Fun English Lessons
This ESL podcast is a comedy style talk show done by two Canadian brothers living in Shanghai, China. Fun to listen to and a great way to improve English.

This ESL podcast is about a guy wanting to cancel his plans for a birthday party but feels he can't because a girl put a guilt trip on him.  Lot's of good stuff here.


A:  So are you almost ready to go?


B:  You’re not going to believe this but I’m not going to be able to make it.  I just remembered that I have to go to Jill’s birthday.  It’s her 30th so it’s a bit of a milestone for her.  I promised her a month ago.  I can’t back out now.


A:  Well you seem to have no problem backing out of our plans.


B:  I know.  Sorry about that.  It was really careless on my part.  I’d obviously rather hang out with you but I know I’ll never hear the end of it from Jill if I miss her B-day.


A:  She’s not even a close friend of yours.  What’s the big deal?


B:  You don’t know Jill.  She’s weird about these things.  She told me that she’d be really upset if I didn’t make it.


A:  So you’re going to let her put a guilt trip on you?  I don’t remember her at your birthday.  You are one sorry man you know that?


B:  So how do you suggest getting out of it?


A:  Make some excuse.


B:  Lie to her?


A:  A white lie.  Just do it to spare her feelings.
