Yesterday morning I got up at 6:00 to prepare breakfast for my daughter and husband. Then I went back to bed(I always do so) because I can have an hour to sleep. How precious it is, especially in the morning. Do you think so? When I got up again, it was 7:40. In order to save money and not to eat out, I grabbed a bite to eat. Then there was only 30 minutes left. I had to start out quickly because I always ride more than 20 minutes to my office. Unfortunately, my back tyre went flat. So I pumped it. At that time, I could still go to work on time if I rode fast. But God played a joke on me. A few minutes later, I felt something wrong with my front tyre. I didn't take care. Hardly had I thought it could manage to the office I heard an explosion. The tyre went completely flat. I stopped halfway where there was no direct bus to my office. I had to change once though it was not far away. The sun was shining brightly and there were so many people. When at last I got to my office, it was already 12:00. More than 40 yuan would be docked!
  That afternoon, after work, I took the same bus to get my bike back and had it repaired. It cost me 30 yuan. My god!
  How I regretted not going out early. How I regretted having breakfast at home. With more than 70 yuan I can have a good meal out.
  Hi, guys, if you find any mistakes, please correct it. Thanks.

Thank you all, especially, mickyz. In fact, I don't really think it "unfortunate", just funny! And the phrase "grab a bite to eat" is right. I copied it from Longman Advanced American English Dictionary. The sentence is "Do we have time to grab a bite to eat before the movie?" Anyhow I know "grab a bite" is enough to express my feeling. Many thanks.:)

Thank you all. We clock in and out every day. Really our company will deduct our pay according to the time. If the time we are late for is within half an hour, the pay of that time will be deducted. If the time is over half an hour, then an hour pay will be deducted no matter why you are late. All of us are used to it.
