I'm going to gripe, and complain, and air my grievance. I just got back home from a trip to another fabric store here in town - the name begins with a J, and rhymes with Schmoann's, just to keep things anonymous. I'm doing a job making cushions, and wanted to buy a zipper by the yard to get more exact measurements, rather than the pre-packaged zippers. I also needed to buy the zipper pulls and stops, and I've never assembled a zipper before, so I stopped the 1st employee to ask if she could help, and she said "I don't sew, I'm just a stock clerk" (hmmm, I remember her cutting my fabric and ringing me up on previous visits before.) I attempted a joke, saying she needs to wear a sign as an employee there, saying 'I don't sew'. She didn't find it humorous.
The next employee at the cutting counter I asked responded, "I've never sewn zippers." Fair enough.
The cashier, though, was the icing on the cake. She rang me up, asked if I had a coupon, and when I said no, I left it at home, looked at me with complete disinterest and said "Bummer". I asked if she might have an extra one somewhere behind the counter. Her answer, with even more disinterest: "Nope."
You all have my permission to blog about me, or Jen, or Heather, if any one of us ever says to you in a disinterested tone of voice, "Bummer", when you don't have a coupon at our store.
