– Logtar : You are the person that sells bus tickets?
– Ticket Dude : Correct.
– L : Could you tell me what bus takes me down town?
– T D : The bus runs on Diesel.
– L : Indeed, you are correct, but I still need to know how to get downtown.
– T D : You get downtown by taking a bus.
– L : What bus would that be?
– T D : The one that arrives at 5:15 downtown.
– L : Could you tell me what the bus number is?
– T D : Are you going to buy a ticket?
– L : Could I have the bus number so I can look at the schedule to see what time the bus leaves so I can make the rest of my decisions, one of which includes whether to buy a ticket or not?
– T D : All the buses have brand new tires.
