|Tatiana:||Yes, I see that.|
|Natalia:||The problem is that nobody wants to lift a finger around here to help keep it organized.|
|Tatiana:||Hey, don’t wag your finger at me. I do more than my share around here!|

|Tatiana:||Well, you are sure right about that.|
|Natalia:||Why don’t we just get it organized ourselves and then have a meeting to discuss how we are going to keep it clean and neat in the future?|
