(Susan visits Jenny for the weekend. She arrives at the train station of Jenny’s town in the afternoon. Susan is calling Jenny now.)

Jenny: Hello’?

Susan: Jenny! Why are you still at home? I said I would arrive at about four o’clock. It took me three hours from New Town Train Station to here. I’m really tired now.

Jenny: I see. But it’s just two o’clock.

Susan: Are you joking? It’s already 4:30!

Jenny: What? Wait a minute. Let me check my clock. Oh, no! It’s not working. I’m sorry. I’ll be at the train station as soon as I can.

Susan: O.K.
