YU SUZUKI: Hello, Ralph -- does anyone know what happened to the coffee filters? The stuff out there is skunk.
RALPH: Oh, Yu! Coffee? No, I don't know anything about coffee. You might want to ask Steve in accounting! I thought he mentioned something about coffee earlier today.
YU SUZUKI: Hey there, Steve. I was wondering if you knew where I could find some coffee filters. The stuff we have has been sitting in the pot out there since Tuesday, and I really need a kick to get me through this day.
STEVE: Yu! It's so nice to see you! Coffee filters? Gee, Yu, I'm not sure about coffee filters. Say, have you seen my stapler?
YU: No, Steve, I haven't. I just want some coffee.
STEVE: Sorry, Yu. Can't help you there. Try asking Alice in HR -- she loves drinking coffee!
YU: Hi Alice. Steve said you might know where the coffee filters went off to. I can't seem to find them.
ALICE: Hi Yu!
YU: Yeah, hi. Coffee filters?
ALICE: Oh, I think we're out of them. I used the last one on Thursday. You might want to try the 7-11 down the street. Do you know where that is?
YU: Yeah, it's down the street. You just said that.
ALICE: You might want to try asking the secretary if she knows where the 7-11 is.
YU: No, that's OK. I know where it is. Thanks, Alice.
YU: Uh, why is this door locked?
SECRETARY: Hello, Yu! Where are you going?
YU: To my car. I'm going to the 7-11 to get some coffee filters. We're out. Why is this door locked?
SECRETARY: The 7-11? Oh, I haven't been there in years! I don't remember where the 7-11 is. You might want to ask Steve in accounting.
YU: No, it's fine. I know where the damned 7-11 is. Please open this door.
SECRETARY: Not until you ask Steve in accounting where the 7-11 is first and you help him find his stapler.
