A: Excuse me, but is this dress on sale?
B: The dress was on sale yesterday.
A: Are you sure? I'd be happy to pay the sale price today.
B: I'm so sorry, but rules are rules.
A: I'll just check out a few other stores.
B: I'm sorry I couldn't help you.
A: I need some flowers for my wife. It's her birthday.
B: Very well. We have some fresh red roses.
A: How much are the roses?
B: $20 per dozen.
A: That sounds like a good deal.
B: Yes, they're on sale today.
A: I'll take a dozen.
B: Splendid. Will there be anything else?
A: No, the roses will be fine.
B: I'm sure your wife will love them.
A: I want to find an old music box.
B: We have a great selection. What decade are you looking for?
A: Do you have anything made in the 1920s?
B: We have six.
A: Do any of them have dancing figures?
B: Actually, two of them have dancing figures.
A: That's fantastic. I think I like this one.
B: A good choice. I prefer that one myself.
A: Is there any warranty with this?
B: Oh, no, I'm afraid not. These things are just too old to guarantee anything.
A: I understand.
B: Even if they break down, they're still works of art.
A: Can you help me pick out a gift for my daughter?
B: She might like a laptop computer.
A: That sounds like a good idea.
B: Might I suggest a Mac?
A: How much?
B: Well, a 15-inch Pro is $2,100.
A: That sounds great. I'll take it.
B: Great. How would you like to pay for it?
A: Here's my VISA.
B: Let me ring you up. Okay, sign here, please.
A: Everything I need is in this box?
B: It'll take her only a few minutes to get online.
A: Thank you for your help.
B: So long. Thank you for shopping here.
A: I am looking for a pan.
B: No problem. What size would you like?
A: A big one would be nice.
B: How about this one? It's our biggest 16inch in diameter.
A: I like that one, but it's too heavy.
B: Okay, try this one. It's made of aluminum.
A: This is much better. But it has an aluminum handle.
B: Here you go. Same pan, but with a state-of-the-art, heat-resistant plastic handle.
A: That's perfect. I'll take it.
B: Great. Will that be cash or charge?
A: Wait a minute. What about a lid for the pan?
B: I'm sorry. I forgot to show you the lid. It comes with the pan.
A: I like that shirt.
B: So do I.
A: How much is it?
B: I don't know. The tag is missing.
A: Ask the clerk.
B: I will.
A: Oh, look. Here's another shirt just like it.
B: Does it have a price tag?
A: Yes, it does. It's only $20.
B: That's a great price.
A: I think I'll buy both of them.
B: You'd better try them on first.
A: I bought you a pair of pants.
B: Thank you.
A: I hope they fit.
B: I hope you kept the receipt.
A: You think they won't fit?
B: I think I've put on some weight.
A: You think?
B: Maybe a pound or two.
A: Maybe four or five pounds?
B: My waist is bigger than it was.
A: No problem. These pants have an elastic waistband.
B: You are so smart!
A: What do we need to buy?
B: Let me look at our list.
A: I know that we need milk.
A: Of course. What else?
B: We need cheese, bread, and ham.
A: What kind of cheese?
A: Of course, the cheese with holes in it.
B: I never used to buy Swiss cheese.
A: Why not?
B: I didn't want to pay for the holes.
A: I need some pants.
B: I thought you just bought a pair.
A: I did.
B: What's wrong with them so soon?
A: The pants are fine, but the pocket has a huge hole in it.
B: You shouldn't carry your keys and pens in your pocket.
A: But that's what pockets are for.
B: You should carry them in a purse.
A: I'm a man, and men don't carry purses!
B: Well, you should buy pants with stronger pockets.
A: I would if I could find someone who makes strong pockets.
B: Try a Google search online.
A: Did you go to the 99 Cents store?
B: Yes, I did.
A: What did you buy?
B: Well, I got a lot of good deals, as usual.
A: Like what?
B: Well, a dozen large eggs were only 99 cents.
A: That's a good deal.
B: And a one-pound tub of soft butter was the same price.
A: Another good deal.
B: But the best deal was five pounds of potatoes for 99 cents.
A: I don't know how that store makes money.
B: Neither do I, but they're doing something right.
A: I need a new computer.
B: What's the matter with yours?
A: It's six years old.
B: That's pretty old.
A: It still works, but I'm going to give it to a charity.
B: Are you going to buy a desktop or laptop?
A: Oh, a laptop, of course.
B: A PC or a Mac?
A: I haven't decided yet.
B: More and more people are using Macs.
A: But 90 percent of the world uses PCs.
B: And that's not going to change anytime soon.
A: I got ripped off.
B: What happened?
A: I had a car problem, so I went online.
B: Did you find a solution?
A: Yes, I did. A site I went to said they would send me the solution.
B: So, what's the problem?
A: I sent them $20 using my credit card, but they never sent me the solution.
B: What are you going to do?
A: I sent them an email asking for my money back.
B: Have you heard from them?
A: Not yet. It's been a week.
B: Well, I guess that's a $20 lesson for you.
A: Do you like shopping?
B: Yes, I’m a shopaholic.
A: What do you usually shop for?
B: I usually shop for clothes. I’m a big fashion fan.
A: Where do you go shopping?
B: At some fashion boutiques in my neighborhood.
A: Are there many shops in your neighborhood?
