- Hello?
- Good morning. Is it the XXX health centre?
- Yes, it is. How can I help you?
- I would like to make an appointment for my son to be vaccinated against flu.
- Oooh, dear…
- ?!
- Are you sure you really need to?
- Ummm, .… well, yeah.
- And can’t you go to a private clinic?
- Erm… no. But what’s the problem?
- It’s just that we are so busy at the moment.
- And?
- Well, it’s hard to schedule an appointment, I don’t know if I’ll be able to find a date.
- Then why don’t you check?
- Eh (a deep, deep sigh of fatigue)… Oh, all right then…

After a moment, it turned out there is a date available.
Pretty soon, too – in 4 working days :-))
