- Listen, Elizabeth, I had a difficult time with my parents last night. Can we talk for a while? I'm really upset.
- What happened?
- I came home yesterday slightly later than usual and they wanted to talk to me about that.
- What did they tell you?
- They told me to be home before eight every night. That's ridiculous! What do you think? I'm not a baby! They shouted at me and told me off as if I were one.
- Eight is quite early, I agree with you. I come home at nine or ten. What did you tell them?
- All of my friends can stay out longer. I told them that they must be home before 10 at night. They said they did not care. I was mad! I lost my temper. I can not be home before eight. It will kill my social life! My father blew his top and the argument started. You see when I go to the cinema, the film finishes at 9.30. I tried to explain, but they would not listen.
- I'm sorry for you. But you must understand your parents too. They worry about you.
to lose one's temper - втратити самовладання
to blow one's top - втратити голову від гніву
an argument - сварка
