I will probably take this post down later after I think about it, but I am just ticked off and need to vent. A couple of weeks ago, Hancock's had a 99 cent (or maybe) it was $1.99 on their McCall's patterns. I went to get several of the new patterns that had come out, and they did not have them. WHAT?!?!?! I drove 1 hr, 10 min to get there as that is the closest Hancock's to me. Although I love my small town, I live in podunksville---we don't even have a movie theater. Well, beginning tomorrow, McCalls and Simplicity will be on sale for 99 cent and $1.99 respectively. There are 6 McCalls I want and one Simplicity. I live about an 1 hr, 10 min away from my nearest Hancock Fabrics, so I just called them on the phone and explained to them that because I live a distance away, could they go and look to see if they have these pattern numbers before I drive all the way over there. The CS Rep said that everyone was cutting fabric and could not go look, so I should call back tonight and someone might be able to go look. WHAT?!?!?! Don't you think she should have said that when she gets a chance she will go look and call me back? It is not a long distance call. She was nice, but just not very helpful. GRRRRRRR!!!!! It almost makes me want to just order online and forget the hassle, except that they are so much more expensive. Whew---thanks for listening. I feel better.
