Contoh Anecdote Text

Snake in The Bath

Abstract
How would you like to find a snake in your bath? A nasty one too!

Orientation
We had just moved into a new house, which had been empty for so long that everything was in a terrible mess. Anna and I decided we would clean the bath first, so we set to, and turned on the tap.

Crisis
Suddenly to my horror, a snake’s head appeared in the plug-hole. Then out slithered the rest of his long thin body. He twisted and turned on the slippery bottom of the bath, spitting and hising at us.

Reaction/Incident
For an instant stood there quite paralyzed. Then I yelled for my husband, who luckily came running and killed the snake with handle of a broom Anna, who was only three at the time, was quite interested in the whole business. Indeed I had to pull her out of the way or she’d probably have leant over the bath to get a better look!

Coda
Ever since then I’ve always put the plug in firmly before running the bath water.
