I'm afraid I must cancel my appointment with my proctologist on Friday unless there's a deal reached by then for the economic bailout.
Oh, and my daughter has told her teacher that she can't take her algebra test (unless, of course, there's a deal reached by then for the economic bailout).

Please join in. What else must to be put on hold?
