Transcript of the podcast

…Narrator: Welcome back to the offices of Tip Top Trading where there’s a bit of confusion. Anna

?Anna: Yes

.Narrator: I think Tom’s got the wrong end of the stick

.Anna: But I didn’t give him a stick

Narrator: No, no. I think there’s been a misunderstanding. When you said your answer was ‘yes’ he thought you meant yes, I’ll marry you

Anna: Oh no! I meant yes to the promotion. Gosh I’ve got to sort this out. (To Tom) Tom, Tom, hold on please

.Tom: We can’t hang about Anna. Let’s fix a date, invite everyone – even Paul

.Anna: No, no, we can’t

.Tom: You’re right, not Paul – he just talks about biscuits

.Anna: No. I mean ‘no’, we can’t get married. I meant yes to the promotion. I can’t marry you

?’Tom: (Sounding hurt) What? So when you said ‘yes’ you meant ‘no

.Anna: Yes

Tom: (Getting angry) I see. Right, that’s it. Anna, I’ve made it very clear what I think about you and you… you… just throw it back in my face. I’ve had enough… enough of you… enough of this company. I quit

.Narrator: Anna. I think he’s upset. He’s having a tantrum

?Anna: A tantrum – is that serious

Narrator: Not really. Maybe you need to calm him down and make him change his mind. Tell him ‘not to be too hasty’, ‘don’t rush into a decision’ and say ‘we can work this out’ – you can can’t you

Anna: I think I can. (To Tom) Tom, please, don’t be too hasty. Let’s talk about this. We can work something out, just don’t rush into making a decision – (begging) please. You’re my best – my only – sales executive

Tom: Sorry Anna – I’m a free spirit. I must go where the wind takes me. You’ve had your chance, now it’s mine. I’m off


?Narrator: Wow, I’ve never seen Tom be such a… man. Will this be the last time we ever see him

:Here are some of the phrases Anna used to try and get Tom not to leave

Don’t be too hasty Don’t rush into making a decision We can work this out


.Tom: …erm, sorry, I just forgot to take my special mug. Bye
