Last night I went to Wal-Mart. They had just gotten in fabric within the last 6 months, but there is never anyone staffed there. I went and found a stock man, and told him that I needed to get some fabric cut. He said okay, and that he would get me someone. About 10 minutes later, the same stock man came around again. He asked if someone came to help yet. I said no, and he went to find someone again. A couple minutes later he came back and said that he couldn't find anyone, and that he would just do it himself. I asked if he knew how to cut fabric, and he got this deer in the headlights look, and asked if I did. I said yes, just keep it straight. Then he attempted to measure, and he was stretching the fabric (which was knit), so I showed him the proper way to measure it. Then I said just take the scissors up the the groove to cut it. He put his hands up in there, and said you do it, so I ended up cutting my own fabric.
The the poor guy couldn't figure out how to print the ticket for it. He ended up printing out a sticker for each yard, rather than having them all on the same one. He was a really nice guy, and I actually kind of felt bad for him. I think in total from the first time I asked him for help, until he was done printing the stickers, it took over 20 minutes, for 2 yards of fabric, from the same bolt.
