an occasion when you lost something

Sample Answer:

  • Well, It was the year 2015 when I lost my wallet.
  • I went to the supermarket to do the grocery with my mother and I don’t remember when and where I dropped it. I even didn’t realize till the next morning when I started looking for my wallet at home before leaving for my work.
  • After spending plenty of time on searching, I got the sense that maybe I have lost it in the downtown market.
  • However, without wasting any time, I registered a complaint with the police, my bank, the insurance company, and the immigration department.
  • Though my wallet had enough money, all I was worried about my driving licence and PR card. Moreover, my credit card was also in it.
  • I doubted that maybe someone could do the misuse of my documents.
  • I didn’t go to work that day.
  • Fortunately, in the evening, someone knocked at the door with my wallet.
  • I was glad to see my wallet in the hands of a stranger.
  • I welcomed the person inside my home. He was generous and amiable.
  • He found the wallet on the roadside while he was on his evening walk. 
  • Maybe someone took out all the money and left the remaining things inside and threw the wallet on the road. Luckily, the stranger found it.
  • As I told you, I was honestly worried about my PR card, and when I got it back, I was happy. ?
