    Dinner conversation w/Monkey Man.....

    Him - Do you remember how to do the blind stitch for hemming?
    Me - Yes.
    Him - ....said nothing.
    Me - Why?
    Him - Well because Tiffany wants some pants hemmed and I told her I would do them.
    Me - :wheels were spinning but I said nothing:

    Want to guess who did it? I could not believe they had four staples holding them in place!!! Who does that?

            This is too funny. Maybe the poor girl was never taught to sew??? Or was that just a temporary fix until she could get you to sew it for her..

              That was the excuse I heard when she picked them up.

                    When I was working, I had one of my young ladies come to me and ask for help.... what did she need? Well, the duct tape on her skirt hem was sticking to her hose and they were getting all twisted. She asked what she should use instead of the duct tape until she could buy a new skirt!

                    ummmm a needle and thread? Wasn't the only thing a sewed while working there.....<<<shaking head>>> evidently they made a whole lot more money than I did if they could afford to buy a new skirt ......

                      Or lived the True American Lifestyle of putting EVERYTHING on a credit card.

                      When we were young and brand spanking new working, my boyfriend (now hubby) worked with a young married man. This young married man was trying to help his equally young wife how to budget. She was under the impression that if there were checks in the checkbook, it was OK to use them.

                      That's just morphed into whether or not your credit card is declined.

                      Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

                        She got a lecture when she came to pick them up. I told her not to do that again. She asked what she should do then......I told her to sew them herself or use scotch tape!! hahahahahaah!!!

                          Umm... yeah, well, about that.... I MAY have been known to use staples or masking tape a time or two, but I was a teenager!!

                            I got to work one day and noticed the hem had come out of the back of one leg. Darn tootin I put 2 staples in it. Of course, when I got home I repaired the hem. Can't go around with staples in your pants!!

                              Never gave staples or tape a thought. Since I have made my own clothes since I have been about 13 or 14 IF a hem needed repair and that was not likely it got a safety pin til I got home. Now elastic that was another story. I always wore dresses to work when I was fabric manager. I use to make my own slips, usually a split skirt slip because I often had to climb the ladder. One day...back in the day when we ran earlybird specials only once a month and we were busier then bees. My manager and I both cutting as fast as we could. We finally got a min to breathe and she looked over at me and I thought she would pee her pants laughing... I said what ? She had all she could do to point at my feet through tears and laughter...sure enough there was my slip around my ankles... LOL good thing we were so busy I didn't have to move, probably would have broke my neck tripping on it. I casually stepped out of it and stuffed it between the cutting tables... we laughed so hard that day.
