Sketchbook - 2

Here's another sketchbook page.  Looks like I'm on a roll with plants and lamps.  I may just continue this theme and maybe turn them into a series of either lino carvings or (my new fun fav) digitally colored prints.

I left work today late.  Then I ran an errand to an office supply store in search of a particular item.  I couldn't find what I was looking for.  A young employee approached and asked if I need help.  I told him what I was looking for and he admitted he didn't know what that was and would ask an appropriate associate from that department to help me.  So, I waited and waited and waited.  I wandered up and down the aisles in search of what I was there for.  Nothing and no sales associate.  I kept looking at the time on my cell phone, watching the minutes pass and getting slightly annoyed at this "part of my life I'll never get back".

I finally found what I was looking for, but not as many as I wanted to get.  The young employee returned and asked if the appropriate associate had helped me.  I told him no but that I found what I was looking for and asked if someone could tell me if there was more in stock somewhere.  That began yet another long wait.  Moral of this story - I was in the store for 45 minutes and there was no additional inventory.  Ugh.  I felt like I was being "tested".  Needless to say, that put me home late after leaving work late and now I feel like my evening is shot.  I have two back-to-back webinars in the morning beginning at 8am and I am not proficient at being anywhere at 8am.
