Sammy: I haven't got any money.
Julia: There's a cashpoint just down the road. There! Next to the traffic lights.
Sammy:  Oh, yes. I'll see you in five minutes?

Sammy: Hi, Julia? I'm here.
Julia: Oh, that was quick.
Sammy: Where are you?
Julia: Take the lift. And when you come out, go straight on, then left a bit and you'll see me.
Sammy: Great.
Sammy: Take the lift, come out, go straight on, then left a bit and you'll see me.

Usually I find someone pretty fast, because I have a good space orientation.

I think that many times we don't listen carefully indications and we assume where is a person who are looking for . In this way we lose a lot information

I'll tell him to come at the start point, in this case the entry of the store.

I like when Sammy says: "there is anybody here", but what is the difference between anybody and anyone, everybody and everyone?

Hello Alexander Bladeck,

There is no difference in meaning between anybody and anyone, somebody and someone etc. Forms with ~one are perhaps a little more formal and less common in everyday speech, but even here it is a very subtle difference.
