Police Officer:What happened?
Vanessa:I just got mugged.
That guy stole my purse, jewelry, camera-all of my valuables!
Police Officer:Were you wearing flashy jewelry and carrying an expensive camera?
Those are big enticements for muggers.
Vanessa:I didn't have anything on that was flashy and I was minding my own business.
Police Officer:Well, you should never go out alone at night, and if you have to, stay in well-lighted areas.
Traveling on dim streets makes you a target for thieves.
Vanessa:Thanks for that insight.
Police Officer:Can you describe the person who mugged you?
Vanessa:No, it happened in a flash.
I didn't get a good look at his face, but I'm sure it was a man.
Police Officer:It's a good thing you weren't hurt.
You should probably learn self-defense in case it happens again.
Vanessa:Thanks a lot. I think I've had as much advice as I can take in one night.
凡妮莎:谢谢 。我想自己一个晚上已经有了够多的此类经验 。
Are you going to do anything to find that mugger?
Police Officer:Sure, I'll file a report, but don't get your hopes up.
Vanessa:Believe me, I won't.
