A: I'm checking out in about half an hour.
B: Whenever you're ready to check out, I'll be ready, sir.
A: Great! As you know however, the day in New York has hardly begun.
B: You're right. It's only 9:00 a.m.
A: Therefore, I think I'll explore New York some more. But I need to store my bags.
B: Sir, our storage facility is merely $5 an hour. You also need to leave a deposit.
A: My luggage isn't enough of a deposit?
B: Unfortunately, it isn't. VISA or MasterCard will suffice, though.
A: Well, then. Let me put on my thinking cap for a moment.
B: Better hurry, sir. Remember you have to check out in less than half an hour.
