M: Excuse me, are you going to buy concert tickets?
W: Yes, I am. There are all those people in front of me.
M: Have you been here long?
W: About 45 minutes. (1)_________________________.
M: You'are kidding.
W: Not at all. There was a couple up ahead of me who got so disgusted and they finally gave up and left. They said they've been waiting for more than an hour.
M: Terrific. Does anyone know what's causing the delay?
W: If so, no one has let us known. (2)_________________________. Or maybe their computer is down.I'm sure the concert hasn't been cancelled.
M: I just hope they don't run out of tickets before I get up there.
W: That really would be annoying, wouldn't it?
M: I guess I should have come before lunch.Or has it been like this all day?
W: Apparently it has.(3)_________________________.But they are not taking phone orders,or checks, or credit cards.It's cash or nothing,and you have to come in person.
M: Well, there are two more hours before the tickets office closes.Tickets for a good concert are worth waiting for.So I think I'll just make myself comfortable.
