Afghanistan Interaction 1.1: The Seamster

A conversation with a local who makes custom patches and sews.
Me: Hey man, can you repair torn uniforms?
Him: Yes Sergeant. What is broken on uniform?
Me: I ripped a hole in my pants. Need them sewed up.
Him: I have time now. You take pants off and I fix now!
Me: What? Right here? How much?
Him: Yea, right now. Take pants off and I charge you 5 dollar.
Me: Hey dude, if I’m taking my pants off in your store, you gotta pay me 5 dollars.
(I did not derobe in his shop. I just brought the pants to him the next day)
