Working in retail.

Post by nka » Thu 02.26.2009 9:15 pm

Hi everyone. I live in Hawaii (all my life). Normally there's a lot of Japanese tourist here and I am in need of finding a job. My Japanese is rusty and I forgot what to say when working in retail. Such as phrases dealing with money and phrases like "kashigomarimashita" & "sho sho o machi kudasai". Well If you guys have tips please tell me. I know how to speak a little to converse about stuff here and there, but i just forgot what things to say in a retail store. Thank you =)

It's "kashiKomarimashita." The verb is "kashikomaru" and is a humble "I understand."

The other is "please wait a moment."
