    The lesson I studied in my School Days....

    Respected Teachers,

    I'm from Tamilnadu, India.
    Its a great pleasure posting in this usingenglish.com.

    I kindly request you to provide me a lesson, that I studied in my school days.
    That author described what happens when telephone rings.
    The various eventualities, that might occur when telephone rings.
    The author was very frustrated on telephone rings.

    If anyone knows or has the whole story of the lesson, Please update me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards
    Ananda Kumar.C

    There are a few things that can happen when a phone rings. The phone rings, you hear the phone and answer it. The phone rings, you hear the phone and you don't answer it. The phone rings, and you don't hear it. Those are three possibilities.

    I don't know exactly what you mean, but I'll try to guess.
    1. The telephone ring when I was studying.(past continuous tense). It means that one day the telephone rang and at the same time I was studying. This condition makes him/her frustrated, as s(he) was not ready with the test,for example.

    I think the creator of the thread is looking for a specific text/passage/lesson that he remembers being taught when he was a student, right?

    Although, I think it is unlikely someone will know the very same lesson you were taught, unless it is a common text.

    Dear All,

    Thanks for your responses. It was actually a lesson that I studied in my High School. The author narrates what would all happen when the telephone rings. He was very much annoyed about the telephone call. It was a very funny lesson. However, for the present life with mobile phone, the lesson well fits. Please, if any one knows update it.
