The other day, I was on a mission to get my work shirts. It turns out that for work I need to wear a white shirt and khakis on Monday, polo shirt with school logo-Tuesday through Thursday, and Friday I can wear what I want(within reason)…nothing too revealing(no short shorts, nothing low cut).
So anyway, I did not bring a single polo with me because I didn’t know I would need them. The school supplied me with 2 shirts, but wanted enough to last for a couple weeks. I don’t want to have to go to the laundramat everyday.
I took a taxi there and had no problems getting there…once I was there, it was a whole other story! You wouldn’t believe how long I was there!
I “tried” to explain to the lady that I wanted more colors in the shirts, but I needed a ladder or stick thingy(to grab the hangers). I didn’t know that they grabbed more in back. SO, I figured out she was asking what colors. I forgot a few of my colors in Spanish, but got the point across.
It was amazing to me that the very same shirt, but different colors was a different length. I told her about this and she was like “no se?” She didn’t know why there were like that. I had to ask her to take some shirts back. We went on and on for a LONG time 🙂 I’m very lucky she was so patient. It is awesome how you can explain what you want, even if you don’t know all the words and the other person doesn’t speak the same language! She also told me that if I buy more shirts then other shirts would be cheaper. She wrote it down and I got it! I don’t know if I have ever been so happy to run an errand and accomplish it! I felt so proud that I did it all by myself! 2 hours later I had my shirts, just teasing! I’m not sure how long it was, but it wasn’t a quick errand!! The pic below is what my shirts will look like when they are finished embroidering them!! Yay! By the way, I got a sweet deal at Optima…it was about $4.50 per shirt…
