Cheap

October 26th, 2009 at 10:43 pm

I really don't think nz$5 is all that expensive for a knitting pattern because you can use it any number of times, or resell it on trademe. But people grumble about the price.

This afternoon a customer asked me if they could take away a pattern and photocopy it!! When I got over my surprise I explained that wasn't possible because of copyright law and she went off muttering. When I looked again, she was sitting at the pattern table with pen and paper, copying out by hand!!!

Well, what can you do? the customer is always right and this one spends a lot on wool, so the manager said to leave her. But honestly, if you're that set against paying for a pattern why not look in the thrift stores or borrow a book on designing from the library and create your own.

    Wow, she's kind of nervy! You're right though. . . our library has tons of knitting books.

    She is either clueless, crazy, or has absolutely no shame. Hmmm... or all three. I mean, it leads me to echo mooshocker: Theft is theft. Sadly, there is just no insurance that people will act with integrity or decorum any more.
