triangle Script



Dunder Mifflin, Dwight Schrute. Please hold.

Schrute Farms. (in German) Guttentag Good morning. How can I help you?
Yes, we have availability on those nights. How many in your party?
Oh, no, I'm sorry. No king beds. No queen either.
Well we make our own mattresses that don't conform to the traditional sizes. Closest would be twin.
Thank you so much for calling.
Call back again. (in German) Auf Wiedersehen Goodbye.
Hey Dwight.
None of your business, Jim.
You running a bed and breakfast?
It's not a B&B.
Agro-tourism is a lot more than a bed and breakfast. It consists of tourists coming to a farm, showing them around, giving them a bed, giving them breakfast.

Does the Department of Health know about this?
I am not telling you anything. Permits are pending.
Dwight Schrute, Dunder Mifflin.
Hello, I'm looking for a room.
Okay, this is a misuse of company phones.
It says here you cater to the elderly.
Where did you read that?
Trip Advisor.
Trip Advisor is the lifeblood of the agro-tourism industry. A couple of bad reviews there, you may as well close up shop. That's what took down the Stalk Inn, one of the cutest little asparagus farms you'll ever see.

How many in your party?
Two.
We offer our tours of the fields and of the barn. Perhaps you'd be interested in Mose's table-making demonstration.
