  Part One Demanding Laundry Service

  (H = Houskeeping, G = Guest)

  H: Housekeeping. May I come in?

  G: Yes, I'd like to have this laundry done, please.

  H: Certainly, sir. Would you fill in the laundry form, please?

  G: Yes, But where is it?

  H: Just in the drawer of the writing desk.

  G: Fine. May I use your pen?

  H: Certainly, sir. Here you are.

  G: Thanks. Oh, and I don't want these shirts starched.

  H: No starch. I understand, sir.

  G: Yes, and I'd like this sweater washed by hand in cold water. It might shrink otherwise.

  H: By hand in cold water, I see.

  G: Here is the laundry bag and the form.

  H: Well, two shirts, one sweater, a pair of socks and a pair of trousers. There are five pieces altogether.

  G: When will it be ready?

  H: We will deliver them around 6 p.m. tomorrow.

  G: Thanks a lot.

  H: You are welcome.

  Part Two Special Instructions

  (H = Houskeeping, G = Guest)

  G: Do you have a mending service for clothes?

  H: I beg your pardon, please.

  G: A mending service. I'd like these socks darned.

  H: I see, sir. Yes, we can mend them.

  G: There's this jacket, too. It has a tear in it.

  H: I'm sorry, sir. We can mend a seam but not a hole.

  G: There's also a stain on this jacket. I'd like it removed before it's dry-cleaned.

  H: May I see it, please?

  G: Yes, here you are.

  H: What kind of stain is it, sir?

  G: I spilled some vinegar on it.

  H: We will do our best to remove the stain but we cannot guarantee the result.

  G: That's OK. How long do you think it will take?

  H: I'm not sure, sir, but I will check with the Laundry and let you know.

  G: Fine. I'd like it as soon as possible. And how about the, price?

  H: It's all on the laundry list.

  G: Where is it?

  H: It's in the writing desk's drawer.

  G: 0h, thank you.

  H: My pleasure.

  Part Three Suggesting Express Laundry Service

  [Scene: Mrs White (M) is calling the Laundry Department. C = Laundry Clerk]

  C: Good morning, can I help you?

  M: Would you please send someone up for my laundry, please? Room 1012, White.

  C: Certainly, Mrs White. A valet will be up in a few minutes.

  M: I have a silk skirt, which I don't think is colorfast. Will the color run in the wash?

  C: We'll dry-clean the skirt. Then the color won't run.

  M: You're sure? Good! And the lining of my husband's jacket has come unstitched. It might tear over further while being washed.

  C: Don't worry, madam. We'll stitch it before washing.

  M: That's fine. Now, when can I have my laundry back?

  C: Usually it takes one day to have laundry done. All deliveries will be made before 6:00 p.m. And we also have express service.

  M: I'd have the express because I'm going to a party this evening. How soon will they be done?

  C: It only takes 3 hours.

  M: What is the difference in price?

  C: We charge 50% more for express, but it only takes 3 hours.

  M: Well, thank you. Oh, I think your valet is at the door.

  C: Please feel free to ask him anything. Also, please refer to your laundry list for further information. Thank you for calling and have a nice day.
