Ve, diyalogumuza geçelim...

DIALOGUE: BOB DRIVES A HARD BARGAIN

Carol from the Village Market calls Bob to discuss Susan's Scrumptious Cookies. Carol and Bob discuss how much Bob will receive for each cookie.

Carol: Hi Bob. How's it going?

Bob: Fine thanks, Carol. How are you?

Carol: Can't complain. Bob, I've had a chance to crunch some numbers. I can pay you 50c per cookie.

Bob: That's out of the question. At that price, it's not worth our while. The ingredients alone cost us 30c per cookie.

Carol: Okay, let me sweeten the deal — 60c per cookie?

Bob: Carol, my wife and I need to make a living from this business.

Carol: Okay, okay, you've twisted my arm. I'll pay you 75c per cookie. Take it or leave it!

Bob: Now you're talking! We'll take it.

Carol: You drive a hard bargain, Bob.

Bob: Yes, but we make a good cookie.

Carol: Let's get the ball rolling. Bring me 2,000 cookies on Monday morning by 9 a.m.
