One Friday lunchtime I had to change some money - as usual US dollars for roubles - and went to a kiosk in a building on the main pedestrianised street in the old part of Nizhny, Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street.

There was a queue of about half a dozen people also waiting to change their dollars, Now queuing is something that the English (1 ) ,.. (do) when they have to but we tend to think how to avoid the queue - usually find another place or later time.

This time I (2) ... (save) by a young man who (3) ... (suggest) that if I wanted to change a few dollars we (4) no (can) do it quicker outside in the street.

1(5) ... (follow) him outside and gave him the two $50 notes, While I (6) ... (wait) for the money I (7)... (tap) on the shoulder by another young man who (8) ... (explain) to me that it was a slightly dangerous practice to change money on the street.

1(9) ..0 (embarrass) by this warning, and now (10) no (want) to get out of this situation as soon as possible, I (t 1) '" (turn) to the chap and he returned the money immediately and went down the street. I stuffed the money in my pocket and (12) ... (go) in the other direction to find another place to change my cash, But when I (13) ... (take) the two notes out of my pocket 1(14) ... (see) two one dollar notes! I might have saved ten minutes but I (15)... (lose) nearly $100 instead and all because of my own stupid greed and impatience.

1(16) ... (still wonder) where to seek help when I (17) .., (see) the two chaps who (18) ... (take) my dollars. I (19)... (come) up to them and asked if they wanted me to explain the story to the militiaman who was a few metres away. They quickly handed me the two $50 notes - which this time I (20) ... (check) before pocketing them.

I was so glad to have my greed rewarded with some great luck that I gave them back theIr two one dollar notes - so they could catch someone else out? I don't know why!
