A: John, you're late this morning. Why are you always late for work?
B: I'm sorry to be late for work. There was a traffic accident in a city square this morning, I'm stuck on the road.
A: You always have a good reason for being late. But you should call the manager in advance to explain your situation, it really burns him up.

B: Really? I don't want to be late either. But my house is too far from the office. I get up at six o'clock every morning, I think I need to get up at five o'clock from tomorrow.
A: According to company regulations, if you're late more than three times a month, you will be fired.
B: Yes, you're right. I have been late three times. I don't want to be fired. What should I do?
A: You should go to the manager's office to explain. You have to be prepared to be quarrelled by him.
B: I know. I swear I won't be late again.
A: You should have realized this long ago. Don't worry, perhaps the situation is not as bad as we thought.
B: When do you think I should go to the manager's office?
A: After the morning meeting.
