Woman comes up with two Silhouette fabric transfer rolls and a coupon. 

“I’m sorry, we can’t use coupons on Silhouette.”

“But its a competitor coupon.”

“We’re not supposed to use any coupons on them.”

“The other store said that I could if I used a competitors coupon.”

“We’re not supposed to use any coupons on them, its our policy.”

“Well, your competitor doesn’t have that policy, and I’m using THEIR coupon.”

It doesn’t work like that. It never works like that. “We can’t even use their coupons. The reason they don’t work on Silhouette items is because they set their prices- we don’t. They have their own sales and if they find out that we’re overriding their prices they can pull their product from our shelves and we won’t be able to sell them anymore.”

“The other store said it was okay.”

And people say Millenials are entitled. 


More quick picks/recs from our new YA shelves: we have terrific new books in…plus some equally terrific books (both new and recently released) to read after you’re done! 

If you loved The Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard, and you’re looking for another book in which latent supernatural powers kick off a killer fantasy series, try:

  • The Sin Eater’s Daughter, by Melinda Salisbury
  • The Young Elites, by Marie Lu

If you loved The Winner’s Crime, by Marie Rutkowski, and you’re looking to delve into another established high fantasy series - especially if you love Game of Throne-ish political intrigue - try:

  • Gathering Darkness, by Morgan Rhodes (#3 in the Falling Kingdoms series)
  • The Heart of Betrayal, by Mary E. Pearson (#2 in the Remnant Chronicles, July 2015)

If you loved When Reason Breaks, by Cindy L. Rodriguez, and you’re looking for more books in which literature has an important effect on the characters, try:

  • And We Stay, by Jenny Hubbard
  • Belzhar, by Meg Wolitzer

If you loved A Cold Legacy, by Megan Shepherd, and you’re looking for a new blend of retelling (here, it’s fairy tales), horror, and thriller, try:

  • Tear You Apart,  by Sarah Cross
  • Crimson Bound, by Rosamund Hodge (May 2015)

This long ass thing is for @bagginshieldisreal, cause I love her and because I wanted to write something from this au and she suggested a Bilbo and Thorin moment after they’d met but I uh… went overboard. It’s mostly their first meeting (but I don’t think she minds? <3)
