    Cool would you please be a bit flexible?

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?

    A: Iím almost begging you.
    ⓐWould you please take this form and handle it for me.
    ⓑWould you please take this form and do it for me.


    B: How come you leave it until the last 5minuts and show up now?
    As I told you itís too late to do this job. Itís time to leave office now.
    This is our office rule.

    A: Iím so sorry I thought it is due tomorrow so I came today.

    B: Sorry, itís not my fault. There is nothing I can do about it.

    A: If you donít take this form I have to wait for more 5 months to apply again.
    Please donít too strict, would you please be a bit flexible?

    ⓐWould you please take this form and handle it for me.
    ⓑWould you please take this form and do it for me.

    C. Please help me complete (or, 'fill out') this form.

    B: Why did you wait until five minutes before closing to show it to me?
    As I told you, itís too late to do this job. Itís time to leave the office now.
    This is our office rule.

    A: Iím so sorry! I thought it was due tomorrow so I came today, thinking I was giving myself extra time.

    B: Sorry, itís not my fault. There is nothing I can do about it.

    A: I know this is a terrible inconvenience for you and I apologize. If I don't submit this form on time, I have to wait another five months to apply. Under these circumstances, do you think you could bend the office rule for me? Five minutes of your time now will save me five months of waiting.

    Please donít too strict, would you please be a bit flexible?
    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
