That is quite long.CATH: Yeah…I do not know what caught up with him.ALICE: Do you prefer your old boss to the new one?CATH: Loads, my old boss…he was very kind to me.ALICE: As a gesture of his kindness…I remember he even sent you flowers while you were in hospital.CATH: That was awesome. I will always owe him the gratitude.ALICE: Was he good about your time off in lieu.CATH: (sighs) a quality that Mr. Hambley lacks.
