Am I a Salesperson or Counselor?

A mother-daughter shopping couple was in need of some design advice for holiday wreaths and garlands. I was helping them, and eagerly we started picking out color schemes and all the stuff to put the decorations together. We began with the basics, and then went to our gorgeous ribbons.

They disagreed on which one went best with our designs. Things started to get heated between them—downright mean, even. I tried to find a ribbon they both liked, but the whole experience turned out to be way more than just the ribbon. All this anger and crazy talk started, and I just quietly disappeared into the store.

Still—oh my gosh!—they found me, and we tried to continue shopping. After two hours of helping them I felt like I needed to put out my “10₵ counselor is in” sign. No one was smiling, so I tried to help them with humor. When they were close to checking out, I asked them, “OK, I know who is going to pay for the Christmas decorations, but who is going to pay me for the counseling session?!” There was a giggle from them, and they replied, “We have already paid for that! Many, many times.”

“From now on, just come to Paul Michael’s for some retail therapy; it’s cheaper and seems to work!”

  1. The grid can usually be mounted at different heights. Unlike any
    other types of grill, like charcoal grill or a smoker grill, you must clear all the woods and charcoal each time
    you clean it. Another big difference between a portable grill and a regular one is that the portable grill uses a small propane cylinder rather than a conventional five-gallon propane
    tank.

  2. To keep the wood piece from moving when you are using a miter gauge, cut to shape and glue a piece of sandpaper to the face of the miter gauge.
    You now have a table saw dust collector that costs
    you less money. If there is a difference in the two distances, adjust the saw accordingly.
