I had some time to spare after dropping the comforter at the cleaner's, so went by the fabric store where i used to work to look around. i happened to run into one of the older ladies that i worked with and found out that she and the other older ladies are all being phased out by the new manager who is hemming and hawing about how they're not flexible enough or something. odd that it's only the older ladies? and apparently, the manager even slipped up and said something about their age. can you say lawsuit? though i don't think it would be worth it to sue over a minimum wage job that requires lots of manual labor working for that particular manager.

but then again, the lady i was talking to is getting a lot frailer and her hands shake due to the medications she's on for her serious health problems.

how do you ask someone with buckets and buckets of experience to retire gracefully? especially if you're replacing them with younger people who don't even know how to sew.

so that's why I'm torn. besdies it's about teh fabric store, so seemed appropriate.
