You … (your company) Good morning.
Assistant Good morning. I’m phoning on behalf of Mr Johnson. Would it be possible to arrange a meeting with Mr Ambrose?
You Which day would suit you?
Assistant This coming Thursday.
You I’m sorry he isn’t available. Would Monday the 16th be convenient?
Assistant Couldn’t it be sooner, sometime this week?
You What about Friday the 13th at eleven-thirty? It’s the only time available.
Assistant Friday the thirteenth! Yes, that’ll have to do, I suppose.
You Can you confirm that in writing?
