shop assistant: “So, you want to decorate the living room?”
shop assistant: “And where will be located the television? I suppose a 50″ flat screen, the room is so big!”
me: “Sorry, but no television in my living room, please. Just a samovar, a Flos lamp, a Tulip chair and a comfortable sofa. Books, tea, silence…nothing else matter.”
A moment of embarassing silence.
shop assistant: “No, maybe you haven’t understood. I repeat: where will be located the television.”
me: “Sorry again, but is you who don’t understand. No television at all!”
shop assistant: “Oh my God. And how can I decorate without television? It is not possible!”
No country for old Guido. I do not like television, I like books, tea, silence and Bahaus furnishings.
