Why JoAnn's?

Ok, over the last few days I've been noticing a trend of people getting down on good ole Jo's..and maybe this will make me unpopular, but, I think that they are getting a bum rap.

Don't like the long lines? Ok, I get that, who wouldn't prefer to get in and get out. but think about it, EVERYone is tired of standing in lines, so that employee that was not especially outgoing and cheerful?

Well, what you don't realize, or rather, you might if you thought about it, is that she has been on the floor for 6 hours, with every single face she sees complaining about the fact that their craft store is busy enough to justify staying open, and taking it out on her.

She is the Single Mom who got 2 hours of sleep last night because the baby is teething, and you are upset because her smile wasn't bright enough and she wasn't being :friendly: enough.

She is the grandma who just loves to talk crafting, but has been snubbed by the customer before you who couldn't be bothered to get off her cell long enough to communicate clearly what she wanted...and then blamed the employee for not getting it right.

She is the human who has been dealing with crownds of people so worried about getting a deal that they are rude, obnoxious and in some cases violent..and they get minimum wage. No Hazard pay..and if they are lucky they might be able to pay their bills.

So next time you've been in the cutting line for a few minutes, take a look..see anyone resting? I didn't think so.
