English Test- 9th Form- n1 A Shopping Adventure

One day, by the time I woke up, I decided I was going to buy a sweat-shirt. But I didnt want to spend too much money so, I only took 15 in my wallet. Buying a sweat-shirt doesnt seem very hard but, believe me; it was really hard as Im going to tell you now. When I arrived at the shop, I asked the shop-assistant: -Could you please tell me the price of the cheapest sweat-shirt you have? Shop-assistant: - Its this blue one. Its very beautiful and it only costs 19, 5. I: -Well, it seems Ill have to go to another shop because, as I dont want to spend a lot of money, I only brought 15 Shop-assistant: -No, you wont have to. We can think of a solution. I: - Oh, yes. That would be great but whats the solution? Shop-assistant: - Well, you can take the Sweat-Shirt, give me the 15 and paying the rest next time. I: - Are you serious? Shop-assistant: -Yes, I am. I can see how hopeless you are and Ill do you this favour. I:-Oh, its very kind of you. Shop-Assistant: -It would have been, if I hadnt turned behind. I: - What did you say? Shop-Assistant: - I said I turned behind. I: - Does that mean youre not going to allow me to take the Sweat-Shirt? Shop-Assistant: - No, it means you can take it for free. I: - Oh, even though youre being very nice, I cant accept your offer. Shop-Assistant: - Why not? No one has ever perished on grounds of 19, 5. I: - Well, Ill take it. And congratulations on being the nicest shop-assistant Ive ever met. Shop-Assistant:-Thanks! And that was how my shopping adventure was. Since that day, the shop-assistant and I have been the best friends. And I hope our friendship will never end.
