Me: Bonjour, I was in your shop today and I lost my gloves. Have you seen them?
Storeperson: Gloves? What colour?
Me: They're green! They have no fingers, they look like crocodiles, with teeth. I really love them.
Storeperson: One moment please.
Me: Okay! I really hope you find them. I bought them in Paris four years ago. They're irreplaceable....
Storeperson: Madame? I am sorry. We have not seen your glasses.
If you see anyone wearing these gloves, they're mine. Thanks.
