I answered a phone call at work last night, the lady asked me if we carried upholstery grade burlap. She wanted to reupholster some chairs. I very politely replied that I had never heard of upholstery grade burlap, but we had regular burlap... she hung up without saying goodbye. Burlap covered chairs? No thanks...

They staple it on the BOTTOMS of items that they are recovering.



WHOSE bott-! Oh. I see now.

There was an ancient TV commercial about "bad ideas" .... regarding "Mom" who kept redocrating the interior of the house based
on the latest moronic fad...

at one point she re-did the entire interior in VERY ROUGH Stucco, sharp as razors, and the whole family was touching or bumping into the walls and covered with bandaids ....

fads .... meh.
