X-Mas Shopping in Germany

You won`t believe this: Everybody is moaning about the bad economical situation in Germany – especially the bad turnarounds during the x-mas time. Well, my girlfriend and I went to a shop in cologne and wanted to buy some red socks we saw behind the glass. The friendly salesman told us, they would be the last pair they have in the shop. We said: it´s ok. – we take them. But guess what: he wouldn`t sell them to us! Just because it was the last pair! As long as Retailers have this freedom, our situation can`t be that worse!
