My most embarrassing experience happened a few years ago . when I was a grade 9 student. In those days, my biggest dream was a red hat - a floppy cotton hat like the one my pop star idol wore in her video clip. I thought I would look great in it. My father knew this, so on my birthday, he gave me some money so that I could buy the hat for myself. I was extremely excited and decided to go to the shop at once. I got on the bus and sat down next to a schoolboy about my age. The boy glanced at me and turned away. There was a sneaky look on his face, but I didn't think much about it. I was busy imagining how I would look in the hat.
After a while, I turned round and noticed that the boy’s schoolbag was open. Inside it, I saw a wad of dollar notes exactly like the ones my father had given me. I quickly looked into my own bag - the notes had gone! 1 was sure that the boy was a thief. He had stolen my money. I didn’t want to make a fuss, so I decided just to take my money back from the schoolboy’s bag, without saying a word about it. So I carefully put my hand into the boy’s bag, took the notes and put them in my own bag.
With the money, I bought the pretty hat of my dreams. When I got home, I showed it to my father. “How did you pay for it?” he asked. “With the money, you gave me for my birthday, of course. Dad,” I replied. “Oh? What's that then?” he asked, as he pointed to a wad of dollar notes on the table. Can you imagine how I felt then?
