***** NOT A TEACHER *****

Good morning, Adel.

MARTHA: I'm ready to go to the beach.

JOE: Sorry, baby, but we can't go today. The boss gave me

some extra work.

MARTHA: But you promised me! And I even bought a new swim suit.

JOE: I know, baby. But my work comes first. I promise that I will make it up to you.

MARTHA: How?

JOE: Tonight I am going to take you to the best restaurant in town and then to that new movie you want to see. OK?

MARTHA: Yes, that's SOMETHING GOOD TO TAKE THE PLACE OF SOMETHING ELSE THAT YOU DID NOT DO.

*****

TOM: Did you tell the boss that we want $10 more each day?

SUE: Yes, I did.

TOM: What did he say?

SUE: He said no.

TOM: What did you say?

SUE: I told him that we would all quit if he didn't give us more money. He knows that we are the only people in town who have these special skills that his company needs.

TOM: And then what happened?

SUE: He said that he would give us the money.

TOM: Oh, Sue, you are so clever. Whenever we want more money, we can hold the possibility of our quitting over his head.

SUE: That's right, Tom. We can always THREATEN him with the possibility of our quitting. Then he will do what we want.
