MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Warning!

Giving you a head's up before you start reading this.....there is a little bit of 'language' so if you don't like the use of a certain 3-letter 'a' word used in reference to what you sit on, don't read any further. 

Warning # 2....be prepared to laugh.  Seriously would suggest a trip to the bathroom before reading.

I found this posted on one of the knitting groups today and I have to admit I laughed til I cried.  It's simply too good not to share.

Oh, that is so funny and how so very true. I was in centrelink the other day trying to register for an online account so I no longer had to wait two hours to get through on the phone and I had the same experience. Wish I had read this first.
