I don't remember that situation but it could be. Definitely it's happens to us be run out of money when we needed to pay for something. At this situation we probably forgot the money or we just haven't enough amount and we have to go for cash. By the way I remember situation when I wanted pay with debit card and I forgot my PIN. Finally I reminded myself but it was awkward.

I remember one time, I left my wallet in my car while I was eating in a restaurant. I realized it while I was going to the cashier's desk. Fortunately they were very understanding.

In this lesson I learn that sometimes man have some mistakes and weakness which in story above make the man can not pay the bill for both of them. To complement the man's weakness, the woman have to strong enough to save the situation and pay the bill for both of them. On task 5 and 6, I learn to keep and use my memory of the same expressions/sentences for different type/shape of problem.

Last March, when I was doing shopping for the Sri Lankan New Year, this kind of an incident happened. After buying some clothes, I came to the counter. I wanted to pay in cash. But when I was checking the wallet, I realized that I had forgotten to bring the money. Luckily, my debit card could save me. Otherwise, I don't know how embarrassing would it be.
