Clerk: Good afternoon, ma'am. How may I help you?
Ms. Hill: Can I take a look at those two smartwatches?
Ms. Hill: The white one is heavier than the gray one.
Clerk: Yes. The gray one is lighter.
John: But the white one has a larger screen. Can it make phone calls?
Clerk: Yes. You can even send and receive e-mails with it.
John: Is it difficult to use?
Clerk: Not at all. It works like a smartphone.
(Ten minutes later)
Ms. Hill: Hmm... I like the white one, but I don't like its band. Besides, it's more expensive than the gray one.
John: You can change the band. The bands are on sale today.
Ms. Hill: Great. I'll take it and this yellow band. What's the total?
Clerk: It's NT$7,930. How would you like to pay?
Ms. Hill: In cash.
Clerk: Here you are. Thank you and have a nice day.
Ms. Hill: You too.
店員:總共是台幣 7930 元。您想要怎麼付款呢?
