Learn the dialog

Listen to the dialog while reading the text.
I'm sorry I'm late today, my car broke down this morning.
Don't worry, it's alright. Maybe next time you could call though and let me know you are running late, so we don't wait for you.
Of course! I was stressed about my car and simply forgot.
It's too late now, just remember next time.
I will. I hope I didn't miss anything important?
We started about 30 minutes ago, but I can go over what you have missed again.
Thank you, I really appreciate it. And sorry again for being late.
I've been late before too because I missed the bus. It happens.
