Woman Well, this is Elizabeth Parnell calling. I wanted to talk to John about the meeting next week. You see, I only get back on Tuesday night from a trade fair in the States.
Man So, would you like me to give him a message
Woman Yes, could you ask him if we can postpone Wednesday's meeting Till after lunch. That would be easier. I was originally going to be at ten a.m.
Man OK. I'll ask him to change it. I'll get back to you with a time.
Woman Thanks. And could you also ask him to add another item for discussion at the meeting I thought we were going to talk about the revised budgets but I can't see this on the agenda.
Man OK. I'd better ask him to call you …
Woman Yes, please. I'm at Head Office at the moment. Can he phone me here today I won't be back at my own desk until tomorrow afternoon.
Man Right, I'll give him the message.
