wondering if I could ask you a couple of questions.
B: I just want to be sure that we get along.
A: I agree with you 100 percent--we must get along.
B: Are you a party animal?
A: Oh, no. I'm a very quiet person.
B: Great! Next: Are you neat or are you a slob?
A: I'm a pretty neat person.
B: Are you a night owl or a day person?
A: Early to bed, early to rise.
B: Finally, do you smoke?
A: Actually, I quit smoking four years ago.
B: Excellent answers. Do you have any questions for me?
A: Just one: Is there a parking lot?
B: Unfortunately, you have to park in the street.
A: Well, I'm desperate. I'll take it anyway.
B: Great! Let me know when you're ready to move in.
A: I think it will be tomorrow if that's okay.
B: No problem. I'll be here all day tomorrow.
A: Hello. You've reached Albert.
B: I'm Jack. Are you still interested in renting a room?
A: Yes, very much so.
B: Would it be all right if I asked you some questions?
A: Fire away.
B: I just want to make sure that we are compatible.
A: That's a good idea. We need to get along.
B: Do you like to party?
A: I don't party, and I don't like people who do.
B: Great! Now, are you a neat person, or do you leave trash all over?
A: One of my mottoes is to clean as you go.
B: Do you sleep in or rise early?
A: I go to bed early, and I get up early.
B: And last, are you a smoker?
A: I can't stand cigarette smoke.
B: Excellent. Now, do you have any questions for me?
A: Only one. Where can I park my car?
B: I hate to tell you, but it's street parking.
A: I don't like it, but I need an apartment now, so I'll take it.
B: Great! Give me a call, and I'll help you move your stuff in.
A: Will tomorrow be okay with you?
B: That sounds good. I'll see you tomorrow.
A: Hi, this is Albert.
B: Hi, my name is Jack. You called about a room for rent. Are you still interested?
A: Yes, more than you know.
B: I don't mean to pry, but could I ask you a couple of questions?
A: Ask away.
B: I don't want us to be roommates who don't get along.
A: Yes, we must get along if we are going to be roommates.
B: Is partying one of your priorities?
A: I'm a student. I don't have time to party.
B: Very good. Now, do you clean up after yourself?
A: I clean up my own mess, and I expect others to do so, too.
B: What time do you usually hit the sack?
A: Occasionally, I stay up late if there's a big test the next day.
B: What about smoking?
A: If I ever get elected President, I will ban smoking nationwide.
B: Very good. Now, would you like to ask me anything?
A: Yes, I have one question. Do I have to park in the street?
B: I'm sorry. Yes, you have to park your car in the street.
A: I hate street parking, but I need the apartment now.
B: Very good. Just call me when you're ready to move your stuff over here.
A: How about if I come over tomorrow afternoon?
B: Just ring the doorbell. I'll be here all day.
A: Hello, Albert speaking.
B: This is Jack. Are you still interested in renting a room?
A: Oh, yes.
B: Would you mind answering a couple of questions?
A: No problem.
B: Since we might be roommates, I want to make sure there's no friction.
A: You are right. We need to be compatible.
B: Do you go out to clubs or bars a lot?
A: I have been to only one nightclub in my whole life.
B: Good. Now, do you expect others to pick up after you?
A: Occasionally I might slip up, but usually I'm clean and neat.
B: What kind of hours do you keep?
A: The early bird gets the worm.
B: I hope you're not a smoker.
A: I can smell a cigarette from a mile away. It makes me gag.
B: Your answers are great. Now, do you have a question or two for me?
A: Just one question. What's the parking situation?
B: This place allows only one parking space per apartment, so you'll have to park on the street.
A: I don't like it, but I guess I can live with it.
B: Okay, I think we'll be good roommates. Just call me when you're ready to move in.
A: I can move in by tomorrow afternoon.
B: That's fine. I was planning on being home tomorrow anyway.
A: Hello, Albert here.
B: Hi, Albert. I'm Jack. Are you still thinking about renting a room?
A: Yes, I need a room badly.
B: Can I ask you a few questions?
A: I'm an open book.
B: I want to make sure that we get along okay.
A: I'm with you. We both need to live in harmony.
B: Do you like to drink and party?
A: I hate noise, and I hate loud people.
B: Excellent. Now, do you leave a trail of trash wherever you go?
A: A place for everything, and everything in its place.
B: Do you keep normal hours?
A: I'm usually asleep before the 11 o'clock news.
B: You don't have a cigarette habit, do you?
A: Cigarette smoking is the dumbest habit in the world.
B: I like your answers. Now, are there any questions you'd like to ask me?
A: Yes, is the parking off street, or on street?
B: You're not going to like this. It's street parking only.
A: That figures, nothing is perfect. But, I'll take it.
B: You know, I think we're going to hit it off. Call me when you're coming over.
A: I can get all packed tonight and be there tomorrow.
B: Just come on over anytime. I'll be here the whole day.
