I’m not a jewelry-wearing type of person. What pieces of jewelry I would wear for the wedding was the least of my concern. I was asked by a friend once what I would wear and I said, “Probably none.” E wala naman akong alahas, no!
It was only when Vidson asked me to pass by the jewelry shop (I forgot the name) in MOA that I got interested. Libre daw e! So, why not? He wants to give me one pearl daw each year (sana lang matupad!), so that when we’re both old, we’ll have a long string of pearls na. (Sa totoo lang, hindi naman ako mapili…tumatanggap din ako ng diamond!)
Anyway, I liked the pendant from those that were on display so we asked the saleslady if there were earrings to go with the pendant. She showed us a pair which were too small. Hindi bagay sa size ng pendant. The lady told us that she could ask if the other branches had them. She said, it would, however, take 3 days to get the stock. We told her we’d only buy those that day or never. (Taray!)
The two salesladies looked at each other and the other one went inside a room. When she went out, she showed us a pair of earrings that were close to the size of the pendant! She told us they were already reserved for one lady but asked me if I liked them. I did! So she assisted me in putting them on. As fate would have it, the lady who reserved the pearls came inside the shop right after I put the earrings on. The saleslady whispered to me, “Ma’am sya po yung nagreserve. Wag na lang po kayong maingay na ngayon nyo lang binili iyan. Sasabihin na lang po namin na kanina pa nabili.”
I was scared. I was ashamed. BUT…I really liked the pearls! I left the shop wearing the earrings and the necklace with the pendant (take note: with tag price pa ha!) and left Vidson to take care of the payment, etc. immediately when I heard the lady becoming upset while she was told that the earrings were taken much earlier that day. She asked the two salesladies to explain why they sold the earrings to someone else when she already confirmed that she’d be back for them…or why they didn’t bother to send sms to her. Well, for what it’s worth, the ladies sent her a text message to the number which she left to them…unfortunately for her, the number she gave them was wrong. Luckily for me, the two salesladies sold the earrings and the pendant to us.
