A: I'm checking out in about half an hour.
B: Whenever you're ready to check out, I'll be ready, sir.
A: Great! As you know however, the day in New York has hardly begun.
B: You're right. It's only 9:00 a.m.
A: Therefore, I think I'll explore New York some more. But I need to store my bags.
B: Sir, our storage facility is merely $5 an hour. You also need to leave a deposit.
A: My luggage isn't enough of a deposit?
B: Unfortunately, it isn't. VISA or MasterCard will suffice, though.
A: Let me put on my thinking cap for a moment.
B: Better hurry, sir. Remember you have to check out in less than half an hour.
A: I should tell you that I'm checking out in about 30 minutes.
B: I'm ready when you are, sir.
A: Very good! Now, it's still morning here in New York.
B: You are so right, sir. The clock just struck nine.
A: I'm going to spend some time exploring the city. What can I do with my luggage?
B: Sir, right here we have a storage site. Its only $5 an hour, but you need to leave a deposit.
A: A deposit? Isn't my luggage a deposit?
B: I'm sorry, sir, but it isn't. Your MasterCard or VISA will take care of things nicely.
A: Let me think about this.
B: Okay, sir. But don't take too long. You only have 30 minutes.
A: Do you know that I'm checking out in about 30 minutes?
B: Just say the word, sir.
A: Excellent! Now, as you know, the day has barely begun.
B: I agree. The dew is still on the grass.
A: I want to hit a few more places in the city, but I need a place to put my luggage.
B: We do have a storage space for your bags. There's a small charge, plus a deposit.
A: Leave a deposit? Isn't leaving the luggage enough of a deposit?
B: Regrettably, no. But simply present your VISA to cover your deposit.
A: I'll have to think about this for a second.
B: Okay, sir, but don't think too long. Your checkout is only 30 minutes away.
A: In case you didn't know, I'm checking out in half an hour.
B: That won't be a problem, sir.
A: That's good to hear. Now there's still a whole New York day ahead of me.
B: You're right, sir. Your whole day is still ahead of you.
A: I still have time to explore more of New York, but I need a place to secure my baggage.
B: We have a storage place here, but you have to leave a deposit.
A: A deposit, huh? I would think my baggage would be enough of a deposit.
B: Just present your VISA card, and there won't be any problems.
A: That deposit bothers me. Give me a minute.
B: Okay, sir, but remember how close it is to your checkout time.
A: I'll be checking out of the hotel in about 30 minutes.
B: Thirty minutes or 30 seconds, sir, it doesn't matter, I'm ready for you.
A: Great! As you know, however, the day in New York has hardly begun.
B: There's nothing like getting an early start, sir.
A: What can I do with my baggage while I visit a few more tourist spots?
B: You can leave your baggage in our storage space, with a deposit.
A: Isn't my baggage enough of a deposit?
B: I wish it was, but it isn't. They will still want a credit card.
A: It's always something, isn't it? Let me think about this for a second.
B: Don't forget that you have very little time, sir, before you have to check out.
