Teacher to students:

"I'm afraid I haven't got enough copies of this exercise.

I tried to have more run but the photocopier

had broken and the repairman

didn't turn when he was supposed to.

He did ring to say he'd been

held unexpectedly, but that's the second

time that company has let us recently.

Well, there's nothing else for it: you're just going to have

to look with your neighbour. While you're doing

that, I'll just give the test you did last week.

Some of you slipped in a few places,

but, on the whole, the results were good. If you

carry as you've been doing, you should do fine!"
