Last Friday,after doing all the family shopping in town,I wanted to have a rest before catching the train. So I bought a newspaper and some chocolate,went into the station coffee shop and sat at a long table. I put my heavy bag down on the floor,put the newspaper and chocolate on the table,and went to get a cup of coffee.
When I came back with the coffee,there was someone sitting next to me. It was one of those strange-looking young men,with dark glasses,torn clothes and long hair. But I wasn’t surprised at such a young man. What surprised me most was that he had started to eat my chocolate!
I was quite uneasy about him,but I didn’t want to get into trouble. I just looked down at the front page of the newspaper and took a bit of chocolate. The boy looked at me. Then he took a second piece of chocolate. Still I didn’t say anything. When he took a third piece,I felt more angry than uneasy. I thought,“Well,I shall have the last piece,”and I got it.
The boy gave me a strange look,then stood up. As he left,he shouted out,“This woman is crazy!”Everyone looked at me. That was embarrassing enough. But it was worse when I finished my coffee and got ready to leave. My face went red when I found I had made a mistake.
It wasn’t my chocolate. Mine was just under my newspaper.
