Nothing against them in particular, I really mean just to say that I hate crowds, and I really hate them in department stores. Know what I hate even more? Adding a bunch of Hebrew I can’t read well yet, put me in a situation where I’m having trouble finding what I’m looking for, and subtract all the people around me who could possibly help by speaking English.
This is what happened when I looked for sheets in Dizengoff Center on Friday morning before Shabbat. My bed is a little smaller than the most common size in Israel. I did this to maximize space in my smallish bedroom. But it made finding the right sized sheets a bit more difficult. I had the hardest time explaining the “top sheet” (vs. fitted sheet) concept to several salespeople. Apparently, in Israel it’s all about fitted sheets + duvets/covers. They skip the top sheet. WTF? Not me.
Anyway, finally got sheets, but they are little too big and I’m returning them.
