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 rack...so 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.
