Movie Ticket Reservation

A: I'd like to reserve two tickets for the matinee on Saturday, the 10th.

B: For which movie, ma'am?

A: Oh, that's right; you have eight theaters there. Um . . . for "Dark and Stormy Night," please.

B: I'm sorry, that show is sold out.

A: Well, how about the matinee on the 11th?

B: Yes ma'am, we do have tickets for that show.

A: Are there any seats left in the middle?

A: The front row sounds good. How much are the tickets?

B: $13 total.

A: Okay. Can I use my credit card to pay for the tickets?

B: Sure. Could you give me your name, the name of your card, the card number, and the expiration date, please?
