1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: "only a sewing machine" on: March 07, 2006 05:10:24 PM
this is the first post i've ever made on here...

at the end of last year i was working as a seamstress for an independant clothing company here in Toronto. the people who own it are very nice and all that.. but... thier sewing machine wasn't working and they had borrowed one from thier neighbours, they took good care of it and all since it wasn't thiers.. when the owner asked for it back i thought, since they took good care of that one, i will bring mine here, since after all i am getting paid to be here and i like my job...

MISTAKE

every day when i got to work it was a new nightmare.. there would be piles of shit on and around my machine... the little light would get left on all night (not by me).. and other small anoyances... but the real problem was nothing i could have imagined... i came into work one day after a few days off to find my entire sewing are full of random boxes of stuff and my machine, my 500 dollar machine, was teetering on the edge of the table, half on half off, still plugged in.. looked like someone yanked on the extension cord it was plugged into, the power cord was almost ripped completely out of my machine and still hang part way out to this day.. no one ever said a word to me about it either.. the only thanks i ever got was getting laid off a week before christmas...

luckily my machine still works fine... but i will never let anyone else touch that machine again.
