Today I am showing you my latest sunglasses and shoes that I got at Gucci in Luxembourg. I wanted these items in pink but they were out of stock. So I went for black instead.
The sales assistant greeted me with a ni hao and she was quite nosey. I had so many ni haos in Italy recently (they are outweighing the konnichiwa). I'm tired of having to explain that I don't speak Mandarin, nor Japanese. She told me that she was of Chinese origin (who cares) and asked me about my ethnicity. Then she wanted to know what I was doing for a living. She went on to question me about the brand of my shoes and my handbag. I was a bit surprised that someone who works in fashion was not able to recognise the fairly obvious stuff that I was wearing.
At the end, she disappeared to wrap up my purchases. Meanwhile the cashier was merging profiles that I had created in Milan and Dubai and I had to provide additional personal information. By then, they knew quite a lot about me. When the sales assistant returned with my items, I asked her to unwrap the bag and the shoe box because I wanted to be sure that I was going home with the correct size. Guess I can be a pain as well at times.
