Last week, something special and memorable happened. It made me feel so bad and ashamed when I thought of what happened last week!
It was finally Sunday. I decided to go to the shopping mall near home and buy some food for dinner. I brought my bag with me and went straight to the mall. The mall was full of people and I could even smell their sweat when I walked through the crowd. What a busy Sunday, I thought.
I got a drink at Starbucks as I was thirsty and tired. Then I took a seat by the window outside the shop, enjoying the afternoon. After that, I quickly ran to the supermarket as the meat was on sale. It was incredibly cheap and I wouldn’t miss the chance to get as much as I could. I ran without looking around clearly and bumped into two girls suddenly. Their bags were knocked onto the floor. I quickly helped them to pick up their bags and continued to run toward the supermarket.
The meat that I chose seemed delicious and was amazingly cheap. I was delighted and went to the cashier to pay for the meat. Surprisingly, I found something in my bag. When I looked at it more closely, I discovered that it was a wallet which didn’t belong to me. I was shocked by the discovery. Nonetheless, I tried to figure out whose wallet it could be. All of a sudden, I remembered the two girls whom I bumped into. ‘It must be theirs!’ I exclaimed.
I quickly went to the place where I had met the two girls. I really hoped that they wouldn’t worry too much. But they were not there, so I walked around the mall to try to find them. I was getting more anxious as they must think that I was a thief!
Finally, I spotted them at the entrance of the mall. One of the girls looked terribly upset. I felt sorry and quickly caught up with them just as they were leaving.
‘Hey, excuse me! I…’ I hadn’t finished my sentence when she interrupted, ‘Hey you! You are the one who stole my wallet! Give it back to me! Now!’
I apologized to her immediately and returned the wallet to her. It took me a long time to explain the whole incident to make them believe me.
That incident was unforgettable because it was the first time in my life when someone thought I was a thief, which was totally not true!
