Last night, after dinner, I was taking a walk on the road. When I walked past a convenient store I thought of going in to buy something. Then I realised that I didn’t have money with me. So I phoned my family to bring some money to me.

While waiting for my money, I saw an old man burning joss paper by the road side. I went to have a chat with him.

“What are you doing here? ” I asked him.

“I am sending money to my family” he said.

Then he asked me, ” What are you doing here?”

“I am waiting for my family to send money to me.”

On hearing this, his face turned pale and he ran away quickly.

I shouted to him, “Hey, don’t run! I’m just waiting for my family to send money to me!”

Suddenly, all the people burning joss paper nearby also ran away.Follow us on Social Media
