- Too expensive.
I waited for the shop assistant to answer, and he said "That t-shirt costs ¥50,000" I was shocked! I had to repeat "¥50,000! That's very very very very expensive!!!" He looked confused and replied "That's right, but this was Michael Jackson's t-shirt" .
I was shocked, so I said to the shop assistant "I can't afford that, and I don't really like Michael Jackson" He looked a little confused, and realised his mistake, "I'm sorry, I will get a new one!" he said while running off into the back of the shop. I decided to look around the shop by myself while I waited for him to come back.
I found a cheap green t-shirt so I took the t-shirt and placed it in my shopping-basket. I started walking towards the register so I could buy the t-shirt. "What do you think about this t-shirt?" I heard from behind me. The shop assistant had returned with another t-shirt, so I told him "Thank you, but I have already found a t-shirt that I like", he nodded and walked back to the back of the shop.
After he left, I placed my shopping basket on the counter and the counter-staff took the green t-shirt out of the shopping-basket, scanned it's barcode and read the price out to me "¥108 please" I paid using a ¥1000 note so she gave me ¥882 in change back, and then she handed me the receipt.
"Thank you, please come again" she said while handing me a plastic bag with my new t-shirt in it. I started walking home and while I was walking; I thought about some recent events. So I decided to write about some of those events in my diary when I got home.
