Please. Thank you. Good job! That was my fault, not yours. Is there anything you’d like to learn? Can I explain it more clearly? You did an outstanding job under those difficult conditions. Please don’t talk to me right now – I’m concentrating. Wasn’t that fun? (even if it really was not fun; irony may lighten the mood). Would you like to try steering for a while? Please help me keep a good lookout. Let’s try that again, please. I’m sorry I raised my voice – I was a little stressed. What can I do to help you be more comfortable aboard? I’ll cook.
