    Re: Dinner conversation w/Monkey Man.....

    During Mystery Dinner Theater, we've been known to have to use staples and tape a few times. My heel caught on the hem of my dress as I was walking off stage - almost tripped and fell. So we used tape to hold it in place. Another time, we had an actor get put on bedrest the day of the fourth night so we stapled the outfit in a couple of places to make do for the night.

    Oh, you gals have given me a good laugh this afternoon and I sure needed one. I've always fixed things for everyone, including the neighbors, but once my darling father called and asked me to shorten a pair of his good wool dress slacks. I told him I'd pick them up after work. When I got to the house, I saw the hems full of holes and asked what the heck happened? He sheepishly said he knew I was busy and wanted to help me..............so, he took mom's scissors and tried to cut out the hem so it wouldn't take me too long to fix! The hem section was full of holes from cutting!

    I told him, if he wasn't my father that I would have beat the crap out of him and NEVER, EVER try to help me sew again!

    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.

    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!!

    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!!

    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!!!

    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.

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

    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..
