Elementary - I Need More Time (B0042)

A: So, Casey, how are things going with the photos

for the press kit?

B: Yeah, I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that.

I might need to ask for an extension on that deadline.

A: You’ve had over a month to get this finalized! Why

are things delayed?

B: Well, the thing is, we ran into a lot of problems. . .

A: I’m not looking for excuses here. I just want to get

this finished on time!

B: I know, and I apologize for the delay. But some

things were just beyond my control. I had trouble

booking the photographer, and then Michael was

sick for three weeks, so I couldn’t include him in

the photos, and the design team lost all the files,

so I had to re-do the pictures.
