IELTS Speaking topic: Waiting for someone

Describe an occasion that you waited for someone.
You should say:
who the person you waited for
when you waited for the person
where you waited for the person
and explain why you waited for the person.

Let me talk about an occasion I waited for my colleague in the airport, which happened in April. I was planning to take a business trip with a colleague. In that morning, I woke up early to get to the airport where we agreed¬†to meet. I took a seat in the cafe bar in the airport and waited for him. One hour soon passed, but he didn’t show up. I was beginning to worry a bit then, hoping he would not forget the business trip or wake up late. I made a telephone call to him, but could not put through, which made me more depressed. I had no ideas but made another telephone call to my superior and told him about my current situation, he told me to fly alone if my colleague didn’t get to the airport in time in the end.

To my surprise, after I hung up the telephone, I saw him entering the gate of the airport slowly. I asked him why he came to airport so late. He just said he never hurried to catch the airplane, and told me that I should take easy. Oh, I doubted whether he lived near here. I really didn’t want to go on a trip with him next time.
