UPBEAT MUSIC

Eliz: Now it’s time for Gary’s Tips with Gary Engleton!

Gary: Hello, Elizabeth! Today I’ll be talking about how to talk about regrets and sympathy.

Eliz: Regrets?

Gary: Yes, things you did or didn’t do in the past, things you wish you had done differently.

In today’s Business Dialog, Pauline talks about some of her regrets.

In particular, she wishes she had spent more time with her family.

She uses the expression, “I wish that...”

Let’s listen.

Pauline: I’ve been here thirty-two years.

I’ve never worked for another company!

Harry: That’s rare these days.

Pauline: I’ve enjoyed my years here, but I wish that I had spent more time with my kids when they were growing up.

Harry: I know what you mean.

Gary: Later, she expresses a similar idea, using the phrase “I regret.”

Pauline: Once he started school, we spent much less time together.

I regret that, but I’m going to spend lots of time with my grandkids.

Gary: In Mr. Blake’s conversation with Mr. Chapman, both men express some regrets about being away from their families.

Notice how Mr. Blake shows sympathy by using the expression, “I know what you mean.”

Mr. Chapman also shows sympathy when he says “That’s tough.”

Chap: (edit out: Very nice.) I’m always so busy at work that I don’t see my sons as often as I’d like.

Blake: I know what you mean.

I’m on the road three or four months a year.

Chap: That’s tough!

I’ve missed a lot of birthdays and holidays because of work.

Blake: Me too.

Gary: Talking about regrets and showing sympathy is a sign of the personal friendship that has developed between Mr. Blake and Mr. Chapman.

This personal relationship will help strengthen their business relationship.

Thank you for joining us again for Gary’s Tips.

Eliz: Thanks, Gary!
