Jackson: Where have you been Katy?
Katy: I was home the whole morning. What happened?
Jackson: I’ve been trying to reach you but your cell is always switched off.
Katy: Oh! Didn’t I tell you that I lost my phone?
Jackson: No, you didn’t. And this is the second one in two months. What happened this time ?
Katy: I’m not sure. I just can’t remember where I left it. It might have been at a store but I honestly don’t know.
Jackson: You should be more careful, Katy. We store lots of personal info on our cell phones.
Katy: Yeah I know. And it was also a new one! I feel really bad about it.
Karen: Hey Jenn. Why do you look so sad?
Jenn: I was out yesterday and I can’t find my wallet ever since.
Karen: Oh, no! How much money did you have in it?
Jenn: Just some pocket money. No big loss there. I’m more worried about my school ID and library cards. I can’t believe this is happening!
Karen: Calm down. This is not the end of the world but you do have to be more careful, dear.It’s the third time this year!
Jenn: I’m sorry Mom. I promise it won’t happen again.
Karen: Make sure it doesn’t.
Jenn: Hello Mr. Perry. I’ve lost my wallet and I was wondering if you’d know anything about it.
Perry: Oh, I see. Let me check the records. So you lost it again huh, Jenn ?
Jenn: Yeah. I think I lost it in here somewhere. I came for an extra class yesterday. I can’t find it ever since.
Perry: What time did you come for the class ?
Jenn: I came in the afternoon. Around 3.
Perry: I’m sorry Jenn. No one has brought in a wallet. You should also check the notice board.
Jenn: Sure. I will do that straight away. Thanks for your help Mr. Perry.
Katy: Hey Jackson.
Jackson: Hey Katy. Long time since you last called.
Katy: I’ve just been busy with work. But I need your help right now.
Jackson: Is everything okay? What happened?
Katy: I’m at the mall on George St. and I lost my car keys. I don’t know where I left them. Can you please pick me up?
Jackson: I’m sorry but I’m on the other side of town right now.
Katy: Oh! I’m stuck here. What should I do?
Jackson: Don’t worry. My friend has a garage near that mall. I’ll give you his number. He’ll send a locksmith within minutes.
Katy: Thank you so much!
