Doing Laundry

B: Do you have any quarters?

A: Yes. I have enough for the washer and dryer.

B: Alright then, let's get going.

A: This is going to take forever.

B: The longer you keep complaining, the longer it'll feel.

B: I'd rather you wore a clean shirt to school tomorrow.

  • Operating Washing Machines

A: Put your wet clothes into the dryer, please!

B: How long should I put them in for?

A: Put them on low heat for thirty minutes.

B: Why low heat?

A: If the air is too hot, the clothes will shrink.

B: I need to wash another load of laundry.

A: If they're colored, wash them in cold water.

B: Does warm water make them fade?

A: Yes. Put the detergent here, and don't use bleach.

B: Oh, that's where to put the detergent.

A: Don't forget to add fabric softener after the first rinse.

B: Okay, I won't. Thanks.

  • Fabric Softener

A: I love the subtle smell of this brand!

B: Me too! It's not overpowering or strong.

A: I think maybe I'll buy it for myself, too.

A: No kidding? That's really something.

B: It's perfect for washing delicate clothing.

A: Well, thank you for introducing me to this brand!

B: Anytime, no problem!

Parents and Children

  • Waking Up for School

A: Sarah! Hurry up and get out of bed!

A: Quit being lazy and get up!

B: No, I have to finish my awesome dream!

A: I can't believe you turned off your alarm this morning.

B: Why? I do it every morning.

A: If you don't get out of bed, you'll get to school late.

B: That's not so bad.

A: How is it not so bad?

B: Sleep is good for growing children.

A: Yes, but you have a math test this morning!

B: I completely forgot! I'm up, I'm up!

  • Returning a Call

A: Hello, is this Mr. Smith? I'm Mrs. Jones.

A: Yes, I did, I'm returning your call.

B: Oh, right, of course.

A: What's the problem? Is James in trouble?

B: I caught him copying a classmate's test today.

A: Oh, that child is incorrigible!

B: I'm afraid I'll have to give him detention this time.

A: It's alright, I understand.

B: James certainly is strong-willed.

A: Yes, he needs a firm hand and discipline!

B: He's a good boy. Now if only he'd stop cheating!

A: Oh, is that right? I'm so proud!

B: He has been staying for tutoring and his marks have skyrocketed!

A: I always knew he had it in him!

B: He behaves better in the classroom, too.

A: I do believe my James is growing up!

B: All children need to mature is motivation!

  • An Angry Parent

A: You need to try harder in school!

B: I am doing well in school.

A: Then why are your marks in science so low?

B: I don't understand science, that's all.

A: Is that the same reasoning you have for math?

B: Yes, and English, too.

A: Tell me one single subject you're doing well in.

B: Well, I'm doing wonderfully in my music class.

A: What about history?

B: Only the parts about Woodstock.

A: That's it! You're grounded! No guitar for a month.

B: Great, now I'll surely have a low GPA.

  • Time for Bed

A: Children, it's time to go to bed!

B: But we're not sleepy yet!

A: If you get into bed right now, I'll read you a fairytale.

B: One with a princess and a prince?

A: Of course, and a magical dragon, too.

B: Why do we hear fairytales before bed?

A: So that the magic from stories can grow while you're sleeping.

B: What does it grow into?

A: Why, magical dreams, of course!

B: Please read us two tonight!

A: Alright, but only if you sleep as soon as I'm done!

B: We will. It's a promise!

  • Cleaning Up the Room

A: David! Clean your room. It's filthy!

B: It's blue, I remember.

A: Have you no shame?

B: What should I be ashamed of?

A: There are clothes all over the ground!

B: It's just easier to leave them there.

A: Your floor is not a gigantic closet.

B: I never said it was.

A: Clean your room or you can't go out today.

B: Fine, fine. I'll clean it now.

  • Caring for Puppies

A: I think these puppies are hungry!

B: They've done nothing but play all day.

A: Do you think they're old enough to eat kibble?

B: They're six weeks old; I think they're old enough.

A: Look! They're digging right in!

B: Now they're settling for a nap.

A: Between keeping them from chewing things and cleaning, they're a hassle.

B: Yeah, they are. But look how cute they are while asleep!

A: Suddenly, I don't mind the chores so much.

B: Yeah, neither do I.

A: These puppies are truly worth it.

B: I wouldn't lose a single minute with them.

  • Cooking Dinner

 

A: What's for dinner?

B: I should be asking you that.

A: Are you saying it's my turn now?

B: Actually, that's exactly what I'm saying.

A: What would you like to eat, then?
