Describe an occasion when you had to wait a long time for someone or something to arrive.
You should say:
who or what you were waiting for
how long you had to wait
why you had to wait a long time
and explain how you felt about waiting a long time.
Ok, thank you, sir, I wanna talk about a time when I waited my favorite dish in a fancy western restaurant.
A couple of days ago, I had a meal with a good friend of mine. The friend I mentioned was Frank, who just graduated undergraduate studies in the UK, and came back for summer holiday.
We are like kindred spirits when it comes to food. We have this tradition that every time he comes back, we’ll find a nice place and have a big meal.
But unluckily, when we arrived there, we saw flooding-in people standing in a dragon-like queue in front of the restaurant, holding the number while waiting to be called. Coz it was Sunday.
Originally, Frank and I were stunned and desperate. Our stomachs had started rumbling with hunger. But we had to wait although it would take us more than 1 hour. Coz the signature dish, steak, was extremely crispy outside and juicy inside so that it had perfect review on the food website and had successfully attracted millions of customers. We had been planning to have it for quite a long time. However, thankfully, during the wait, the waiters served us some snacks, we felt a little comfortable. In addition, they also gave a few discount coupons to comfort us. Admittedly, it would be a long and painful time before you get something you dream of. But if we hadn't had a wait, we wouldn't have had a chance to get these considerate services. It reminds me of an old saying, every cloud has its silver lining.
