During this Christmas season I got a very special gift that I know many an annoyed client really wanted me to get for the shop and brace yourselves it was...
A brand new ceiling fan for the shop's lobby! Oh, yes the horrible ceiling fan that never shut off and made the worst sound especially in the winter time is gone! I knew it was time to get one when a client who was filling out paperwork complained about it before and after her tattoo then she called me the next day at the shop to tell me there were plenty of ceiling fans at habitat for humanity. She preceded to strongly urge me to get a new one cause my fan was ugly, loud, and the extra wind was unpleasant in the cold weather...Well, it is gone now and the shop is very peacefully quiet. That old fan has been going everyday since the contruction of the shop when one of my friends accidently ripped out the chain and because of the design of that particular fan it couldn't be replaced. Yah, that new fan sure does look swanky :)
