SAMPLE DIALOGS

 

Dialog 1

TIM: Our new partner’s arrival should make everything smoother.

JIM: Oh, I think you’re dead wrong here.

TIM: Dead wrong, that’s a little strong, don’t you think?

JIM: Maybe it’s a little strong, yes, but I don’t think you could be farther from the truth, right now.

TIM: Really what gives you such a strong conviction that this isn’t a good move?

JIM: Well I know about his past. He’s got some skeletons in the closet.

TIM: Really, I didn’t know that.

JIM: I can see that, yeah. That’s why I disagreed with you!

 

Dialog 2

TIM: All business are going to mark growth this year, I can feel it.

JIM: That certainly is optimistic. I can’t share your view, I’m afraid.

TIM: Why not?

JIM: I don’t think the economic environment has sufficiently recovered.

TIM: I’m not so sure about that. A lot of startups are doing well this year.

JIM: That’s true, but a handful of startups doesn’t mean the whole economy.

TIM: I see your point, but I’ve still got a good feeling.

JIM: Suit yourself.

 

Dialog 3

TIM: This is the year of the cloud-based app. All the projections show that this is true.

JIM: I object to that, personally.

TIM: Why is that?

JIM: I think some people are afraid of storing information in the cloud. They think that it will be easier to hack.

TIM: Well that’s certainly true, but I still think that the momentum is unquestionably behind cloud computing.

JIM: You may be right, but I’m still afraid that I have to take the opposite side on this one.

TIM: Everyone is entitled to their opinion!

 

Dialog 4

TIM: What do you think about my proposal?

JIM: I think it’s a good idea.

TIM: Just a good idea?

JIM: Yeah, it’s not a great idea, but it’s not a bad idea either.

TIM: Well, thanks for the compliment, I guess.

JIM: Sorry, I don’t mean to be so negative, it just occurred to me that maybe you didn’t think everything through the way you should have.

TIM: I disagree. I think we put all the work we needed to into this plan.

JIM: Well, you’re definitely wrong there. Your plan last year was much more convincing.

 

Dialog 5

TIM: All these deadlines make a person go crazy.

JIM: I couldn’t agree more.

TIM: There’s so much pressure, and when you work like that, everything goes wrong.

JIM: I feel exactly the same way. You try and you try, but it just doesn’t work out.

TIM: Right? It’s terrible the way we work these days.

JIM: Exactly. One day someone is going to get sick from all this pressure.

TIM: That’s just what I was thinking. Some of our colleagues are already at the breaking point.

JIM: Sad, isn’t it?

TIM: Definitely!
