    Now that you're out of the building what do you do then? Do you head straight home or do you stop somewhere for a beer?

    There are already plenty of details, but OK.

    Two things. One, please note the changes to punctuation. Two, please start a new thread for another paragraph.

    Re: After finishing my job

    Did you notice that in post #16, I used the words "help you to find it" rather than "to look for it"? You are already looking for your motorbike. You need to use the key in order to find it.

    "look for" and "find" don't have the same meaning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Not even close! (Somebody once asked me to "look for" something when she really wanted me to go get one.)

    Yes "look for" and "find" definitely have different meanings.

    It's more natural to simply say "I got it after looking online".
