We were out and about on Saturday, so I decided to stop at Jo-Ann Fabrics to see if they had the new Denyse Schmidt fabrics in stock. They did, and at 30% off too! I spent some time making my selections and had Pete carry them over the the cutting table. I was shocked to see that there was quite a long line, but at this point I decided to stick it out and I got in line.
There was one teenaged boy working the counter, and he didn't seem to be in a hurry. The people around me in line were all in the same boat and everything was fairly civilized... until the nasty lady arrived. See, we were all waiting in line like well behaved citizens -- they had a little "take a number" machine, but apparently the guy working the counter wasn't using it. After all, there was a line and that was working out okay (although slowly).
This woman comes up after we had been in line for about 30 minutes, takes a number and demands to be taken care of before all of us. Seriously?!?! She is going on and on -- making a big fuss. Talking about systems being in place and how they must be used. Good lord! You almost had to feel sorry for her, she was so horrid. In fact, it was getting very uncomfortable and those of us who had been in line for so long were just trying to ignore her for the most part.
Eventually I got my fabric cut (not before the guy's price scanner/printer went dead -- it was quite an ordeal). I love the colors in her new line, and am planning some sort of zig zag quilt which I will hopefully start soon.
And next time, I think I'll buy my fabrics from Jo-Ann's online. I don't think I can hack the intensity at the store!
