At the Chemist's

Chemist: Hello, can I help you?

Customer: You see, I have a splitting headache and a running nose.

Chemist: Is that all? Is there something you don’t pay attention to?

Customer: I guess so. I have a backache too and some discomfort in my throat.

Chemist: Have you taken your temperature today? You have to consult a doctor.

Customer: I was too busy to go to the therapeutist. My temperature yesterday was 38 and 2 degrees.

Chemist: You’ve got a high temperature, a sore throat and a backache. It must be influenza.

Customer: Influenza?

Chemist: Sure, I mean flu. You’d better stay at home and drink more fluid.

Customer: And what about medicines?

Chemist: I advise you some hot relief, Panadol pills to put the temperature down and nasal drops.

Customer: How should I take them? Are they safe for my stomack? I must say I hate pills.

Chemist: You'd better take Panadol if you hate pills. Take it three times a day after meal. Make a water solution of the hot relief and take it two times a day.

Customer: Thank you very much. I’ll follow your advice.

Chemist: You’d better call for the therapeutist to get the sick leave.

Customer: I’m sure to do so. Thank you again.
