work phone talk
H: What's up, A.?
A: Hi, Harold. I have a question for you.
H: Oh! Perhaps I have an answer.
A: Harold, do you think you might want to participate in--
A: Haha, you didn't let me finish! [laughter heard in background]
A: Well...we're having a group gift exchange again, this year. And I was just wondering if you would want to participate, this time.
H: No. Definitely no.
A: I just thought I'd ask. I wouldn't want you to feel left out.
H: Haha, I'd rather be left out than sucked in.
