I went to the store today. I use alligator clips for my jewelry making. I needed more as I seem to only have one left.
I lose them sometimes.
I lose things sometimes.
Including my mind -- but that was from another era ;-)
Now it's just lost.
With the gator clips.
The last package I bought, I got them to support the blasted pull up shades on my custom van. Yes, almost all the strings broke, so I'd just get frustrated & clip the darn shades to the up position & be done with it. Well today, none were to be found. I'm walking the aisles in the hardware, electrical, automotive & fishing departments of the store.
Not even one thing will do for what I need.
So I find someone that drags me over to all these same departments. The same ones I've already gone over with a fine tooth eyeball 3 times already. But hey, they work there, they know, right?
So then he hooks me up with another sales man...yep, I get dragged down the same freaking aisles. Again. But this time, the associate also has the front of my cart as he's dragging it along with me hanging on. Oh fun! I wondered if I could jump into the cart & get a free ride! But then I realize what I'm looking for, so maybe he'll think I need it for other purposes. But I would have been wrong. None of these people know what the heck it is I'm looking for! So I say ROACH CLIP!!!! Um, hey, that didn't work! They didn't even blink an eye. I just got blank looks. So I guess that really qualifies me as an old fart now.
So now they are all probably having a conversation of the weird lady that likes to put clips on roaches....
............I'll spare ya'll & will refrain from hunting up a roach picture....
Just put it in your imagination - that should do the trick. Have a nice day!
PS, I use clothespins on my shades in the RV to keep them up or down. I wonder if store employees know what they are??
Nah. Not gonna ask.
