A Conversation with the Idiom: At Worst



Jim: Why are you crying?

Stacy: I've lost my pocket-book

Jim: I'm sorry to hear that. Where did you lose it?

Stacy: I don't remember. I was carrying so many shopping bags and I'm not sure if I left it on the train.

Jim: Did you call the police?

Stacy: Yes, I did. But they said they cannot do anything about it and suggested I report to the credit card companies. I have reported to credit card companies to cancel all my credit cards and replace them.

Jim: Did you have so much money in it?
