Describe a time when you did not tell a friend the truth
You should say:
When it was
Where it happened
Why you did not tell the truth
And explain how you felt about it
Well, I would like to share an experience while I was in elementary school for more than a decade ago.
There was a semester during which we were supposed to buy an instrument to learn in our music class. I clearly remember that many classmates of mine brought some instruments that looked so fancy to me, for example, violin and saxophone. However, I didn’t bring anything in the first class because I wasn’t so sure what instrument I could learn. Then, a deskmate of mine named Wang Lei noticed my situation and lent me his accordion to me to have a try.
I felt it was pretty easy to play, but I wasn’t so sure that I could play it well. So, I even borrowed his accordion for a week to experience. Well, you know, something awkward happened while I was practicing this little thing. This article is from Laokaoya website. A corner of the accordion was hit by the door while I was walking out of my bedroom. You know, my mind went blank while this incident happened. I didn’t know how much it would cost me to buy a new one. This made me feel so edgy. Thank God that I eventually got the same type from Taobao at a reasonable price.
Well, I didn’t tell Wang what really happened to his accordion. I just gave him my newly bought one and expressed my appreciation for his help. The reason why I didn’t tell the truth was that I didn’t want to make him unhappy about the incident I made. It would make him feel sorry that I just bought him a new one.
I felt guilty a little bit but still thought that I handled this thing in an appropriate way. You know, at least I managed to compensate for the loss of this broken instrument. I definitely hope this won’t happen again in the future.
