From a department store business meeting:
Well, Christmas 1) is coming up/will come up, and we 2) should all be thinking/should all think about how we’re going to celebrate such a wonderful event. Yes, I know, 3) we’ve been having/we’ve had the decorations up since September, but now that it’s less than a month away, we’re really going to have to focus!
James, earlier you 4) had said/used to say that we should really push the discounts this coming long weekend, and I have to agree with you. So 5) could/do you write me up a report about what should go on sale and for how much and 6) get/to get it back to me by tomorrow?
And Marie, Francis 7) has told/told me this morning that you 8) had told/had said him yesterday that if you hear “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” one more time 9) you’d scream/you’d screamed. I sympathize, so please talk to the music selection people and have them remove it from the replay, could you?
Finally, Dana, we need to decide who to hire to be Santa Claus. I’ve already spoken to the Santa Agency, and 10) they will send/they’re sending some of their best tomorrow at 4:00.

should all be thinking
