Dear Torsten, for what reason have you quoted the exercise: At the opician's? it's not about outfield..

Hi Saneta,

Tosten's message signatures are created by a piece of software which automatically adds a TOEIC exercise tag to the end of all his posts. The selection is random. If you look at some of his other posts, you will see the same sort of thing.
