It is good to have a nice humour like this with the tailor. Did he take an espresso with you at least?

No he didn't ... but I did take him out to dinner! However, I think he just got around to sending me a copy of the book his partner has just written.

In truth ... he's a friend and a mentor.

Also service business persons have sometimes difficult client, for example funny story man who string tennis racquet at tournament string racquet for Goran IvaniÅ¡ević, Goran not like the tension quite correct because he fancy himself so sensitive to tiny difference in tension, stringer say come back half hour I will redo. Man was so busy also with other racquets for other players, forgot to redo racquet for Goran, but Goran come back after half hour, pick up racquet, hit stringbed with his hand, said, "Sound good to me, thanks" without realize that racquet string is the same! Sometimes believe it or not tailor and other artisan make like this also, sometimes intentional, sometimes not. Much thing of perception is only in person's mind and can be fixed without making real change to object.

Which hostel did they provide?
