Little Cuts Of Understanding

, , | Right | April 24, 2020

I am working on a sewing project for which I need very small amounts of a very large number of different fabrics. On this trip to the fabric store, I am very excited because I have found SEVEN fabrics that will work. I go up to the cutting counter a bit hesitant, putting seven bolts of fabric on it.

Me: “You are going to hate me, and I’m really sorry, but I need a quarter yard of each of these.”

The employee behind the counter dies a little inside.

Employee: “Hey, [Coworker], I think it’s time for my break.”

I saw the lady he called over also die a little inside, but she cut my fabric and we had a good conversation while she did it. I apologized again when she had finished, but she laughed and told me that’s what she was there for. She was right, but I still felt bad.
