"Can you tell me why the changes are different this time? Because you know, every time I have to make changes in the plans it costs a lot of money."

"I don't know, nah? You will have to ask de officer."

"May I speak to him now?"

"You go have to come back when de office open."

"Oh, okay. What day is the office open?"

"Monday to Friday."

"Oh good, can I see him?"

"He is only in office on Wednesdays"

"I thought so. That's why I came today. Today is Wednesday?"

"Well, he attending a seminar, nah."

"Is there a phone number that I can have, to call him if I need to ask anything?"

"Yes, write this down... Extension#.... Okay?"

"Good. Thank you. I will call this week if anything."

"Well, you might not get tru, eh? De lines not working properly."

Oh Lord, I promise to be good in this life. For I know that if I am wicked, I will spend an eternity attempting to have building plans passed at San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation Office.
