Default Had to laugh a little

Yesterday, I stopped by the pizza shop to pick up some wings. Wearing my Gray IAP T-shirt. I go to the counter to place my order. There is a bench to sit on while you wait for them to serve it up. A gentleman sitting on the bench, behind me read the Logo on my shirt, and says " What's a pentuner"? I had to correct him. I say "Penturner" It's an International Penturning Organization Online"

Here's how the rest of it goes:

Me: We make pens on a lathe

Him: You mean like Custom Made?

Me: Yes

Him: Do you make Fountain pens?

Me: Yes...also Rollerball and Ballpoint

Of course I didn't have one to show him,
but I have a photo of the Blue Acrylic and
Aluminum Kitless FP on my Visa card. I let him
take a look.

After that his order was ready, and he headed toward
the door. He looks back and, says to me,
"It's nice to know that, not everything is made
in China" Have a great day!

I think he's a penturner!

Chuck, if you had a pocket t-shirt, you might have had a pen to show off!

Next year....

I agree but I have had some people say that they can get 10 pens for a buck at the dollar store. You get what you pay for.
