# calling in sick
--Hello. Austen Associates.
--Hey, Jamey. It's Charlie here.
--Hi, Charlie. Why didn't you come to work today?
--I'm sorry. I'm quite sick. I couldn't make it.
--Oh, so you are calling in sick.
--Yes. Can you please tell Mr. Austen that I called?
--Sure. You take care. I'll see you when you get better.
--Thanks, Jamie.
# when you have a headache
--Mom! I need some help.
--What happened? Is everything alright?
--There's no aspirin in the medicine cabinet.
--It's in my room. Why do you want it? What are you feeling?
--I have a bad headache. I guess I got a cold.
--You should see a doctor tomorrow, Charlie.
--I know. I just got an appointment. My head is killing me.
--For now just take the aspirin and go have some rest then.
# telling someone you got the flu
--Hey Charlie. I didn't see you at work today. Is everything okay?
--I'm quite sick, Michael. That's why I couldn't work.
--Oh! Now that you mentioned it, you do look a bit pale. I hope it's not serious.
--I got the flu.
--You should go to a doctor.
--I just did. He prescribed me some pills and a lot of rest.
--Okay. Get well soon.
# when you have a sore throat
--Hi, Ms. Ford.
--Hi Peter. Are you ready for your presentation?
--I'm afraid I'm not.
--Why's that?
--I have a sore throat. I won't be able to speak for that long.
--Is this an excuse?
--No, Ms. Ford. I have all my slides here with me. But it really hurts when I speak. Can you reschedule it for tomorrow, please?
--Okay Peter. Just make sure you go to a doctor.
--Thanks, I will.
