August 31st, 2015

Episode 287 of 489 episodes

Get in line and learn about how to talk about positions and location within a group in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:12 Explanations: 3:01 Fast dialog: 16:30 Selena: Don’t look now, but a big group of mothers are coming to this house to give you a piece of their mind. Justin: What?! I meant it as a joke. I didn’t mean anything by it. Selena: You’ll have to tell that to Sally. She’s at the head of the group and she’s flanked by Maria and Veronica. Justin: Oh no, not them. I’d rather be confronted by anyone but those three. Selena: They’re not the only ones. They’re backed by a group of at least 15 parents. Justin: Maybe some of those on the periphery are just spectators, waiting to see what the rest of the group will do. Selena: Don’t count on it. They look determined. Justin: Who are those in the back? Selena: Those bringing up the rear? I think those are a few fathers with a message of their own. Justin: What should I do now? Selena: Start by waving a white flag. Justin: And then? Selena: Try a sincere apology, with a healthy dose of groveling. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
