Amelia Bedelia looked in all the stores. She cam to a dress shop. It had HELP WANTED sign in the window. Amelia Bedelia went into the store. "What kind of
help is wanted?" she asked. "Sewing help", said the lady. "Can you sew?" "Yes", said Amelia Bedelia. "I am very handy with a needle". "Then come with me", said the lady. She took Amelia Bedelia into a back room. "Please shorten these dresses. They are already marked", said the lady. "All right", said Amelia Bedelia. The lady left her. "I don't need to sew to do this", said Amelia Bedelia. She took the scissors and shortened those dresses. Amelia Bedelia went back to the front of the store. "I'm finished", she said. "What is next?" "Finished!" said the lady. "How could you be?" The lady went into the back room. She saw the dress. "Oh, no!" she said. "You have ruined them". "But I just shortened them", said Amelia Bedelia. "Oh, ho away", said the lady. "I don't want you". So Ameleia Bedelia went.
