“Hello, Sandy Springs speaking. How may I help you?”

“Oh, hi there! This is Dunwoody calling.”

“Why how nice to hear from our little neighbor! How are things over there?”

“Nice of you to ask. Doing real well, thank you. Except for one thing.”

“What’s that, dear?”

“Well, since you asked … traffic lights.”

“Hmmm …”

“It took me 15 whole minutes to get through one.”

“No! Really? All this traffic just makes a body frantic, doesn’t it? Where was that?”

“Well, since you asked … Roswell Road and just about any street crossing it.”

“What? Roswell Road? That’s our main street!”

“Yes, it is. And you know what else? It’s just going to get worse with all those apartments being built there.”

“Humpf! I do declare.”

“Something just has to be done with timing those lights, don’t you agree?”

“Just what do you expect me to do about it?”

“Well, since you asked … pass this along to your traffic engineers. They’ll figure it out.”

“I’ll just do that. Anything else?”

“Well …”

“Bye-bye now.” Click.
