Tony went to the tailor to collect his made-to-order suit. He immediately noticed that the arms were too long. When he pointed it out, tailor Yassin said, “That’s no bother, just pull them up at the elbow and hold them in the front. You look fine now.”
Tony next pointed out the collar. “The collar is way above my neck.”
Yassin the tailor had a ready solution. “No problem. Hunch your back up and it will look just fine.”
Tony said, “But I am stepping on the hem!”
Yassin the tailor said matter-of-factly, “That’s no bother, bend your knees just a bit and it will be just perfect.”
Tony, with his body twisted awkwardly, steps into the streets.
Two girls saw him pass by. One girl said to the other, “Did you see that poor man?”
The other replied, “Yes, but what a fine-looking suit!”
