Model Answer:
Life is like a big journey where we meet all kinds of people at different times and under different circumstances. Sometimes, we remember some of them while we forget about many others. I guess that forgetting about people, who we don’t see often, is just a human nature just like I forgot about the young banker, whom I met a long time ago.

But, very recently, I met this young banker again at a local shopping centre when I went there to buy some regular household stuff. Interestingly, it was not me who recognized him first, but rather it was the young banker (not so young anymore though) who called me with my name from behind. I looked back, but initially, I had no clue as to who that person could really be. So, I just kept staring at him until he came forward and introduced me as the young banker who I met about 8 years ago at a bank in another city.

Slowly but surely, my memories started to come back to me when he reminded me how I forgot to pick up my bank chequebook and left the city. It was then that I clearly remembered how that young banker fellow at that time called me from his bank and informed me about my lost chequebook. Later on, this kind banker actually took all the pains to mail me my lost chequebook in a courier service.

Anyway, after meeting him again at the shopping centre after such a long time, I felt like he deserved a very special thank from me again for his sincere efforts to send me back my bank chequebook.

Well, after meeting the young banker, I learned a very important lesson which was that we should always remember the good deeds of the people if not the people themselves. I didn’t care to remember the banker, but the banker cared to remember me, which proves that he is a genuinely nice, responsible and caring person. And, if we don’t like to get to know a nice, responsible and caring person, then who we will!?
