How to visit an aunt…

M: We’ll come in the afternoon.

H: It’s too rushed.

M: The only other alternative is you come and meet us.

H: I don’t go to x.

M: So if you don’t like to go to x then we’ll come in the afternoon otherwise we won’t see you.

H: I won’t interfere with your plans. Go ahead and do whatever you’ve planned.

M: I have planned to come and visit you.

H: It’s too rushed.

M: We’ll catch the train.

H: There are no trains. The trains are awful.

M: Can you find out what time the first train is?

H:The trains are awful.

Repeat exchange x 2. Then despair.
