I spent 9 hours at the knit shop yesterday with the boss and a friend. We moved things, cleaned things, built things, took things apart. We put things on sale, pressed things, and brought in new product. We removed furniture and brought in new. We vaccuumed alot. We forgot to eat, and later in the afternoon were amazingly grateful for tuna subs. I was there for 3 hours this morning, and figure it will be another 5 or 6 before we're done.
A few people came into the shop during the 3 hours our shop is normally open. The shoppers were happy and want to see how it comes out. People who come to sit and knit without spending any money, however, were out and out rude. I was so defensive of MaryAnn! I was shocked that people would speak sharply to her because they couldn't sit around and knit and drink coffee. Of these able-bodied women, do you think anyone offered to help? Of course not. It was Halloween, so maybe it was the phase of the moon. I hope so.
