Describe an experience when you lost something
You should say:
- what you lost
- how you lost it
- where you lost it
Well, if truth be told, I am generally a cautious person when it comes to handling my belongings. However, unfortunately, irrespective of how responsible you are, we all have lost some or the other things. I am no exception in this scenario, So, the recent thing that I have lost is my pen drive, which was a few weeks ago.
You must be familiar with what a pen drive is, right? Some people also call this peripheral computer accessory, a flash drive, and it helps to store essential files, such as pictures, documents, videos, and more. Needless to say, I had 8GB of essential data in my pen drive, some personal and some professional. In fact, I would say some of the files were extremely vital that the entire functionality of my professional life was at stake. So, I suppose you can figure out how invaluable it was for me.
Regrettably, I lost it when coming back from the office. It was a rainy day, and I was travelling in an auto-rickshaw. Although I kept a tight hold on everything I was carrying to and from the house, that day, somehow, I forgot my bag in the auto. To my surprise, I got a call from an unknown number – it was the driver who had taken the number from my ID – and told me about this blunder that I had committed. He was so generous that he came back to my house to drop the bag. So, when I checked the bag, my pen drive and a few other important documents were missing. That is one of the things that I regret losing.
