I am certified!

I just finished a 3 day certification class in Precious Metal Clay (PMC). A lot of it was review, but it feels good to have the certificate and pass the review. I will be off to Portland on Tuesday, and will post when I return.

Now I have been thinking about this since Friday...is the world spinning faster or getting crazier? I was at the "Dollar Store" the other day getting some metal trays. I checked out and was heading to my car. I looked at my receipt and noticed that the cashier didn't charge me for 1 of the 4 trays. So I went back to the clerk and told her she didn't charge me for one of the trays and that I owed her money. She looked at me like I was nuts, and the people in line looked at me like I was nuts too. She the said she wouldn't have come back to pay the $1.08, but thanked me for my honesty and rang up my tray. I felt much better, but was quite upset that this was astonishing to them. I was raised to try and do the right thing....it didn't seem that strange to me... or am I just nuts?

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

You were absolutely right for being honest. We need more of us.The other people were wrong. And don't let others change you. Besides you showed them up.
Congrats on the Certification.

Oh so you're certified in PMC now huh? I didn't know this in Portland - perhaps I wasn't fully listening. So, when is your next PMC class?? :)

It's Lora, remember me - you're struggling wire wrapper from last week? Just thought I'd bug you like I said I would. Hope you have recovered - it was such a great class you taught. Showed everyone at work my bracelet - it got rave reviews. Again, many thanks - you're an awesome teacher. Can't wait to fly up and take the PMC class! (hint, hint :) ain't I a pain?)
