As reported before, the local shop was supposed to call me to tell me if they could get a chart. I heard nothing from them. So today I went back. They asked if they could help me. I explained I was the one looking for the chart - the one you were supposed to call back. She knew nothing about a note. So I was waiting for a call that was never going to come.
So I came home and later called the place I thought might have the chart - they said they were super busy - could they call me back? Sure.
I see a trend here.
I don't have a problem with them taking care of the customers in store first. I am sometimes that customer too. But I don't want to be that lost note again. I had given her a list of three patterns I was hoping she had - so she could look before calling me back. I said I was understanding and just call me back when things calm back down a little. I understand.
And she DID call me back. She had the first chart I was looking for in her hand. She had the second chart I was looking for in her hand. I was pretty sure the other one was out of print - and she didn't have it, but will check. And because I was getting some charts, I asked if they would get me a chart that came out just yesterday. Sure.
So the chase is OVER. I am not going after old charts anymore.
I have noticed I have one new issue lately. It seem to be messing up on details. I typed my own email address wrong in an order for instance. I messed up a designer name - today. I messed up noticing the thread count before cutting the material yesterday. Nothing deadly, just little things. But it seems to be repeating - and repeating things are usually something I should notice. So I am not sure if it is just things not falling my way - and that would be normal. A good run, then a not so good run. But I usually get details right - so this feels strange. And if I am noticing just the odd things I have messed up - I wonder what I have really messed up and have totally missed.
