My most achievement as a shopgirl

On Friday night, two classmates and I went to Gap, Shinjuku. It was 30% sale and it also was 9.30 pm. The shop had to close at 10. I wanted to buy one beautiful down jacket for my Seoul trip during Xmas, but it was 24,500¥, too expensive even I got price after sale around 18,000¥. As time run by, we, who cannot speak or read Japanese, asked Gap staffs if there would be another ways that we could get more discount or not. One staff told us to apply for Gap membership and then we would get more 30 % off ( one 30% for members and another 30% for that day’s promotion. But the truth is that was almost 10 pm, it was last day for sale campaign, and it took time for people who cannot read Japanese to apply for membership. Anyway, three of us refused to give up (as housewives rule number one), then we logged on to registration link, typed many info in so many pages which were written in Japanese. And finally, after failed for two times, we succeeded in the third try. It was 9.53 pm, as we run to cashier counter, the Gap guy asked us how could we; as foreigners, know this trick to get 30% + 30% discount. We said that we just asked ( and tried to guess in Japanese.). Then after all, I paid for the most beautiful down jacket from 24,500¥ deducted to 12,200¥ (around).

If I have to write an essay describing my most achievement in life, I would write about this story for sure.

Don’t you think of it as an achievement in life, huh? (Forget those UN moment, this is too way better than that, trust me ><‘)
