10. What Are Friends For?
Jane meets her old friend, Fred.
J: Hi, Fred! How's everything?
F: Not so good, I'm afraid. Supporting a family is becoming more and more difficult these days.
J: What you say can't be more true. Everything is so expensive. I can hardly make ends meet myself.
F: Oh, really? Do you need any money? What I have is not much, but I can loan you some.
J: I'm OK. Thanks for being so thoughtful anyway.
