Could you please tell me which words/expressions you would use for each of the following situations?
1) Let’s say you and your husband/wife work from home, selling stuff (books or beauty products or anything) and you got a customer coming over (or should I say “coming ALONG/IN/OUT”? which preposition?), but you will have to run out to take care of something that just came up, and you need your husband/wife to take care of that customer for you. What words/expressions could you use to ask your husband/wife for that? “Would you mind ..... (taking care of/greeting/welcoming) this customer for me?”
2) What if you work at a beauty salon, or a bank, or anything and, as in the example above, something came up and you have to head out to deal with it, how could you ask your co-worker to help you take care of a customer?” (any expressions other than “cover for me” haha)
“Would you mind .... this customer for me?”
Thank you very much!!
