Thursday, Well I never!

     Last week a customer came into the shop with 3 pairs of jeans to hem.  She also had a coat that was her husbands that she had grabbed out of the car as she realized it had a hole under the arm.  She appeared to be a rancher.  She smelled like a rancher as in kind of a silage cow smell.  Not off putting, just that smell of working around animals.  I thought nothing of it.  But my shop continued to smell like animals.  As the days went on I started to look for this smell.  It was okay, but whenever I walked by her pile the smell seemed to be worse.  I checked it out but could find nothing.  Finally I got to her work and I picked up the jacket again.  It reeked.  I decided to hurry and get it done and then bag it so I would not have to deal with it any longer.  As it was ripped out under both arms, I had to get into the lining and open the coat up.  When I put in on my lap I about passed out from the stench.  I realized there was something in the pocket so I pulled out............  A bag of doggie doo, doo.  All wrapped up in a cute little pink plastic bag.

I immediately dumped it out side and decided to wash the coat and then hug it to dry.  I had to fumigate the entire shop.  People please check your pockets.  Unless there is money in them of course:)

Have a great and productive day, staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. That cracked me up. I might have thrown up - I cannot stand that smell! One of my orders that I was cutting last night made me keep sneezing. After I got up, I noticed there was cat hair all over me. Good Lord. I am so allergic to cat hair. I love them, but I cannot be around them long. I am still sneezing today! Neti pot, neti pot - oh, how I love thee.
