An English dialogue about some problems with a rented apartment.
Mario runs into some problems in a rented apartment. He is discussing the problems with the landlord.
Tenant: Mr Watson, this is Mario, your tenant in 6B.
Landlord: Hi. What’s up?
Tenant: There are a few problems with the apartment. First, the faucet in the bathtub drips constantly.
Landlord: I’ll ask my plumber to come by and fix it tomorrow.
Tenant: Also, one of the burners on the stove doesn’t work.
Landlord: What’s the matter with it?
Tenant: I can’t control the temperature. I think you’ll have to get an electrician.
Landlord: I’ll see what I can do. Is that everything?
Tenant: Well, there’s one more thing. I can’t get a dial tone on the phone; it’s dead.
Landlord: I’m sorry, there’s nothing I can do about that. You’ll have to call the phone company.
