Woman #1: The buy­ers.
Woman #2: Like what?

Woman #2: So what hap­pened?
Woman #1: I end­ed the sale, be­cause I had two peo­ple watch­ing me and I got scared.
Woman #2: Watch­ing you?

Woman #2: Okay, but why did­n’t you sell the stuff?
Woman #1: I was scared and this guy kept ask­ing me to send pic­tures.
