I GOT A CRICUT TODAY!!!!!
EXCEPT, I had to FIGHT to get it at Joanns!
I was an hour away from home today at a doctor's appointment and remembered that they had the sale at Joanns so I thought I'd go pick up the personal cricut because I think it's plenty big enough for me right now. We don't have a Joanns in my town, so this was my only shot. Anyhoo, I went shortly after they opened and didn't see any signs or anything that said they were on sale.
So I asked an employee and she said no we only have the bigger one for $249 (which they didn't even have in the store as far as I could tell). Ummmm, what? So I went down the street to the store where my husband was and b****ed for a minute and went back to Joanns and asked for a manager. Manager said, I'm sorry we have to go by what they ring up, can't override, etc. We can't get on the internet to look, blah, blah, blah. So I left. Peeved. I called back a little later and asked for the district manager's number. The "manager" that I spoke with a little earlier said she couldn't give it to me!!!
She said I had to speak with the manager first and she didn't get there until 1:00. So I said, "you mean earlier, when I asked to speak with the manager and you came to help, you're telling me you're not the manager?" She said nope...just a keyholder. Anyway, I call the store at about 10 after 1 and the manager wasn't there yet...apparently she runs late quite often. So, we were done with our errands and my doc appt. so we decided just to go to Joanns and wait it out. As soon as I walked in, the keyholder said that the manager told her to honor the 149.99 price. Showed her how to override it as a "competitors" price. So, what they should've just done at 9:30 am took until 1:30 pm to complete. It seems that the keyholder was probably new and truly didn't know what to do.
But, I got my Cricut. That's all that counts!!!!
