Eight exchanges between husband and wife on price-hike/quarrel

Situation:      (the husband prepares to go to the work and his wife stops him)
Wife:               Do you hear?
Husband:       Yes, what is the matter? You always stop me when I prepare to go out.
Wife:               Just give me five hundred rupees as I have run short of money.
Husband:       Where is the two thousand rupees I gave you on the 1st of May?
Wife:               I spent all. You see, how dearness has increased!
Husband:       Why don’t you spend wisely? Every month, I have to give you extra-money.
Wife:               I am not at fault. Prices of even minor commodities are touching the sky. I have cut down on necessities; still it is difficult to manage.
Husband:       What do I do? Money doesn’t grow on trees.
Wife:               You must understand, dear. We have two children. They go to school.
Husband:       Don’t you see how I work hard? I have two part time jobs.
Wife:               You won’t believe but rice, sugar and oil have doubled the price for the last two 
                         months.
Husband:       Ok. I’ll cease fire. I have two hundreds only. You can have them.
Wife:               I understand how it feels but one can’t help in dearness.
Husband:       This will change. The boss has decided to give me a raise.
Wife:               That’d be great! How about starting my tuitions at home?
Husband:       This will be splendid! Thus, we can easily manage the house.
