I had two big items on my list - an instapot and a tv (for the bedroom). I scored both in the first 15 minutes of the sale while twitter was telling me that Amazon was broken. HMMMMM. The TV was $199 yesterday and $129 today. (In fairness, it was $159 the other day so probably will be at least that in a week or two.) The InstaPot (this one makes me feel like a cliche.) was $99 and I got it for $59. (It was $89 a couple of weeks ago very briefly.) So I feel like I did pretty well. Oh and I got $5 for buying a $25 gift card (for me).

I sewed up my swimsuit. I need to trim the seams but I can do that tonight while I watch TV.

Then I went up the street to get a sandwich and stop at the fabric store. The sandwich place took 35 minutes to make my sandwich (while I stood there and waited) and then got snippy when I asked if I was going to get it any time soon... this was at 11:20. I'm guess those who went at noon are still waiting. I'm sorry to cut them off cause they just started taking Google Pay so no cash needed! Oh well.

So when I got to the fabric shop I was not that happy a camper and the snippy little clerk who always treats me as a giant annoyance was on duty. And... she treated me as a giant annoyance. Plus they did not have the two things I needed - despite the class instructions saying that all the supplies would be available in the shop and please do buy them there. I tried. I did. But, now I was doubly annoyed.

I came home, ordered what I needed on Amazon and then wrote the shop a Please Don't Treat Me Like A Bug You Want To Stomp On email. I wasn't heavy handed but explained why I was buying my class supplies at Amazon and also explaining that about half the time I'm in there, my customer experience is not good. I got a reply from the snippy clerk that was kind of snippy. And then, not much later, I got a reply from the owner. The owner's reply was much better than Snippy Clerk's. I ended the email by saying that I was bummed but would be in high spirits by the time the class rolled around and I was looking forward to it. So I have no qualms about going. But unless I am desperate with no other choices, I will not be shopping in there when Snippy Clerk is on duty ever again.

My Insta Pot gets here tomorrow so I went to the library and downloaded some Kindle Instant Pot cookbooks. That's so handy. I need to remember to defrost some chicken tomorrow morning.

I think I'll get started on the swimsuit trimming right now and get that checked off the list. I have some Great British Baking Show to help the trimming process.
