LYNCH> So, Rachel, is it important in your school for students to arrive on time?
RACHEL> Yes, students must arrive at 8.30 in the morning for the morning class, 2.30 in the afternoon for the afternoon class, and 7.30 in the evening for the late class. And what’s the timetable at Vocatic? I suppose you start classes at midnight or on the weekend… something crazy like that.
LYNCH> No, no no… classes start on Monday morning and follow a very similar timetable to your school – except in summer when they finish in July, in fact, close to my birthday on July 13th.
RACHEL> Well, that should be easy to combine then with our timetable. Can you send me that sheet with all the students’ names on?
LYNCH> Ok, I’ll send it in two days time. On Monday I think.
RACHEL> No, I need it now. I know you Rokeby… I’ll receive it in 2014 or something like that. I want it in the afternoon today, not at some point in the future.
LYNCH> Okay… I’ll send it in one hour.
