Raincoats

Wednesday, June 22, 2011





Last week, I went to Tesco near my house to buy a raincoat because I've been riding my motorcycle to work often lately and I'm worried that I would be soaked if suddenly rain comes pouring while I'm riding... I went around the store a few times in various sections and I couldn't find what I was looking for... Therefore, I went to one of the staff and asked, "Bang, baju hujan kat mana?"... 

At first, he stared at me like he had no clue what I was talking about... Then, he asked me to follow him... He led to the men's clothing section... "Pakaian lelaki semua ada kat sini...", he said before leaving me...




After a few seconds of pondering, I thought, maybe that guy wasn't kidding... So, I roamed around the clothing section looking for a raincoat... I searched the whole section... I found no raincoat... I tried looking for another Tesco staff and found a woman... Since she seemed like a senior staff, I thought maybe she would know where the raincoats were... 

"Kak... baju hujan kat mana?", I asked politely...

She smiled at me and was silent for a moment... I thought she was trying to process my question... Then, she replied... "Baju t-shirt band Hujan?"

........

I explained to her that I was actually looking for a raincoat... The one that is used during rainy days... She giggled and let out a long "Laaaaaaaaaa...." and "Akak ingatkan baju penyanyi Hujan tu......."...

She took me around the clothing section and after a few minutes, she told me that they don't sell raincoats... Funny I always thought they have everything in Tesco...





After that, I went to the nearest 7 Eleven and they too didn't sell raincoats...
