Sample Answer 1
I was in the second year of my university and at that time I lost my laptop with some other necessary papers and the experience was so bitter that I still remember it. I was on my way to home from the university and I took a public bus to reach home. I had my bag with me that contained my laptop, charger, some music DVDs, a pen drive, 2 books and some other necessary papers. I lost the bag so the things that I had in my bag were also lost.
I remember that I had my bag with me and I had to stand inside the bus as there was no seat available. After an hour I left the bus and took a shared taxi. Finally, I walked for a while to reach home and when I entered my room, I felt that the bag is missing. I got so tensed and get back to the street and tried to remember exactly where I lost the item. But I could not remember exactly where I lost my bag.
I felt so low and depressed that I could not sleep at night. Even though I knew that it was impossible to get the stuff back, I tried hard to have those items back. I reported to the nearby police station, contacted with the bus authority but after 3-4 days I gave up all the hopes I had to get my items back. I felt like a child who lost his most important toys! The laptop was really important to me as it has lots of valuable study materials and other files. I felt so stupid that, I was blaming myself for the whole thing and rebuked me not to be more careful. Honestly, the whole experience and the feelings were pretty depressing.
But After few days the police called me, and he said he found my laptop back. I rush to the police station and took my laptop from the police. The policeman said the driver of the taxi was so honest he was searching for me for a few days but unable to found me. So, he came to the police and gave it here.
I was really happy at that time. I thanked the taxi driver and the police officer.
