October 27th, 2014

Episode 147 of 464 episodes

Sometimes it is better to travel light, without a lot of suitcases and bags. Learn why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:14 Explanations: 3:13 Fast dialog: 17:42 Driver: Ma’am, where would you like these suitcases? Leona: The three wheeled suitcases should go next to the bed, and the garment bag should be hung up in the closet. Where is my expandable bag? Driver: Do you mean this duffel bag? Leona: Yes. You can leave that right there. Hmm, where is my carry-on? All I see is my checked baggage. I thought I gave you my carry-on, too. Driver: You did, ma’am, and it’s right here. Leona: Oh, good. When can I expect my trunk to arrive? Driver: Your trunk? You had a trunk? Leona: Yes, I had a trunk. Didn’t you see it at the airport? Driver: Uh no, I must have overlooked it. Leona: You mean you left behind my trunk?! Who knows what has become of it by now! Driver: I’m sure I’ll be able to find it and deliver it here to you. Leona: I knew I should have used a luggage forwarding service. Driver: You might consider traveling light next time, ma’am. Leona: What did you say?! Driver: Nothing! I’m going to fetch your trunk as we speak. Leona: I should hope so! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
