Deadline conversation

Hey Zeynep!
Hello Vicki and Jay!
Did you get my email?
Yes. And we’re going to start work on the video today.
That’s great. Can you finish by Friday?
Oooo, I don’t know. We’re a bit busy.
Can we send it next week?
I’ll have to ask Zehra.
Oh no! Not Zehra!
Hi Zehra. We were just wondering about the deadline. Could we have another week?
You have until Friday.
Sorry about that, but Friday’s the deadline.
Yeah, OK. You’ll have it by Friday.
Bye now. Take care.
Bye Zeynep.
