Episode 174: Meeting the manager
Manager: You wanted a word with me?
Khalid: Yes, I want to cancel my booking.
Manager: Oh I hope I can change your mind. What seems to be the trouble?
Khalid: Well first, you mixed up my booking.
Manager: We've just got a new booking system in place. It's giving us a few teething problems.
Khalid: But that's not my fault, is it?
Manager: Of course not sir. I just wanted to point out that Christine isn't entirely to blame.
Khalid: But it's not right that I should have to pay more because of this mix up.
Manager: I hear what you're saying sir.
Khalid: Good. I'm glad you're seeing sense. Because there are plenty of other hotels that want my business.
Manager: Couldn't we come to some sort of compromise here?
Khalid: What did you have in mind?
