As I type this email, please know that I am breathing fire.
On Thursday, I took my last three Burda Magazines and newly gifted double issue of March 2010 Knip Mode to work to make photocopies of the line drawings. On my way in, a younger male colleague asked me for help on a project. After spending two hours fixing his problem I went on to my office.
This morning (Monday), I realized I didn’t have the magazines and sent him an email asking if I left them at his desk. His reply?
‘Yes… I threw them out. I wasn’t sure who’s they were…’
‘I hope you are kidding’
I have never wanted to cause physical violence to someone as badly as I do now. I’m not kidding you when I say I wanted to cry.
GLP News has March. $15. Fashionista Fabric had May. $15. Sewbaby is sold out. I’m still looking for April. April $24 purchased on ebay (thanks Kristine!) And I never even looked through the Knip Mode. By the time I’m done, I will have spent almost as much money replacing these three as my entire subscription costs.
Hell hath no fury like a Burda lost.
