A man from Peru decided to visit America, although he spoke no English. Upon reaching it, the first thing he did was go into a department store. He
found his way to the menswear department where a young lady offered to help him.
"Quiero calcetines. [I want socks.]" said the man.
"I don't speak Spanish, but we have some very nice suits over here," said the salesgirl.
"No, no quiero trajes. Quiero calcetines. [No I don't want suits. I want socks.]" said the man.
"Well, these shirts are on sale this week," declared the salesgirl.
"No, no quiero camisas. Quiero calcetines. [No, I don't want shirts. I want socks.]" repeated the man.
"I still don't know what you're trying to say. We have some fine pants on this rack," offered the salesgirl.
"No, no quiero pantalones. Quiero calcetines. [No I don't want pants, I want socks.]" insisted the man.
As they passed the underwear counter, the man spotted a display of socks and happily grabbed a pair. Holding them up he proclaimed, "Eso sí que
es. [Now that's it]." (GCFL: This sounds like spelling "S O C K S".)
"Then why didn't you just spell it in the first place?!?" yelled the salesgirl.
