It seems like every time I go into my local Joann's store, someone is complaining. Not enough people cutting or checking out, coupon issues, (someone went ballistic today because the 50% coupons don't pertain to sewing machines), among other things. While I was in there, I commented to the manager that I was surprised that it wasn't more crowded, being a saturday near Christmas and all. She replied, "Oh, it was, you just missed it and everyone was complaining about something." I said, "I believe it, I've never been in a store where people complain so much." She comes back with, "before I started working here, I always wanted to help little old ladies, be nice them, open doors, etc. Now all I want to do is take them out in the parking lot and run over them." hahahahahaha

That gave me a real chuckle. Just what I needed!

Who, in their right mind, would think a 50% off coupon could be used on a machine?

It even says on the coupon that it can't be used on sewing machines, cricut machines, sergers, cabinets and lots of other high-dollar items. Customer was still mad as hornets so the manager finally said, "Look, I don't set policy, I just work here. You'll have to call the corporate office to complain."

Funny, sad. Sad, funny...... I enjoyed the chuckle.

The store manager won't need to run them over in the parking lot; that will be accomplished by the husbands picking them up. I have cautioned my graying hubbie that he Is Not to become one of those old fellows that are so intent upon picking his wife up at the door that he is oblivious to all else.

I forgot to mention that the store manager was no spring chicken herself. I don't judge ages very well but I'm guessing between 60 and 70. I'm 51 so I'm no spring chicken either.

Made me laugh! When I go to Joann's I make sure I have plenty of time and just stand there and smile while I wait in line. Most people are complaining about the lines, etc., and I just give them a big smile. It really miffs them. I, too, am no spring chicken at 61 but am quite happy I have lived this long and am healthy. The rest is just an added bonus.
