“A Spanish man who spoke no English went into a department store to buy socks.

He found his way to men’s wear department where a lady offered to help him.

‘Quiero Calcetines” said the man.

‘I don’t speak Spanish, but I have some very nice suits over here. said the sales girl.

‘No no quiero trajes, Quiero Calcitines’, said the man.

‘Well these shirts are on sale this week’, declared the girl.

‘No, no quiero casmisas, Quiero Calcitines’. repeated the man.

‘I still don’t know what you are trying to say’, We have some fine pants over the rack. offered the salesgirl!

‘No no quiero pantalones. Quiero Calcitines’, insisted the man.

‘These sweaters are top quality’ salesgirl suggested.

‘No, no quiero sueter, Quiero Calcitines’, said the man.

‘Our undershirts are over here’, fumbled the sales girl beginning to lose the patience.

‘No no quiero camisetas. Quiero Calcitines’, the man repeated.

As they passed the underwear counter, the man spotted a display of socks and happily grabbed a pair. Holding them up he proclaimed:

‘Eso si que es!’ (Yes, that is right!).

‘Well if you could spell it why didn’t you do that in the beginning, asked the exasperated salesgirl.
