Friday Funnies

Howdy fellow bloggers - I've been on a loooooong hiatus! Hoping to get back into the swing of things very soon. Thought I'd make my welcome back debut with a funny little story.

I was at unnamed large-chain fabric store this morning to get some interfacing cut. The store was empty as was the fabric cutting desk. The woman behind the desk was busily working on something while acting like she didn't see me. And the conversation then went like this...

Me (politely, I swear) - "Can I have some fabric cut please?"
Woman: "Did you take a number?"
Me (while looking around at the empty store): ""
Woman: "You need to take a number"
Me: "okay" (and proceeded to pull a number from one of those number dispensers you see at the deli)

The woman looks up at the big red computer display that shows the numbers (it's showing number 97...guessing that was her last 9 pm last night!). She then walks over to the phone and announces to the entire store "NUMBER 98...NUMBER 98"

REALLY??! I (again, very politely while looking around for the Candid Camera hidden camera) held up my little number showing that yes, indeed, I am customer 98.

This is why I do most of my shopping online.

Hope you are all having a fabulous Friday!



  1. Hi Susan!

    I too have very hit and miss with blogging:( but thanks for the comment!:)

    Busy with making button bouquets for weddings!! no time to blog!

    anyhow, hope all is well, glad you are back into the swing of things! Summer always brings busy schedules so you are lucky for diving in again!

  2. Susan, how funny, it's just like that at my local big fabric shop, too. It's amazing that you can often get a more personal fabric shopping experience online than you can in person!
