I’ve been kicking for five minutes. This scooter wouldn’t start. Oh God, I’m tired.
Dylan: Hi Takeshi! Having trouble with the scooter?
May I help you?
Takeshi : How very kind of you, Dylan!
Please try your hand.
Dylan: (Starts it easily) Look, how easy it is to start.
You’re impatient Takeshi.
You haven’t put the keys properly.
Takeshi : Thanks Dylan.
