A : What's the bonus like at your company?
B : Well , it's OK , I suppose . We get about the equivalent of six months' salary.

A : What did you buy?
B : A new home health monitor.
A : Health Monitor?I read an article about that racket . They're overpriced to begin with ! Listen : if I were you , I'd let them take back their monitor and spend my money on something more practical .
B : You're kidding！
A : No joke！
B : That's something else！ Maybe I'll return it to them.
A :Did you bring some lunch with you?
