Study the power point to get to know this week’s idioms.
Listen to a conversation between Syd and Len.
Read the following dialogue to see the idioms in context:
|Len:||Wow, that is a stunner. When do you get this little Beetle?|
|Syd:||I’ve had it for about a few months now.|
|Len:||You don’t seem too excited.|
|Syd:||I went online to review the dealership where I got it from. Looks like they sold me a lemon. Not uncommon, apparently|
|Len:||I am sorry. I should have told you that they tried to lead me up the garden path too. I checked with my brother-in-law who is a mechanic, he told me these people have a reputation of being dishonest.|
|Syd:||Really? They told me this thing only had 65,000 km on it and had never been in an accident. I have had so many issues since I got it. They were bending the truth about that…|
|Len:||Syd, you’re such an honest guy that you take everyone at face value. Don’t get so down on yourself, you hear?|
|Syd:||I guess so. It’s just sad to see that they could lie through their teeth. Well, I am going to post my review. Just to warn others…|
|Len:||Not a bad idea.|
