John

  Look at that stand, Chris. There are some old records!

Chris

  Yeah, a lot of people are collecting records again.

Chris

  Wow! Here is the first album by U2. I would love to own this!

John

  Pretty cool! How much is this?

Vendor

Vendor

  This one is very special. There are only a few copies left. It’s $25.

Chris

  Twenty-five dollars? I’ll give you $15 for it.

Vendor

  Sorry, I can’t go lower than $22.

Chris

  Come on…. how about $20?

Vendor

  Okay, but that’s the lowest I will go. Would you like me to wrap it?

Chris

  Yes, please or else it will get scratched in my bag.

A little bit later…

John

  I would like to go look at those antique clocks and watches. My Dad’s birthday is coming up and he loves antiques.

Chris

  Okay, let’s go over there.

John

  This watch is gorgeous. I think my Dad would love this.

Chris

  Yes, it’s nice. Do you think it works?

John

  How old is this watch?

Vendor

  It’s 40 years old.

John

  Where was it made?

Vendor

  In Switzerland. It’s a very good piece.

John

  Does it work?

Vendor

  Yes, of course. It just needs a new battery.

John

  Do you have one so we can check?

Vendor

  Sure, I will show you.

John

  My Dad already has two other watches, but neither of them works so he doesn’t wear either of them lately.

Chris

  I bet you he would be very happy with this.

John

  How much is it?

Vendor

  $100.

John

  I don’t have enough money. Can’t you sell it to me for less?

Vendor

  No. This piece is a high-quality Swiss watch.

John

  How about $75?

Vendor

  Sorry. I can’t go lower than $100 I’m afraid.

John

  Oh well, that’s too bad. I can’t afford it. Thank you either way.

Vendor

  Have you seen this watch? It’s in your price range.

John

  It’s nice, but I don’t think my Dad will like it. Thanks anyway.

Vendor

  Have a nice day!
