Расшифровка записи
Todd: Hey, Jeff, this is a very nice room.
Jeff: Hmm. It’s comfortable and cozy. It’s in Japanese style.
Todd: I like it. It’s got the tatami mat, and some beautiful vases. Oh, you have a pretty small kitchen. Do you live alone?
Jeff: Right now I have a friend of mine staying with me. His name is Mark. He’s my childhood friend.
Todd: Oh, really, sort of a room-mate.
Jeff: Sort of a room-mate, yes. Short term, he’s staying with me short-term, so yes, a room-mate.
Todd: OK, how’s that going?
Jeff: Ah, I don’t like it.
Todd: Why?
Jeff: He’s lazy. He’s messy. He doesn’t exercise and eats junk food. And well, you know, Mark contributes nothing to the household budget. He’s so careless.
Todd: Oh, so he lives here and he doesn’t cover his living expenses.
Jeff: Well, yeah. But what annoys me most is that he’s lazy, and he doesn’t do much all day.
Todd: That’s got to be pretty irritating.
Jeff: He’s a great fellow. He’s a good friend of mine, but, yeah, he’s a disgusting slob, I try to encourage him to do a few things but he’s a tough one. He doesn’t want to do anything.
Todd: Are you going to tell him he has to move out?
Jeff: Ah, no, he’s a smart man. He knows the deal. He knows what’s going on, and I think he’s, yeah, I would never ask him to move out because I don’t mind having him here but I’m just going to try to whip him into shape.
Todd: Oh, so you’re just going to try to change him so he becomes a better roommate?
Jeff: I’m going to try to, yeah, try to get him a better schedule, a better schedule (yeah) like exercise and eating right and smoking less and watching TV less.
Todd: Well, what is his schedule?
Jeff: Ah, his schedule is, he’s like a night owl, when he goes to bed I go to work. He stays up most of the night watching TV, and then he sleeps most of the day recovering, and then when he gets up he has a headache. He’s a bit sluggish and slow. It’s not a healthy option. Actually, I would like him to take up some kind of sport or sports games.
Todd: Yeah, but it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen. Good luck.
Jeff: Thanks. I’ll probably need it.

It’s comfortable and cozy. It’s in Japanese style. Не сказано, кто нанимал дизайнера.
