tv station story
All of these mirror the post from the other board. I saw a live tv interview with her mom. Mom was all nasty about WM, and how her daughter is suffering and deserves to be paid for her suffering. Then the reporter asked about all the other claims and mom spewed out some profanity and shut the door in the reporter's face.
This woman may indeed have a legit claim, and the others might also be legit -- it just looks fishy on the surface. Especially since so many claims are against WM. Not that I think they are totally blameless - with their overstuffed aisles (that are already too small, imo) full of merchandise you can hardly walk in their da** stores. Don't want to be in one if there is a fire -- you would never get out. And I won't even go into what I think of how they are ruining the yarn/crochet/knitting industry by giving us great prices and horrid quality under special agreements with manufacturers (and this extends beyond the craft dept) ... and in effect ruining this country (and the manufacturers aren't blameless either). I just really hate WM.
