You should say:

Where you received this call
What you were doing at that time
What the call was about
And explain how you felt about the call
I usually prefer to talk to people in quiet and convenient places. And I have also had some annoying experiences of hearing people around me chatting for a long time, but I recently had a time in which I had to make a call in a public place and I was thrilled to receive the call. A few weeks ago,on a Sunday, I took a taxi to pick up my friend. I took my wallet out to check for something and probably just conveniently left it on the seat. When I got out of the taxi, I was in such a hurry (很匆忙) that I didn’t check everything. I didn’t even realize I had forgotten the wallet until I was in the café with my friend later that day. I had the taxi receipt with me so I immediately called the company to see if they could reach out (联系) to the taxi driver. Usually, I don’t pick up phone calls with unknown number, you know how most of those calls are cold calling companies. That day, I was anxiously looking at my phone all the time in case I missed any. After around 20 minutes, I got this phone call with unknown number. I picked it up immediately. That was the call from the taxi driver telling me he has my wallet. I nearly cried out, cause I have all my important IDs and cards inside it. I moved to a corner table so that I wouldn’t disturb people sitting near us. He checked some information with me and told me he would meet me downtown later. I was lucky to get this phone call that day and finally get my wallet back as it saved me a ton of hassle (很多麻烦). Still, I think it is important to follow simple rules of cell phone etiquette (电话礼仪) in public.
