“You don’t want a TV? Are you sure?”
We are looking for another house to rent for November. The house we were visiting had a TV in the living room that was almost as big as the room itself. The landlord’s son likes to watch it with friends and pizza.
So we said we wouldn’t mind if he took it with him. Hence the surprised exclamation.
It reminded me of the list we were given with the basic things to know for the car:
- how to start
- where the brakes are
- how to handle the gearshift
- how the radio should be operated
With a similar reaction when we said the latter is not important.
Giving us again evidence for the fact that Spanish people like their noise.
