amber:(to another shopper) excuse me. where can i find the information desk?
shopper:just around the corner (points the way).
amber:thanks. (she gets to the information . he overhears an inquiry by the customer ahead of him).
customer:where's the 'lost and found' ?

officer:10 pm, miss.
amber:thank you. and can you point me to the video cameras?
officer:5th floor, to the left of the escalators.
amber:thank you. (he gets on the escalator and goes to the 5th floor. first he picks up a supply of videotapes, and then he browses around the video cameras for a while. then he overhears another customer).
customer:let's go to the food court and get something to eat.
(sounds like a good idea to amber, since she hasn't had dinner yet. she wanted to make sure she could tape the next of 'cops', so she left for the department store right after work. she finds out where the food court is and goes to eat).
