Mishap

Several years ago, I graduated from university and found job to start my career. However, now, I'm back at school and became a student again. The first day I registered in Ara, I felt fortunate and pleasure to get a student card. I cherished it and put it into my wallet.In the afternoon, I went back home by bus. Behind me was a queue of 7 people. When I first got on the bus and swiped the card, there was no function, again and again with the help of driver, still didn't work. I became nervous, and the muttering from the back made me embarrassed. I doubted if it was demagnetized. Then, the driver asked, are you sure this is your bus card? How awkward it was! it was my Ara student card.
