Cross Stitch Rant

I may have mentioned this cross stitch a few hundred times, here goes 101. The kit did not come with enough of one color. Over Christmas I went to Joann's to see if I could match the color from the number listed on the pattern, no luck there. I called the company, 15 days later I got a package with the thread in it in the mail. It was the wrong color. I fumed about it, then called again. 15 days later another package arrives. Wrong color again! I mentioned it here, those are my P.O.ed eyes. Finally, I called again, trying not to sound annoyed. The woman who answered listened to my story, then asked if I'd like to wait 15 days for the thread to come or if I wanted the DMC number so I could go to Michael's and buy it myself. Seriously? Why did the other two people not suggest that? Did they think I would want to spend 39 cents on thread and they would save me the agony? Needless to say I was annoyed. On a recent trip through Concord I forced Charlie to stop so I could buy the thread. It took me about 48 seconds to find the right color and it cost me 39 cents. Now I am working on the cross stitch and watching "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" (I just spelled Philadelphia correctly on the first try, go me!)
This is a mirror image because I am lazy and took the picture with my computer.
 It doesn't look like I've made a lot of progress, but I swear I have. 

I don't know what the moral of this story is, maybe it's that if you want something done right you should just ask for the DMC number so you don't have to waste 2 months of your life waiting for the right thread color.

Hope you're having a good Sunday.We are not watching the Super Bowl.

Do you care who wins?

Feelings on "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"? (drats, spelled it wrong that time.)
