Me: Can I try these shoes on in a size ten?
Old man: Size seven?
Me: Um no, size ten please
Old man: But you are a size seven?
Me: Um. No, I'm a size ten. I have big feet.
Old man: But you, small person. Small person... small feet, yes?
Me: I usually wear a size ten.
Old man: I'll get you size seven.
(watches me valiantly attempt to put tiny shoes on)
Old man: Those are too small. You have very big feet. I get size ten now.
