C: Yes, did you get my name? This is Mr. Henry Ngosu of [the] United Bank of Nigeria. Tell your father I called. It’s very important.
J: Of course, Mr. Ngosu, I’ll tell my father when he gets back.
C: Yes, tell him that Mr. Henry Ngosu of [the] United Bank of Nigeria called!
C: Tell you father I called, it is important.
J: Ok, I will tell my father you called.
C: Good, what’s your name? Who are you?
J: Jacob, I’m his son.
C: What? Can you spell it out for me? I didn’t get you.
J: Jacob. J-A-C-O-B. I’m his son.
C: Ok, Jayden, how old are you?
J: I’m sorry but I can’t tell you that.
C: What? I can't hear you. Can you tell you father I called? It is very important.
J: Mr. Ngosu, I’m sorry but my father is not at home however I will tell him you called. No matter how important it is for you to talk to him, I suggest you wait until he contacts you because as I have told you, he’s not here and please try to understand that most of the people here are sleeping and it is rude to call at 3:00 in the morning, demanding to speak to my father at this time of the night. A little respect, please. Thank you and good bye!
