I mean, they agreed to sign the

contract last week.

Now they're dragging their feet

and saying weird things,

so they must be looking around.

=Tunnel ahead. Please drive


If they signed the contract,

I was going to buy you a bag.

Wait until next time.

=You shouldn't be wasting

your money.=

=Just think about what to

buy Su Jin for her birthday

Our place is too small for a dog.

And they shed too much.

Especially since it affects

children's safety.

=You're very refreshing. Then

I'll buy 8. Let's sign the contract

on Monday.=

Thank you, Sir. I will continue

to work hard.

=So, what is the total cost?=

my math skills aren't very good.

I'll stop the car after this tunnel

and figure it out.

Then I'll call you right back.

=Okay, let's do that.=

I'll call you back in a minute.

Thank you.
