Talking to a friend about the cell phone you lost

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.

Telling your parents that you lost your wallet

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?

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.

Perry: What time did you come for the class ?

Jenn: I came in the afternoon. Around 3.
