So the delivery guy calls while you’re at work. Because, they always call when you’re at the J. O. B.

Many times a delivery person is responsible for several residential areas.

If they’re still around once you get home, they might stop by again–if you ask nicely.

Here’s how:

I’m not off work yet.

我还没下班

wǒ hái méi xià bān

Can you come back after five?

五点之后能回来吗

wǔ diǎn zhī hòu néng huí lái ma
