Maybe it's because it's the 13th...

But today was not a good day. First of all when I got to work, I couldn't find any of the products I needed to fill the holes in my department. (I forgot to mention that I work in a retail store). I mean not one product. While I was looking for the various products, I looked over to the paint department and saw the 2 cans of paint that I mixed for a customer yesterday was still sitting there, so I had to send them to our once a week clearance centre.

The day went on, helping what seemed to be really picky or demanding customers. Then at about 4:40 local time, a male customer came up to me and a co-worker (who were having a "safety meeting"), and asked us which hair trimmer we thought was the best. He said that it was for him and that his wife was going to buzz his head. So I suggested on of our "better" brands, and he decided to take the most expensive. Then a few minutes later I was paged to the paint desk. It was the same customer. This time he wanted a portable DVD player from lock-up. I proceeded to follow procedure, while sort of. I took it to the till at the auto-service, because he said that he was also paying for some tires. Normally I would have taken it up to either customer service or to the main tills. So then at about 4:55 the auto service cashier phoned me to tell me that the customer stole both the items. That was it, I just about lost it. I turned out that no one at that enterance has a walkie-talkie to do the code for theift. So I called my manager and told her about it and gave her the codes for the products.

Hopefully that will be the end of that. There was one indecator that I should have noticed though. He did have an oversized bag from another store that didn't seem to have much product in it. I know I'm human, but I still should have noticed.


Okay, back to crocheting realated posts.

It's WIP Wensday.

Currently I am working on...
1. The infamous crocheted monkey for my step-daughter. I'm still thinking I will never get this project done.
2. The knitted poncho for a christmas present. Still no more yarn for that project, so no progress either.
3. The Diamond and Lace poncho. I have to buy more yarn for that one.
4. The Blue Jean Shawl. You guessed it, I need more yarn.
5. And finally... The crochet tote bag that I am designing. So far I've made the back and the bottom.

That's it for today

Sounds like you had a very stressful day. Take it easy... some nuts are out of our control!

Yeah it was. People tend to get crazy on the 13th of the month or on a full moon.

I just glad that today was better.
