    Putting The Dire Into Directions

    | Berlin, Germany | Geography

    (My department store doesn’t sell all the ranges of clothes that the chain produces. However, there is another store just 200 meters to the left that I always tell people to go to when they are looking for an item we don’t have.)

    Customer: “Do you have these shoes in [size]?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, we don’t have any in stock, but if you can’t find your size here you could try the other store, which is two hundred meters to the left.”

    Customer: “So, I go out and then to the right?”

    Me: “No, the store is just to the left.”

    Customer: “How far is it?”

    Me: “As I said, just two hundred meters from here.”

    Customer: “How am I supposed to know? I’m from [another big city nearby].”

    Me: “Yeah, but two hundred meters is the same distance in that place as it is here.”

    Customer: *sighing* “This city is just too big for me!”
