    My turn has already gone. I couldn't go in because I was waiting for the report.

    I would like you to suppose at a hospital there is a man in the queue. This person had to go in the doctor's office after four to five people means there were four to five people ahead of him. But when it was his turn to go in the office he didn't go because his report wasn't there. His friend had gone to bring it which they had to show to the doctor but he hadn't returned yet. So he waited and let the people who were behind him go before him and waited. when his friend came with the report he tried to enter the office but people opposed because they thought that he was trying to enter before the people who were ahead of him. So what this person should say here? "My turn has already gone. I couldn't go in because I was waiting for the report and let people go in who were behind me".


    Could you please check my sentences?

    How about:
    It was my turn earlier to go in but I let others go in first as I had not received my medical report.
    Now I have got my report so it is fair that I go in.
    I am not a teacher.
