G:I'd like to order an international newspaper. Is that possible?
R:Yes. Which paper would you like?
G:What papers do you have available?

G:I don't see the New York Times on this list.
Is it possible to get the New York Times here?
R:If it's not on the list, I’m not sure, but I'd be glad to check for you.
May I have your room number?
I'll check for you and get back to you as soon as possible
G:Hello, Mr. Cibatti?
R:This is the Front Desk. I have good news for you. We are able to get the New York Times for you. When you have time, you can stop by the Front Desk to fill out the order form. or:
G:Oh, never mind. Thanks anyway for trying. I guess I'll order the Herald Tribune instead.
Newspaper Is Late
G:Where's my Herald Tribune?
R:I'm sorry. None of the papers from Beijing arrived today. It's probably because the weather's so bad, the flight didn't come through. You'll get today's issue a day late, together with tomorrow's paper. I’m so sorry.
Magazine Is Late
G:Where's my Time Magazine? I haven't received it for two weeks.
R:I'm sorry; I'm not sure why. I'll check on it for you and get back to you.
