Will you  hand me a pencil? Would you  turn on the air conditioner? Could you  help me with these boxes? Would you please  turn down the music? Could you possibly  give me a ride home?  Would you mind  tak ing  a picture for us? Would you be so kind as to  lend me your cell phone? Follow-up Thanks for your help Thank you so much. Thanks, I really appreciate it. Sample conversation : Excuse me, could you do me a favor? Sure, what is it? Could you help me move these chairs? No problem. / I'd be glad to. Thanks a lot.
