Fun with Jobs

Oh NO!!!!! I've had to sit on that damn counter for the past two days. And today. And tomorrow. I really don't know how I'll be able to stand it at the night job. Now, really it's not the most taxing thing in the world, I just have better things to do. I will say it's frustrating, no matter what job, when the customer (or guests, as we call them at the night job) won't believe simple facts you tell them. (Do you like my painting? I made it two years ago. It's called Bad Work Day)

customer: "can you fix this?" (pulls on torn plastic/vinyl bag)
me: "sorry, not really. We'd have to build you a new purse. That material is rotting."
customer: "you can't do anything? Not even glue something over it?"
me: "It's won't stick. That material is rotting."
customer: "but I don't understand. So there's nothing you can do? I mean, this is a Chanel. It's not a real Chanel, but I'd like to keep the bag. You can't fix the leather?"
me: "It's not leather. It's vinyl. It's rotting. I'm sorry."
customer: "Can I speak to Terry?"
me: SIGH

Oh boy, do I look forward to today. If I'm lucky I'll get my green leather in (finally) and maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to finish my wholesale order. I was really wanting to be 100% done with it by this weekend. Darn it. Now I'll have to furiously speed through my IN box on Monday.
Want to see a new cuff bracelet?Somebody needs more coffee..... and that somebody is me.
