Listen to a conversation between Syd and Len.
Read the following dialogue to see the idioms in context:
|Syd:||Hi, Len! How have you been? I haven’t seen you in a while!|
|Len:||Hi, Syd! I’m great, thank you!|
|Syd:||What is new with you?|
|Len:||Actually, I am thinking of participating in a craft sale this year.|
|Syd:||Oh, that’s a wonderful idea! What kind of crafts are you going to make?|
|Len:||I am into knitting, you know. I would like to sell some of the mittens, scarves and socks I‘ve made in the past year. I’ve put a lot of work in that, but I don’t want to charge too much: I don’t want people to feel like it’s a daylight robbery. The sale is going to take place in a seniors’ home during the holidays, so I just want to have a nice experience for myself and help the community.|
|Syd:||That’s great Len! Your good spirit is really inspiring. Well, and I am looking for a job these days. It hasn’t been easy. I’ve got only one job offer so far. It’s a call center. I didn’t quite get what exactly they are selling. I’m not too sure about the whole thing, to be honest. It all sounded like a monkey business to me.|
|Len:||You have to be careful, Syd. There are still places crooked as a dog’s hind leg. I wish people played by the rules. It would make things much easier.|
|Syd:||I agree. I might go back to school, though. I am still hoping to complete my degree in Education. I am a strong believer of equal opportunities and fairness for all, and education is what can help us.|
|Len:||That’s awesome, Syd! I wish you all the luck! I always knew you are the type of person who is fair and square in all your dealings!|
