the guys at your shop… they don’t always have common sense, do they?

No. They don’t. Like… REALLY don’t. One of the main reasons I opened the shop was because I saw this. These guys were floundering about, trying to buy supplies, doing it in a really illogical way (they don’t like to wait, don’t like to plan ahead, so they end up overpaying like crazy for things to be sent as quickly as possible to their house and they do it AFTER they need something, after business hours) so I opened the shop as a place for guys to be able to buy things right here, right now.

It’s working. It plays into my strengths, which are business and organizational skills and my ability to interact with other business people. It also is cool because me and my family have NO artistic skills, but we have a big interest in art, such as tattoos. So even though we can’t do it ourselves, we can facilitate it in others who can’t understand/function in the business world.

It sounds strange, but I treat them pretty much how you would treat a very emotional 5-year-old boy. Yes boy, because girls are more sneaky and manipulative and more mature than boys. These guys don’t run on logic, but rather on emotion, they’re very surface and obvious about how they feel, and if you can get a good symbiosis going, it works great! It took a while for me to learn it and try different things, but it’s working great now 🙂

That was a very long-winded answer to your rhetorical question 😀

I need to
learn to read slower, I saw “I kinda wanna hook up some sort of
electrical shock thing” and in my head it was “I kinda wanna hook up
*with* some sort of electrical shock thing”  (since we’d say ‘plug in’
here and hook up is just a sex thing so my mind filled in the missing
word for ya). The whole post took a fast turn in my version of events.
Maya has a vending machine to Maya wants to hook up with some
electricity

Hehehe! I read things too fast all the time and get really strange shit out of it 😀

Thank you for letting me know because I got a chuckle out of this! I do like electrical play, so I’d totally “hook up” with an electrical thing too.

Of course, that’s plug in again instead of hook up. Damn. Okay, if there were an electric guy handing out electrical orgasms, I’d hook up with him. Yes, that works.
