A: Hey, Mary, can you cut that out?
B: Cut what out? I'm not doing anything.
A: The tapping of your pen on your desk. It's driving me crazy.
B: Fine! By the way, would you mind not slurping your coffee every time you have a cup?
A: I don't slurp my coffee. And plus, how can you hear it when you're shouting into your phone all the time?
B: You've got to be kidding me! You're complaining about me talking on the phone when you go out for a cigarette break ten times a day to shoot the breeze.
A: Look, we have a lot of accumulated anger from working in these conditions, and it's probably okay to let off steam once in a while. But it's probably not a good idea to keep it up. I'm willing to forgive and forget if you are.
B: Fine. Let's call a truce. I'll try to be more considerate and to keep the noise down.
A: Yeah, I'll try to do the same. So, I was wondering you wanna go out to dinner Friday night?
