Jessica : Hey, I just talked to Jim. Mark : What did he say? Jessica : He said he had to cancel the meeting this afternoon. Mark : Oh, I see. Jessica : Is there a problem? Mark : No, It's not a big deal. He and I were supposed to talk to some new customers today. Jessica : Sorry to hear that. Mark : It's OK. This has been happening quite a bit recently. Jessica : That's strange. I wonder why? Mark : His wife has been sick, so sometimes he has to go home early to take care of her. Jessica : I see. How's work been going? Mark : Things are slow right now. Would you mind if I borrow your phone, mine's out of batteries and I have to call my boss to tell him about this. Jessica : OK, let me go get it. Its in the car.
