Describe an experience when you received a call from someone you don’t know in the public place
You should say:
When you received this call
Where you received this call
What you were doing at that time
What the call was about
And explain how you felt about the call
I usually prefer to talk to people in quiet and convenient places.
And I have also had some annoying experiences of hearing people around me chatting for a long time, but I recently had a time in which I had to make a call in a public place and I was thrilled to receive the call.
A few weeks ago,on a Sunday, I took a taxi to pick up my friend.
I took my wallet out to check for something and probably just conveniently left it on the seat.
When I got out of the taxi, I was in such a hurry (很匆忙) that I didn’t check everything.
I didn’t even realize I had forgotten the wallet until I was in thecafé with my friend later that day.
I had the taxi receipt with me so I immediately called thecompany to see if they could reach out (联系) to the taxi driver.
Usually, I don’t pick up phone calls with unknown number, you know how most of those calls are cold calling companies.
That day, Iwas anxiously looking at my phone all the time in case I missed any.
After around 20 minutes, I gotthis phone call with unknown number. I picked it up immediately.
That was the call from the taxidriver telling me he has my wallet. I nearly cried out, cause I have all my important IDs and cardsinside it.
I moved to a corner table so that I wouldn’t disturb people sitting near us. He checkedsome information with me and told me he would meet me downtown later.
I was lucky to get this phone call that day and finally get my wallet back as it saved me a ton of hassle (很多麻烦).
Still, I think it is important to follow simple rules of cell phone etiquette (电话礼仪) in public.
