LET’S TALK ABOUT: Driving on the Road

NIGEL IS CALLING HIS WIFE BECAUSE HIS CAR HAS BROKEN DOWN ON THE MOTORWAY.

Telephone call

Cathy? Hi, yes, it’s me. Yes, I know. Look, erm, I’ve got a slight problem: the car’s broken down. I was trying to get to the garden centre. Yes, I know we’ve been there before. Yes, I had the GPS on, but it kept telling me to turn off at junction 36, but I knew that wasn’t right. Yes, yes, I know. Well, I was driving along in the outside lane when the car started losing power. I was going up a hill and the motor just cut out. Yes, yes, I know. OK. Well, I don’t think it’s anything serious – it’s just run out of petrol. Yes, I know I should check it. Look, I need you to call the breakdown service. I haven’t got the number here and my phone battery’s running out. Yes, I know I took the insurance papers out of the car. No, I haven’t got my driver’s licence on me either. Yes, I know you’re supposed to keep it in the car. They’re in the living room – in the cupboard just to the right of the door. Look, hurry up! I haven’t got much battery left.
