2004 10 06 - I Don't Have time for This!

I was out spending money I don't have on a new light for some upcoming shoots.
I was really excited because I have this whole set up planned out.

Anyhow, I got to the store and had a hell of a time finding this particular light.
Then, I had to wait in line for what felt like an eternity just to pay for the damn thing.
So far no big deal right?

I get home and tear through the package like it's Christmas morning.
I grab the instructions and get busy putting it together.

Right away I notice something's wrong.

I'm missing a damn piece!

So now I have to go back to the store to see if I can get this whole thing sorted out!

Back at the store I'm served by this wonderfully charming brunette.
You know, I don't meet enough brunettes.
But I digress.

After she had taken care of my missing piece, I gave her my card and told her she should, "Give me a call sometime"

She asked, "Oh, do you have other missing pieces?"

To which I replied, "No, but I'm hoping to" and giggled nervously.

She just stared at me and called out, "NEXT".

Oh well, I was almost a satisfied customer.
