Punk’d – Cross Stitching Style

So, a few months ago my Debit card was about to expire, and the strip had worn out causing problems for me every time I went to the register.  I went in to my local bank (national chain) to have them replace the card and they gave me a one month replacement right on the spot. The replacement card surely wasn’t the “quality” that my original card was, but it would make do. I waited and waited for the new card to arrive in the mail and it never did.

This became a problem when I was checking out at the local grocery and had the cashier tell me that my card had been declined… No problem…pulled out my Credit Card and finished the purchase. I called my bank only to have them give me the run-around. To cut this long story short, after several phone calls, I came to find out that the bank had a mishap and the order for my card never went thru. They promptly ordered me a new one which I received in a matter of a few business days.

However, if you were to judge my problem by the response of this individual, my problem must pale in comparison. Check this out:

So, when I came across how this man punk’d his bank, I thought I would take a look around and see how others have been having fun with their needles and thread.

My search took me over to the Huffington Post and an article from February of this year (2015) where even the snarkiest of people may be slightly offended. Don’t drink while you’re browsing this article…or eat. Don’t do that either. You may shoot liquid out your nose or choke on that Dorito. In fact, don’t stand either…just sit, click, laugh and enjoy.

By the way, some of what I found are NSFW (Not Safe For Work – for those of you not up on the lingo…). Enjoy!

Well, obviously that was a good laugh.  What creations have you recently come up with that don’t fit the traditional mold?

Keepin you in stitches…
