Ví dụ
The incident was captured on the couple's security camera, which showed a male in an Adidas sweatsuit enter the homeowner's white Dodge pickup truck and rummage around for a few minutes. He got out, walked over to the Acura and got inside.

But it’s not just that people are rushing to the local bike shops to purchase or rent bikes, though that is part of the equation. When the global pandemic shut down much of the manufacturing sectors around the world, disrupting the production of everything from processed (xử lí) foods to bike parts, it created a scarcity (khan hiếm) of bicycles and bicycle components at the same time that it propelled millions of people to rummage around for their bike helmets, and head to the nearest shop for a new bike, rental or a tune-up for their own bike.

Three o’clock in the afternoon. It’s the time of day that sends many of us into a downward spiral (xoắn ốc). Our energy levels crash. We rummage around for biscuits or chocolate in the work kitchen. We scroll mindlessly through Facebook or Instagram. We basically do anything except for the thing we are meant to be doing: work.

Who can return alone to another haunted house after dark, climb down into a forgotten well (cái giếng) where the bones of the original ghost have been found, and rummage around for more clues.
