I need 12 feet of café curtain and I want this one.
That is the last of it and there isn’t 12 feet left on it.
Yes there is…there’s more.
Sorry madam that isn’t the same
Yes it is …look.
Pains taking pointing out of the differences.
But it is the same...look.
Except for these features.
Oh…so you are saying it isn’t the same.
Well I’ll have 12 feet of this one.
Can I just ask how wide your windows are ?
Will you want the curtains to be riffled? Gathered? Wavy?
If you only buy 12 they will hang flat.
No they won’t. They will be gathered.
Not if you only buy 12 feet.
Things deteriorated from then on as it turned out she had several windows, the stuff she had chosen seemed to be double hanging stuff and needed 2 rods or it could be divided….and THEN the poor girl had to explain how much all over again.
If the silly old bat said “but what I’m getting at is…..” one more time I would have had to throttle her with the café curtaining there and then and be damned but died a heroine to the Spotlight Staff.
I couldn’t stand it so I decided to forgo the material I kind of wanted and thought I’d just go to the front counter.
WHY DIDN’T I JUST DROP EVERYTHING AND LEAVE????????
In the queue behind ANOTHER old duckie who thought that if she wanted to use things for Christmas that made them 40% off…no matter what it was and no matter where in the shop she got it.
Long explanations and pissing about for about 10 mins…yes I’ll have that, how much is that , no I don’t want that one, but can I actually have that one, are you SURE it isn't 50% off? AAAAAARRRRRRRHHHHHHGGGGGGGGG
Then she said she had forgotten to bring her discount voucher but the girl could just give her the money off.
More wrangling before she finally left.
I think I need to not go there again for a little while. Or drink heavily before I do.
And a picture of a not helpful Caramello sitting among the debris on the end of the bench. She had just been trying to eat the fish in the tank.
