路上堵车Got stuck on traffic
AYou're finally here! What took so long?
BI got stuck in traffic again. There was a terrible traffic jam near the Carrefour intersection.
AIt's always rather congested down there during rush hour. Maybe you should try to find a different route to get home.
BI don't think it can be avoided, to be honest.
APerhaps it would be better if you started taking public transpot system to work.
BI think it's something that I'll have to consider. The public transport system is pretty good.
AIt would be better for the environment, too.
BI know. I feel bad about how much my car is adding to the pollution problem in this city.
ATaking the subway would be a lot less stressful than driving as well.
BThe only problem is that I'm going to really miss having the freedom that you have with a car.
AWell, when it's nicer outside, you can start biking to work. That will give you just as much freedom as your car usually provides.
BThat's true. I could certainly use the exercise!
ASo, are you going to quit driving to work then?
BYes, it's not good for me or for the environemnt.
AI have a cell phone in my car. Now it's probably on the floor on the passenger side.Why don't you get it for me, and then I can call the police?
AIt doesn't work. It looks like it's broken.I need to get to a hospital. You should drive me there.
BOh, yeah?It's better if we make a police report first. Then you can go to the hospital.
ADamn it! I'm injured here. We could wait all day for the police.
BWell, you'll just have to wait.I'm not going to move my car until the police arrive.I'll go into one of those houses over there and use their phone. Don't worry. You'll get to the hospital in time.
AIt really hurts.
BYes, maybe it does.But if you're going to drive like you did just now,you will have to get used to a little physical pain. You know what I mean?
ATo hell with you. The accident was your fault.
BI'm afraid it wasn't.And when the police get here, you will also see that it wasn't.But enough of this bickering. I'm going to go find a phone.Don't move that arm while I'm gone. Alright?
ATo hell with you.
AWhat are we going to do? I can't get the car out of this ditch. I'm stuck!
BI'm worried, Tom. I haven't seen any other cars for almost an hour.
AI know. This is terrible. What can we do? This snow doesn't stop falling!
BI told you we should have stayed in town today.The weather report said 100 percent chance of snow.Why did you want to come up here?
AI wanted to show you the cabin. We only had another half-hour to go.
BWell, now we're stuck. What can we do?
AI don't know.
BI've heard that when this happens, it's important to save energy.
AWhat do you mean?
BWe're stranded here, Tom. We may be here a long time.We need to conserve the gas in the car. The car's energy is what will keep us warm.
AI have plenty of gas.
BYes, but the gas and the battery both have to stay working.We can't just let the car run and run.If we do, it will die soon. Then we'll freeze.
ASo what can we do?
BTurn the lights off.Then, run the car and the heater only about fifteen minutes every hour.That will conserve the heat as long as possible.
AAlright. That's a good idea.
BI wish we hadn't come up here. Now we'll probably be here for days.
BYes, it happens.That is what happens in big snowstorms. People get stranded for days.
AOh, my God! It's good we have food.
BProbably we'll survive.But turn the car off for about forty-five minutes. Then we'll turn it on again.
AOkay, I'll follow your advice.
