Anyone have any..
After reading the "Why I don't go to WW meetings anymore" and someone mentioning that is the same reason she doesn't go to crops..

Though it might be interesting.

Mine was at a weekend retreat. And these two woman talked constantly. Never a moment where they were not talking..I kid you not..there were 14 of us there and 12 of us knew one another..

So all weekend just non-stop..they would have what I later termed "committee meetings" regarding each aspect of their layout. I mean right down to where should the adhesive should be placed. I am not exaggerating either..I am serious..every aspect of the layout. Very annoying.

Anyway when the prizes were being drawn..(and I did know all but these 2 ladies at the crop) one table keep winning the prizes and they were friends of I was making comments (jokingly) oh it's rigged..sure they win..etc..everyone is laughing..

the Yappiest of the two turns to me and says can you please be quiet..everyone went silent..and looked at her and someone actually said you have to be kidding right.

Just unbelievable. I really don't have time to continue the rest of the story but just thought it would give us all some entertainment.

Well work is over (Early Friday YAY!!!) I am leaving here and going shopping (Scrappy of course)

Okay that story is too funny and I don't dare post my crop horror stories. They may Pea later! But I have 'em and I told some gals on Wookiemouse's crop org challenge this week that maybe I just get me some RUNS WITH SCISSORS shirts made up and stay home. I seem to not do very well in playgroups.

I have been to crops where someone talks non-stop!!!! You want to turn and say Shut up already!! But you know they would not think "I am talking too much???"

This thread below has been going on a long time, great reading for a good laugh! Makes all the crops I have gone too tame and pleasant in comparison!

When I go to crops nobody talks to me! I am a very social person. It's a horror everytime I go!
