Recently I was talking several ladies about something on the Internet, then one, who has a computer, but rarely uses it, says:
" I can't be bothered with all the computer stuff, I have a life!!"
I've heard several ladies say that, but it's funny how, if they need something, they're quick to ask you to find and get it for them.
Reminds me of people that always ask (even tell) me to crochet something for them, even ones that can crochet themselves. They usually try to butter me up with high praises before they go in for the kill!!!
People must think that, since I either crochet or be on the computer a lot, I have the time and will do whatever they want. Like I don't have anything else to do, and they're giving me something to do.
And they wonder why I get pissed!! HELLO!!!
Most times, I just don't say anything. I mean, what would be the point. If you tend to think in terms about people that they're "only as good as they're good for"....then they just won't get it.
I just smile, grit my teeth, and push it out of my mind.
But.....if they bring it up again....LOOK OUT!!

I stopped in to my favorite LYS:
Jane's Yarn Shoppe
1707 E. Passyunk Ave (near the corner of 12th & Morris Sts)
Philadelphia, PA 19148
The Crochet Friendliest LYS in Philly!!!
The 'Lustre Sheen' Queen!!
If you're looking a more crochet friendly place, there's none other than Jane's.
And,if you're coming, plan to stay awhile!!!
Make sure you bring something to snack on, 'cause you're gonna have a great time.
She's been a great friend for over 15 yrs. She carries all types of yarn at reasonable prices(and we need those more than ever, right?).
Looking for Lustre Sheen? Well, she has the best supply in town.
So, stop on by. Tell her I sent you!! ;-)
