Where have you been? The movie has already been started. We can not watch it tonight.
Something came up at work at the last minute. I couldn`t get away.
You could have called.
I am really sorry.
You are always at work. Why can`t you work around me for a change?
That`s not true. I am home almost every night by eight o`clock.
Yes, eight o`clock. But by the time we finish the dinner, it`s time to go to bed.
Honey. It is only a movie. It will still be there tomorrow. I promise to go with you tomorrow.
I`m just upset, that`s all. You could call when you`re going to be late, you know.
