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.
