ESL Podcast 672 – Asking for More Time
Marcia: Hi, Dan. What’s the status on the project? We’re still on schedule, right?
Dan: Uh, well, I’ve been meaning to call you about that. We’ve had a slight delay.
Marcia: What do you mean by “slight”? Are you saying that you won’t be able to meet the deadline?
Dan: Not exactly. I’m only asking that you grant us a short extension.
Marcia: How short?
Dan: A week or two, tops. We hit a minor snag, but we should have everything up and running in no time.
Dan: I know that all too well.
Marcia: Good, then I don’t have to spell it out for you.
