Sales hit the clothing stores last week. Unlike the UK and other western countries, the sales here in Riyadh are still real sales with real bargains to be had.
In Philippines I learned what it is to be “Terry”, as in “Terry Tight-arse”. A “Tight-arse” is someone you need to sedate before you part from their hard earned cash.
As I’m careful with my money and I shop around to make sure I am getting the best deal as far as I am concerned to be “Terry Tight-arse” (as a man) or “Teresa Tight-arse” (as a lady) is something to aspire to, not something to be ashamed of.
As mentioned previously the shopping system in Saudi Arabia is unique. If you are so inclined you could wear your new clothes for a week with the label concealed and still take them back for a refund (I haven’t done this yet, honest). This system provides exceptional opportunities to be Terry.
I’d therefore like to extend my congratulations to the Terry in Go Sports last week. He had bought a lot of sporting clothes from the store without knowing the sale was starting the next day. My friend was standing behind him in the queue as he returned the clothes and got his refund…. and then immediately grabbed the clothes back from the cashier and bought them back at the sale price.
