It's then I remembered.....they call it a washroom. I think they had no idea what we were asking. When in Rome, talk like the Romans....
When in Rome, talk like the Romans...X 2!
Many years ago, when I was looking for a "cooler" in a Kentucky department store I asked a clerk where they where.......he was stumped... so he sent us to a gal at the service counter.... she didn't know what I was talking about either... so she summed the store manager.
The manager said, "they don't ship/sell coolers east of the Mississippi".
After I explained to that 3rd hillbilly that I needed an "insulated box to put ice, food and beer in".... he said, "Oh, I thought you where looking for COORS BEER".
It turned out that I didn't want a "cooler".... what I wanted was an "ice chest"!
I bought an "ice chest" and used it as a "cooler" until I repaired my malfunctioning refrigerator.
BTW, I also bought 2 quarts of "engin all" from the same store!
