So the story starts with me going to JC Penney. I haven’t been to the store for a long time now. In fact I haven’t bought a dress for myself for more than a year (gifted dresses are not included). But this fortunate day, I was having a bad day (hell, I am having a bad week). Anyway, I was running around finishing some errands and was getting nothing done for one reason or the other. So when I stopped by the shopping mall for yet another errand, I decided to visit JC Penney.
So I was wearing a pair of jeans and in the jeans pocket I had an 8GB pen drive. I spent around 3 hours in JC Penney, trying out new dresses (I didn’t buy anything that day: I am so proud of my self restraint). When I reached home, my pen drive was missing. My 8GB pen drive was missing! Did I mention I am having a bad week? I had almost no hope of finding it back but my room-mate suggested that I should go and check: Just in case someone returned it to Lost and Found.
So next day, I went back to JC Penney. After looping 2-3 times the store, I finally found the customer service center in a corner of the store (Get it, the center was in the corner? Okay it’s a stupid joke. I am shutting up now). I approached the lady on the counter. She wasn’t too old. I think she must be in her 50s. Anyway, I approached her and told her that I lost my 8GB Pen drive in the store the previous day. She looked up and asked, “What is a pen drive?”
I stared at her for a moment. The lady near to the counter peeped out of her rack and gave me a smile. I strutted and tried different names for pen-drive but she remained clueless. I tried to explain how it is used with computer. Surely she must have seen it somewhere, I thought. But with no luck. Finally she asked me how it looked like? Well small rectangular thing, black in color. It has a cap too. Its such a non-descriptive thing. How do I explain to someone who has never seen a pen-drive what it looks like? However, she checked her lost and found drawers and didn’t find any small rectangular black thingy. I didn’t expect it to be there, anyway. Didn’t I mention I am having a bad week?
…And then I went and bought 2 tops and a pair of shoes (running shoes: I needed those. Honestly).
