Expensive Jeans in Costa Rica
- Here's a true tale from a couple of months ago. A friend of mine has a
store which was selling some (to me) very expensive men's apparel. He
too was somewhat baffled by how Ticos could afford them as they
certainly were selling.
One day he found out. Three young men came in the shop and had a long
discussion about one particular pair of trousers.Watching them and
unable to avoid hearing, he recounted this story to me.
One of the young men tore a piece of paper in three and wrote a word
on each. These were folded and each of them took a piece in turn.
What was that all about? It was the best way to decide which on of
them got to wear the one pair of trousers on Fridays, who had them on
Saturdays and who on Sundays. True friendship.
Me? I'll stick with the Ropa Americanas thanks very much!!
