WITH A VERY BIG THANK YOU FROM THE LONWEB TEAM!
Iyalnu Naa The surprise

 Deesi gb foonu si gbiyanju lati tun p onbr rẹ leekan si.

Daisy picked up the telephone and tried to get through to her client again.

 Onbr rẹ, ni Franki Baksini kan bayii, ti o n il-ẹru nla kan fun awọn ohun l-ina, k tii sanw fun ise ọjọ mj ti oun se fun un. 

Her client, a certain Frank Baccini, who had a warehouse of electrical goods, had not paid for her two days' work.

 Deesi ti  tiraka lati se awari ibi ti alailootọ ẹnikeji Ọgbẹni Baksini n gb bayii o s n fi taratara reti sọwedowo rẹ.

Daisy had managed to discover where Mr. Baccini's dishonest partner was now living and was anxiously expecting her cheque.

 Deesi ti bẹrẹ si ni r o p fmọ ki       Onbr oun pẹlu naa m jẹ alaisootọ.

Daisy was beginning to think that her client was dishonest too.

 Ohun kan bi ẹni ti nnkan s, dhn ni odikeji foonu, Hẹlo, ki ni ẹ fẹ?

A very bored "Hello, can I help you?" was the reply at the other end.

 Ohn ọdọbnrin kan tii se akọwe Franki Baksini ni.

It was a young woman's voice, Frank Baccini's secretary.

 Jọwọ, mo fẹ ba Ọgbẹni Baksini sọrọ,  

"I'd like to speak to Mr. Baccini, please."

 E m bn o, Ọgbẹni Baksini k si ni il.

"Sorry, Mr. Baccini is out of town."

Deesi tak, o ni amọ, igba wo ni yoo pad d?

"But when is he coming back?" insisted Daisy.

 Emi k mọ o        

"I'm afraid I don't know."

 N jẹ o le sọ fun un p Deesi Hamitin p e sori aago maa s fẹ lati ba a sọrọ ni knkn. 

"Will you tell him Daisy Hamilton telephoned and would like to talk to him urgently."

 K bur, dara mo r bẹẹ ni gbogbo s k-kn-mi ti fun un.

"Well - yes, I suppose so," was the completely unconcerned reply.

  Eyi ni p sor foonu ẹlẹkẹwaa ti Deesi maa ni laarin ọsẹ meji pelu ọdọbnrin yii, sugbon Franki Baksini k tii kn si i paapaa.

This was the tenth telephone conversation Daisy had had in two weeks with this young woman, but Frank Baccini hadn't got in touch with her yet.

 Inu bi Deesi, o si pinnu lati lọ si ile-ẹru Ọgbẹni Baksini ki oun l mọ ti b  w nibẹ.

Daisy was furious and decided to go to Mr. Baccini's warehouse to see if he was there.

 Nigbati d ibẹ, o kn ilẹkun ọọfisi naa.

When she arrived, she knocked on the office door.

 Pelu ohun ma-yọ-mi-lẹnu rẹ, Akọwe Baksini wi pe, Wọle w.

Mr. Baccini's secretary said in her monotonous voice: "Come in."

 Mo ti p sori aago ni aimoye igba emi ni Deesi Hamitin.

"I've telephoned many times - my name is Daisy Hamilton."

 Lootọ? Tani o fẹ ba ni gbolohun? ọdọbinrin naa beere lai tilẹ bojuwo Deesi.

"Really? Who did you want to speak to?" asked the young woman without even glancing at Daisy.

 Deesi fs p, Ọgbẹni Baksini ni mo fẹ ba ni gbolohun.

"I want to speak to Mr. Baccini," replied Daisy.

 Kd tilẹ ti mura j s i.

She was becoming even more aggressive.

 Pelu ohun ma-yọ-mi-lẹnu rẹ naa, o wi pe, Ko si ni ibi o. s tun n k iwe-irohin rẹ lọ. 

"I'm afraid he's not here," said the secretary in her usual monotonous way and went on reading her magazine.

 Deesi wi pelu ariwo pe, t gẹẹ bayii, sọ ilẹkun gb-. 

Daisy shouted "Enough is enough!" and banged the door closed.

 Ọkn Deesi kaarẹ lọpọlọpọ.

Daisy felt rather depressed.

 Mo mọ ohun ti maa se, Maa fẹsẹ kan duro ni isọ Luigi fun ktya ọlọgẹdẹ kan ti o dọsọ.

"I know what I'll do," she thought, "I'll stop off at Luigi's for a nice banana split."

 Deesi fẹran lati maa jokoo si isọ ktya Luigi, ki s takurọsọ diẹ pẹlu onisọ yii, ti jẹ ara Itali kan ti ki i se elr buburu

Daisy liked sitting in Luigi's ice-cream parlour and having a little chat with the owner, a positive-thinking Italian.

 Bi Deesi se m k gn lọ si ọọfisi rẹ, ọrọ ti o jẹ mọ awon ọmọ eniyan k dn un mọ.

As Daisy walked up the stairs to her office she felt a little less sore about human beings.

 Bi Deesi se n paarọ bt rẹ lọwọ s slbt, bẹẹ ni ẹnikan kn ilẹkun ti si wọle w.

Just as Daisy was changing her shoes to a more comfortable pair, someone knocked on the door and walked in.

 Onisẹ kan ti wọ asọ isẹ toketilẹ ni

It was a workman in overalls.

 Omidan, ẹ jọwọ se ẹyin ni Omidan Deesi Hamitin? Nibo ni ki a gb awọn eleyii kalẹ s? n na ọwọ s pt nla meji ti n bẹ ni idasẹle bgk.

"Excuse me miss - are you Miss Daisy Hamilton? Where shall we put these?" pointing to two large boxes on the landing.

 Bẹẹ ni, emi ni Omidan Deesi Hamitin sugbọn ki ni awọn ohun ti w ninu awọn pt nibẹ yẹn?

"Yes, I am Daisy Hamilton but what have you got there - what's in those boxes?"

"The big one is a fridge and the smaller one is a cappuccino-making machine. You've chosen well, you know, these are the best makes around."

 Gbogbo ow ni ti w ni sanp. S sọ ibi ti maa gbe wọn kalẹ si.

"It's all paid for - just tell me where to put them."

  k diẹ ki Deesi kọ awọn ẹr yii nigbati ri ti Franki Baksini pẹlu n wọle bọ w.

Daisy was just about to refuse the goods when she saw Frank Baccini coming in the door, too.

"Miss Hamilton. I'm very sorry I haven't been in touch.

"I do hope you don't mind but I had noticed you didn't have a fridge in your office and... this cappuccino-making machine is a little specialty.

 O, tilẹ w naa, sọwedowo rẹ ni yii fun isẹ ribiribi ti o se, pẹlu n ow diẹ fun awọn nw pẹpẹpẹ rẹ

"Oh, by the way here is your cheque for the excellent work you did, with a little extra for your expenses."

 Franki Baksini ri pe ẹnu ya Deesi, fi kun ọrọ pe:

Frank Baccini saw Daisy was astonished and added:

 Mo lero pe akọwe mi ti maa pe ọ? Mo lọ irin ajo lati bi ọsẹ meloo diẹ lati lọ gbadun pẹlu iyawo mi tuntun.

"My secretary did phone you, I hope? I've been away for a couple of weeks on honeymoon."

 Deesi yara sara rẹ giri, Rara, ko buru, k p mi   amọ ko si iyọnu, Ọgbẹni Baksini.

Daisy recovered herself, "Well, no, she didn't - but that's quite all right Mr. Baccini!"
