Cue card 13: Describe when you overheard a person

 

Sample answer:

I always try not to ignore any conversation about whether they come from a stranger or people. In fact, I think that doing such things is usually a characteristic of a depressed person, and I have set a standard for myself that I will not be happy in any way. But, unfortunately, when you’re in a public place and when strangers around you are talking about everything, it’s not easy to come up with this standard, as I haven’t been able to do in a few cases.

However, it is not the case that I was really sitting in the food court of a shopping center and trying to eat some of the delicacies about a few months ago when I tried to overhear the stranger’s words. Instead, I felt like a stranger, talking on his smartphone, was actually trying to figure out how to deceive one of his colleagues by creating some fake stories to attract another colleague. In doing so, he attracts the attention of others around him. (I can call them “lies” in plain English).

The conversation lasted about 15 minutes, and on the other hand, the full details of how the stranger intends to use his vacation to find some real estate in another city, instead of seeing his real “fantasy”. At one point in his speech, the patient’s uncle even felt that after giving him clues, I moved away from strangers to clues about how people around him actually listened to his conversation, but I decided to disagree. I wanted to be there and I just wanted to finish my meal as soon as possible and leave.

Anyway, I felt bad and at the same time embarrassed, because I heard a conversation that was quite disturbing by my standard. I also felt that we all have different kinds of secrets, and we should all try to keep them that way, even if we don’t try to talk about them in any public place, because our secrets always could be used against us.
