ME: "Do you know if your rug is hand-made or machine made?"

Customer: "It's man-made"

I have had that exact conversation more times than I can count. :hopeless: I would love to tell them back, that all rugs are man-made.

And yet as I type this, I guess an animal skin wouldn't be man-made. :dejection:
Made by a man with a machine.

She was very intimidating...

As best as I can see, she started off not liking you and how you were doing it to being in love with the unfolding result to being miffed with you for being unkind about her soap and house cleaning skills.

Are you losing your lady-killer charm with age and exposure to your new high desert mindset, or was she just a nightmare customer?
