Hallo!

Sometimes (seldom, luckily) I have the feeling that I do enter a shop, I ask for my size 42 (IT!!), black colour, no frills etc. etc. and they propose me a red dress, size 44 because large is in fashion.

Just a goodnight thought.

Paola

People don't understand me any more? Is it the result of 15 hours work?

Shukra!

Alas, some askers are poorly served in KudoZ. But after a while you'll get to know who's reliable.

wow, I'm inclined to move to Italy now.
Here, in PL sizes usually are 36-40, unless you want to buy clothes from the mens department...


And, seriously, if your post is a continuation of the recent heated discussion about limiting/ suggesting a limitation of answerers to KudoZ questions (and I believe it is), my reply is:

let yourself be offered the variety of dresses, maybe you'll like one in the end, even though red suede dress with tassels never actually was on the top of your list

regards,
Agnieszka

No, it's not
It's just a feeling I had when posting a couple of questions.

Dzien dobry z Wloch!

asker doesn´t have to be necessarily a customer Sep 15, 2005

but a co-translator, co-seller and can also be a customer. Your syllogism is interesting. Best Brandis
