Simon : I’m in the mood for a snack. Let’s stop somewhere. Ken: OK. Do we need fuel? Simon : Yeah, I’ll stop at the gas station up ahead. Would you mind refueling the car for me? Ken : No, not at all. Simon : Do you want anything from the shop? Ken : Hmm, I fancy a chocolate bar. Can I pay you later? Simon : It’s my treat. But is there any chance that you can check the oil and tyre (tire) pressure? Ken : Done!

Simon : I can’t believe we have gotten lost and broken down in the middle of nowhere. Ken: Yeah, especially after having such a blast in New York. Simon : And no phone signal! What are we going to do? Ken : We have no choice. We will have to walk back to that small town we passed a while back. There was a service station there. Simon : Let’s hitchhike. Someone might give us a ride. Ken : Not a chance! Hitchhiking is too dangerous. Simon : Hmm, I guess you’re right.
