Taking a Train

A: Tickets . . . tickets, please. May I see your ticket, miss?

B: Yes. Uh, now where did I put it? Just a moment; let me look for it.

A: Sure.

B: In my bag? No. Is it on the seat, the floor? No. Oh, here it is in my pocket!

A: Thank you. Are you going all the way into the city?

B: Yeah, the semester's out and I just took my last exam, so I'm going to go sightseeing in Chicago.

A: Is this your first time riding the train to Chicago?

B: No, this is my second time, but I don't remember much. I came with my parents when I was 3.

A: Well, I'd suggest changing seats. The view's much better over on that side of the train.

B: Thank you, I'll do that.

A: And hold on to your ticket. You might be asked for it again. Have a nice trip.

B: Thanks for your help. Maybe I'll see you again when I come back.
