Am I the only one who thinks the attention span of customer service people is getting shorter? Particularly those in the fast food industry. When I order a tea, I usually say black tea, medium, leave the bag in, please, and it is to go. The reply? Anything in it? No, black please. What size? Medium. Here or to go? .
I know they have to punch it in and I know they are trying to be accurate but, really, could at least a couple of things that I said not be remembered? I have resorted to just standing there and replying to questions. Less frustrating and quicker in the long run.
Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy but I sometimes feel that people (to quote my hubby) aren't getting their fair share of oxygen.
On a cheerier note: I finished another small project today and started on another. They are both made with Island Batik fabrics. Cheers a person up just looking at them. I also got a good start on the magazine article that has to be sent in by the end of the month. I really do work better with a deadline looming.
I have mentioned previously that I am a member of the Burk's Falls Art and Crafts Centre. We have a Facebook page and if you would like to see some wonderful fibre arts, creations in glass, paintings and many other items that will gladden the heart, take a peek.
For some reason, our rail fence seems to be attracting critters lately. A few days ago the owl I photographed landed in a tree beside it. This evening, a pair of deer were peering over the rails. I didn't see them quickly enough to grab my camera unfortunately.
We have been getting a mixture of weather today. It was raining in the morning which turned into freezing rain, back to rain which froze again and, finally, snow. We have a few inches added onto the ice. It does look pretty and we hadn't planned on going anywhere so we were snug. I felt bad for those who were out on the roads though. Many people in this area drive quite a distance to get to work. Didn't see or hear of any collisions so I hope everyone made it safely back home.
