Sample 1 Describe a Time You Had a Disagreement With Someone
At some point in life, we would all have time to disagree with someone because it is part of life. This world would be boring if everyone were always on good terms. Several times, I have disagreed with people, but I would like to talk about my recent disagreement with a friend. My friend believes that all problems in Nigeria today are caused by Nigerians, while I perceive that the government is the culprit.
He said the problems result from selfishness and failure to be contented with what we have, which I see as a wrong view. I let him know that the government has failed us in many ways. Firstly, they always make ridiculous budgets for each sector at the beginning of the year. We have never recorded any success in these sectors, for example, the security and health sectors.
Also, they travel to developed countries to enjoy themselves, but they never once make an effort to make the country a better place for the citizens. Therefore, the citizens, on the other hand, do whatever they can to make ends meet since resources are not evenly distributed. After expressing my view, he reasoned with me, and we both agreed that the citizens and the government have a role to play in making the country good. We were happy that we could meet in the middle and decided to play our part in solving the country’s problem.
Sample 2 Describe a Time You Had a Disagreement With Someone
Well, people usually disagree with others when they do not have a sane perspective toward the thing. Subsequently, it raises the situation of disagreement. Today I would like to talk about a time when I had a disagreement with one of my bosom friends during my college days. I vividly remember when I was in the first semester of college .one day, my best friend Arsh insisted I bunk the college.
Because he wanted to watch the movie with his favourite actor, but I did not like his idea. Then I suggested she get permission from her parents instead of bunking the lecture, but she did not agree with my opinion and forced me too much. When I clearly denied her then, she became angry with me. Honestly speaking, I could not go as my parents are very straight, and if they came to know about the bunk from college, they would never trust me again.
Apart from that, I do not want to miss my important lecture. We had, and one is, a long discussion on the negative consequences of bunking the college, and finally, she agreed with my viewpoint. I also promised her to watch the movie together on a forthcoming Sunday, so that was a time when I had a disagreement with one of my close friends and resolved it happily.
