A: I should tell you that I'm checking out in about 30 minutes.
B: I'm ready when you are, sir.
A: Very good! Now, it's still morning here in New York.
B: You are so right, sir. The clock just struck nine.
A: I'm going to spend some time exploring the city. What can I do with my luggage?
B: Sir, right here we have a storage site. Its only $5 an hour, but you need to leave a deposit.
A: A deposit? Isn't my luggage a deposit?
B: I'm sorry, sir, but it isn't. Your MasterCard or VISA will take care of things nicely.
A: Okay. Let me think about this.
B: Okay, sir. But don't take too long. You only have 30 minutes.
