More of America's funniest glass stories
Thank you to everyone who continues to send in their funny glass stories. It is such a great way to start the work day. A few more for your reading pleasure...
The bedsheet pattern
I walked by my cutting table this morning, and my guy is cutting a custom tabletop from a bedsheet pattern a customer gave us (see picture). We warned the customer, who said, "Do the best you can." ...
'I nailed it good!'
A lady came in a couple of months ago and needed to order a mirror. As she was waiting for the mirror to be cut, she told me why she needed it. That morning, as she was putting on makeup in the mirror, a mosquito landed on it. Being like many of us who are human targets for mosquitoes, she gave the mosquito a smackdown, breaking the mirror ! It cost her about $60.00 to replace as I remember, but her response was: "It was worth every cent. I nailed it good!"
Two pieces of string
We had a customer come in and hand us two pieces of string. They told us to cut a piece of glass to the length of one of the strings and to the width of the other. They never came back, so I guess it fit?
And my personal favorite...
A woman came into our showroom and told my receptionist that she shops at Nordstroms and they have skinny mirrors in their dressing rooms, so she wanted to purchase one from us for her home. My receptionist wasn't quite sure what she meant so she asked me to intervene. I asked the woman if she meant the mirror was narrow in width. She said, "No, it makes me look skinny." At that point, I felt like I was in the same position as when my wife asks me if her new pants make her look fat.
Thanks for sharing, and please keep the stories coming. Have a great week!
