Jane: Tom, are you available on the 18th to go on some appointments?
Tom: That depends. I have to sell half a million this quarter, so I can only afford to go on appointments that will have a significant payout - twelve thousand at the bare minimum. Have you spoken with these people before? Do you know what exactly they are interested in?
Jane: Don't worry, I can get the appointments. If you're not available on the 18th, what other days that week are you available?
Jane, if you don't start answering my direct questions when I ask them, I swear to God I will never speak to you again. And then I will kill you with my bare hands.
