Dual Compression Shorts

Rob and I went to the Reebok, Adidas and Nike outlets today to find some new shorts for Rob. We were at Adidas and Rob found a pair that he liked. After further inspection, we realized these were "dual shorts" or "compression shorts". We didn't really know what that was but I looked around and saw an employee a few feet from where I was, standing by the door next to a big rack of basketballs, playing with a basketball, looking bored. Well, I decided to put this guy to work!

"Can you tell me what dual shorts are?" -Me to guy

"Are they training shorts or basketball shorts?" -Guy

"Umm..well we got them from this I guess they are training shorts." -Me

"Well, there are two kinds. One kind keeps your junk in place and the other type keeps your leg muscles warm." -Guy

"Aw, ok, Probably not what I'm looking for." -Rob

"Thanks for your help!" -Me

As we walked away I said, "he said junk!"

I thought it was kind of funny that he said junk - probably not the most professional thing to say.

"Yeah, I don't think he works here." -Rob

We looked over to where he was standing and saw him walking out the door with his buddy. For someone who didn't work there, he sure did know a lot about athletic shorts.

That is HILARIOUS!!! The guy was probaby thinking...'ok, great, I'm getting hit on by a 6-months pregnant chick...' - or something. At least you didn't do what I did when we first moved to Morgan Hill and I wasn't familiar with the grocery store...I was in a hurry (you are ALWAYS in a hurry when you have your hyper little kids with you who are pulling everything they see off the shelves and throwing them into your cart). So when I saw a guy stocking the shelves I asked him if he could tell me where his nuts were...ummm...LONG time before I returned to THAT store!!!
