Double Ooops

After buying up loads in my local independent store, I popped into the chain store we have locally, the one that has things for Hobbies and for Craft.

I got some bits on sale, but the best bit was the entertainment.  The sales assistant cut me three lengths of Hungry Caterpillar fabric, and each time he picked up the scissors and put his thumb through the large handle section and his fingers through the small handle section, and each time he complained how bad the shop scissors were.  I was biting the insides of my cheeks to stop laughing, so I couldn't even speak to suggest holding the scissors the other way

Great entertainment, not so good staff craft skills or staff recommendation for their own products.  Good thing the prices and reductions were good!

  5. This is not a criticism - we all need bargains and entertainment - but this is why we need to use our specialist shops, craft and otherwise, isn't it? An employee of a craft shop who can't use scissors, I haven't laughed so much since I asked for a pizza to be half with extra cheese and half with mushrooms and the assistant told me she'd have to fetch someone else as she "never was good with fractions".

  7. Great story.

    Love the story about the pizza too.

    Reminds me of going through a drive thru for a drink...i ordered iced tea. When I pulled to the window to pay my bill and collect the tea the teller asked if I wanted salsa with that. I smiled and told her that I would take my tea plain thanks.
