Listen to a conversation between a student and an employee in the University bookstore.
Hi, I brought this book at the beginning of this semester, but, some things come up and... I'd like to return it.
Well, for full refund, store policy is that you have to return merchandise 2 weeks from the time it was purchased, er... but for science text books or anything having to do with specific courses.Wait... was it for specific course?
Yeah, but actually...
Well... for course books, the deadline is 4 weeks after the beginning of the semester. So for this forth semester, the deadline was October 1st.Ouch, then I missed it. But, why October 1st?
Well, I guess the reasoning is the by October 1st, the semester is for gear.And everyone kind knows what courses all we are taking that semester.
I get it, so it mainly for people who decided to its drop from or to changes new courses early on.
Exactly!!! The books have to be in perfect condition of course. They cannot be marked up or looked use in any way for the full refund, I mean.
Well, but, my situation is a little different. I hoped you might be able to make an exception.
Well, the policy is generally pretty rigid and this semester is almost over.
Okay, here what's happen? Um, I think my professor really miscalculated. Anyway the syllabus was away too ambitious in my opinion.There're only 2 weeks of classes last semester and there are like 6 books on the syllabus that we haven't even touched.
I see. So you're hoping to return in this one.
Yeah, professor already announce that we won't be reading this one by Jane Boons and all the others I bought used.
Jane Boons? Which book of hers?
It called "Two serious ladies".Oh, but you should keep it that one. Are you interested in literature?
Well. I am in English major.
You are lucky to have professor who includes the last known writer like her on the syllabus, you know, not the usual authors we've all read.
So you really think...
I do. And especially if you into literature.
Hem, well, this I wasn't it expecting. I mean... er, em... Wow.
I hope you don't think I've been too pushy.If you prefer, you can return the book and arrange for store credit, you don't qualified for refund. Policy is policy after all, but you can make it exchange and you can use the credit for your books for the next semester.The credit carries over for one semester to the next.
Emm... that's good to know, but now I am really intrigued, I guess that just because we run out of time to read this book in class, doesn't mean that I cannot read it on my own time.You know, I think I'll give it a try.
在一开始学生就说： I bought this book at the beginning of this semester, but, some things come up and… I’d like to return it. There’re only 2 weeks of classes last semester and there are I’d like 6 books on the syllabus that we haven’t even touched.这个地方看来这本书原本是教学大纲里的材料，现在把它归还
