teacher:: does everyone wear a seatbelt each time they drive or ride in a car?
mike: no. seatbelts are for wimps(古板的人,谨小慎微的人). besides, i"m a great driver.
teacher: the chances of being injured in a car accident this year are 1 in 75. i think that"s worth talking about.
lisa: have you ever been involved in an auto accident?
teacher: only once. my car hydroplaned (在积水的"路面上行驶)on a rainy night and went off the road. fortunately i was wearing my seatbelt.
lisa: last december my brother died in an accident. he was in the back seat of his friends jeep when it rolled. he wasn"t wearing a seatbelt.
teacher: fastening your seatbelt should be an automatic thing as soon as you get into your car. but too many people still refuse to wear a seatbelt.
lisa: i wouldn"t think of going anywhere without wearing a seatbelt.
mike: it"s just hard for me to get in the habit of wearing one.
teacher: all it takes is one close-call (侥幸脱险，死里逃生)and you"ll wear your seatbelt. you really ought to think twice about not wearing one the the next time your got in a car. it may save your life.
lisa: the doctors said it would have saved my brother.
ramone:: hey jen, would you like to go to dinner with me?
jenny: i don"t know. you know what they say about office romances.
ramone: no. i don"t. what do they say about office romances?
jenny: they say you shouldn"t mix love and work.
ramone: that"s silly. what i do on my own time is nobody else"s business. besides, it pretty hard to meet people outside of the office when we spend long hours here.
jenny: you"ve got a point. but i once dated one of my supervisors and all of my co-workers accused him of favoritism(偏爱，偏心). then when the relationship went bad, he fired me.
ramone: hey, it"s the 90s. people fall in love with people they work with. that"s a fact.
jenny: that may be true. but i don"t want an inter-office relationship to affect my productivity.
ramone: if it does, it will only make you more productive, because we can support each other.
jenny: you"re sounding like we"re already married.
ramone: good grief(哎呀，天哪). all i did was ask you out. i"m sorry.
jenny: well, i still don"t feel right about it.
ramone: i"m talking about dinner tonight, not a lifetime.
jenny: it starts with dinner, but then it gets out of hand(无法控制). besides, haven"t you asked out every woman in the entire office?
ramone: i like company(我喜欢交际).
jenny: company? i heard about you from linda. she said you were an octopus(用情不专的人)!
ramone: what can i say? i"m a passionate (多情的 )guy.
jenny: well, i hope you can find something else to be passionate about.
ramone: you want to go out with me and you know it.
jenny: in your dreams. now if you don"t mind, i"ve got some work to do.
ramone: okay, i get the message. hey, do you have any sisters?
