One of my best customers called me at 8:00 this morning and asked if there was any way she could have something framed by 12:00 noon. I told her to bring it over so I can see what I can do. She did. She came in with 6 - 5 x7" photos of her six kids (4 boys & 2 girls). Each photo was the look on their face when they sat on Santa for the FIRST time when they were 3(+-) years old. Two of the 6 had their eyes extremely wide open, two others were scared but smiling with tears, one of the remaining 2 was all excited and was pointing to a picture on a TG&Y sales paper. The last one looked teed off... straight face, NO smile and not even looking at Santa. I told them to pick it up in an hour. They just did. Thanked me. They wished me a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and gave me a card in an envelope. I just opened it. They gave me a "tip"... $100.00. lol (👍 ͡❛ ͜ʖ ͡❛)👍

"They gave me a tip...$100.00"

Reminds me of the time a customer came to collect some work I had fitted in quickly because it was a present.

I showed him the finished job, he paid as I wrapped. On leaving he pushed something in the top pocket of my shirt and said " thanks a lot Pete, I really appreciate that and have a drink on me ;) " When I checked my pocket later... it was a tea bag!:(

That sounds about right Peter. Was he a farmer?

Lot of comics around this neck of the woods. 😁🤨
