I went up to Salt Lake to visit one of my friends, and while i was up there we decided it would be fun to run to get some fabric to sew some purses.. So we went to the closest fabric store, Joanna's, and picked out our darling paisley covered material, then Hali decided it'd be a good idea to get an extention cord for her sewing machine so we could sew on a table. Good thinking, right? So we thought.. hey maybe Joanna's has some--lets find a worker and ask?.. okay.

We wandered the store for a few moments before finding a lady wearing the Joanna's smock and a nametag, so then Hali politely asked, "Excuse me, may I ask you something?"

*The following is not made up. It really did happen*

The lady, I kid you not, PLUGS her ears and says "Nuh Uh!.. No.. NO. mm mm..." (just went on and on.. ) ...and We, thinking she was joking,(because who does that in real life?) just asked if they had any extention cords.. She turns, looks us in the face, holds up her finger and is like "NO. I will not answer any of your questions, I am on my break!" (she was pretty peeved that we would ask her to help her while she was [looking like she was working] on her "break"..

I thought it was pretty hilarious that there are really people like that in the world. I felt bad, though, because Hali was pretty distraught over it. Sad day.

Is it bad that I kind of enjoy awkward encounters with people? They make me smile a little.

or maybe encounters with awkward people is the more correct way to say that...
