Today I left office at 5:30, later I will have an English class at 7:20 and I don’t want to be late. And I know take a subway was a good idea. But there is a long distance between our office and subway station. I can take a bus or take a motorcycle to the subway. I prefer to take a motorcycle because it’s faster than take a bus. But I didn’t find a motorcycle on the road. So I wait in line for the bus. Meanwhile one of my colleagues was behind me. I told her I want to take a motorcycle because I think the bus will be too slow because today is Friday and the traffic will be bad. After several minutes I saw a motorcycle come, so I told my colleague I will go to take a motorcycle and if I couldn’t take I will be back. When I close to the motorcycle driver, he told me another guy is first. This guy asked me where I will to go, I told him I will go to Xingzhi road station. He told the driver that he was not hurry, and he can take me first and he will wait him back. I said thanks then I went up to the motorcycle, so I can arrive Jingan temple quickly and before the class I had time to have dinner.
