Wednesday Whine Fest
Wowser, do I have something to whine about this morning. Went shopping to Walmart last night. I don't buy a lot of fabrics there, but for bandanas it's a great place. Low cost fabric makes more profit for me. Well, they had some doofus cutting fabric. Never saw her there before. And there were signs everywhere that all regular priced fabric was 50% off. Where are all the regular fabric cutting girls, I asked. Oh, she replied, they've been moved to other departments because we are clearing out the fabric department before the big remodel in July. Walmart in all it's wisdom has decided that we don't need our fabric department any longer. So, once it's gone, I'll have to drive about 25 miles to the nearest Joann to get affordable fabric for my dog bandanas. After waiting in line behind only 2 people for 25 minutes, Doofus finally was ready to cut my fabrics. She had called for help 3 times and no one responded. By the time I left Walmart, I had quite a headache. And to top it off, the cashier was ready to leave for the day and we were her last customer. So, we unpack our groceries at home, and there's a bag missing. About $30 worth of stuff was in that bag -- it was toiletries. I called the manager this AM already, and she told me the bag was turned in and is at customer service. So a bad shopping experience at least has a happy ending. And, the fabric I bought was only $2.00 a yard and that yields about a 1000% profit on this batch of bandanas. Now I'm off to cut the bandanas. Have a good day.
