レストランで忘れ物をしたことを伝えてみよう

Picking up something you forgot
レストランで忘れ物をとりにきたことを伝えてみよう。
First of all, why are you going back to get your umbrella? They're so cheap these days. But if yours is an expensive one, or if it means something special to you because it was a gift from someone, then do whatever it takes to get it back. And be more careful the next time it rains. まず最初に、なぜ傘を取りに戻るのか。最近傘は安いものです。でももしあなたの傘が高価だったり誰かからの贈り物で何か特別な意味を持つのだったら、なんとしても取りに戻りましょう。雨が降ったら次回は気を付けて。
