cat, galloping

oh man, there is NO WAY i could do your job!


Oh, how I wish I had been there to see this! TOO FUNNY! And at the same time, not funny at all... That lady totally got what she deserved, and you are now a hero to those two customers! Two birds, one stone, and one juice box: yay!


I'm glad you unloaded on CCL. They have to know they can't have it their way all the time.


jesus, i worked as a caseworker for welfare in the biggest county in ohio for 25 years and i would rather do that then to work retail. i actually did have a partime job in a hardware store for a few months and let me tell you, i hated that job more than i can say. i had nightmares about it while i was working there.

Oh my!! I can't believe people think they can haggle like that?? Am I the idiot who's never realized you can do such a thing with clearance items at a store? I mean, a flea market, sure, but at a fun little shop like yours? Come on! Glad you let her have it. Hope you enjoyed the wine.


Oh, Man. I HATE retail. I don't know how you managed to stay sane. My brief stint in restaurants during college just proved that I am not a customer service kind of girl.


Oh man, I don't envy you. Isn't it strange how all the weirdos turn up during festivals and such? You should really write a book on this, it'll be really entertaining. =D


Does wine by the juice-box come with a straw?


Wow, people never cease to amaze me! Sorry about the wallets...you just never know what people are up to! I could never do retail, I'd go crazy within days, if not hours! I once had a neighbour convince me to have a garage sale. OMG, it was painful! I'd have a $200 item on sale for $5 or $10 and they'd offer me $2... I told more than one person I'd rather give it to charity than sell for that. I'd rather pull out my fingernails than ever have another garage sale. The stuff now goes straight from my house to a worthwhile cause! Think I'd do well in retail?lol



Ahhhh... you should have reminded me that your sale was this weekend. I would have come down to haggle you as well! Heehee! Just kidding... I would never do that as I am in retail myself.


That is hilarious! And CCL totally deserved it!

I never haggle. If I don't want to pay the listed price, I don't buy. I've seen some pretty mean hagglers at garage sales though!


PlEeEase tell me you have video surveillance at the store. I would so love to see you going off on the CCL with the finger wagging and the head bobbing and all! Sound or no sound, it would be great. I'm sure we could lip read some of the stuff.....


Ditto....if you have video please post!!!!!!
That's why I couldn't do what you do.
Customers, clients ...they are all one big pain!


Oh too funny. I wish I had seen you go off at CCL, I think I would have bought something like that other lady just for watching you go off at her.

She deserved everything she got, I think I would have gone off at at her too.

I have always wanted to start up my own craft shop, but after reading about some of your escapades, I don't know if I could do it.

Oh and I would love to see video footage of it too!!! :)-


People are un-freaking-believable. So glad you went off on her. Possibly it will stop her from harassing you next year? Nah. Probably not. ;)

You know there are countries where haggling is the tradition, but when I last checked Canada was not on that list. When I worked retail it always amazed me how big some people's balls were. Sorry for the shitfestival you had this week. Hopefully you made some $$$ to offset the craziness. Oh and wine juice boxes? Sounds like therapy to me.


Ok, I am so sorry this was a hard day but I am laughing my pants off. Used to work retail and ugh...it never changes does it? Hope tomorrow is better!
