Today, I went to PetSmart to purchase crushed walnut shells for pincushions. The bag was huge so I asked the clerk if they had a smaller size (they didn't) but I mentioned it was way more than I needed as I wasn't housing reptiles. When she asked what I wanted it for, I said for pincushions. Pincushions???? Obviously, she hadn't a clue what I was talking about. So I explained, you put needles and pins in them. Oh, do you knit?? No, said I. I'm a quilter. Immediate response: Oh, my mom does that - she crocheted a huge blanket and she lets the dog sleep on it.

I smiled, paid, and walked away with my 10 quarts of crushed walnut shells.

She was a really nice young girl - just totally no clue. It really threw me that she had no idea what a pincushion was. :lol:

ROFL. We do need to keep educating and definitely keep our sense of humor. Thanks for sharing this funny story.

My daughters have an answer to that problem - when you run into someone who is so clueless, they tell me to 'just smile and nod'
