  1. One day my friend and i talk about each other’s interest. When he says his story he has a high concentration. But in my turn he doesn’t hear anything. So i was feel very angry. So i was ask him has more concentration. And then he says ‘ok i’m sorry’ and we talk about my story.

  2. Yesterday when I was taking the subway, I was so tired. I sit on the chair and next to me, there was a pretty girl. But she was listening music very loudly. My left ear was so uncomfortable. However, I couldn’t say anything because music was my style. So I covered my left ear with my shoulder.

    1. If she was pretty, maybe you could have asked her what she was listening to. Maybe you could have a conversation and go on a date later. I think you missed your chance.

    2. If she was really beautiful girl, I think you must told her ‘Hey! your music is my stlye and you too. So can i listen to your music with you?’ 🙂
