Bad with numbers


I’ve been in a monogamous relationship with my hair stylist for more than a year now (albeit a one-sided monogamy.) I love her. I love the salon. I love the product. I love that even though I always get a mom haircut, I still feel a little rock ‘n’ roll when I leave there. But something so strange happened after my last appointment. When it came time to check out, I tried to be all hoity toity and mimic what I heard at a day spa recently regarding gratuity, “just add 20 percent.” Well, the cashier, who was not the stylist, misunderstood and added $20! Which is twice as much as 20%! And stupid me didn’t notice until I was well out the door and enough time had passed that I would have looked like a total jackass going back in an demanding half my tip back. MerryChristmasandHappyBirthday salon chick. Maybe next time she won’t be so rough with the neck razor….

And another thing, how come in the world of hair-cutting, one inch really equals three? They need a little ruler imprinted on their fancy-schmancy scissors....

I wish you would have put a pic of the haircut on here so we can see it because your hair always looks cute! I know so, because I saw your Easter pictures. PS This is totally something I would do (in regards to the tipping) and be sad about, only to hear my husband say "You should have gone back in there!" I agree with you, I wouldn't have gone back :) Love to Miss K!

Maybe she will be even cooler to you next time! :) then she will wonder what she did wrong when your tip is half...

That's a tough one. I would be obsessing over the fact that maybe now she thinks this is the new norm of tipping.

boo.

On a lighter note, you look pretty hot with short hair so, even if she went too short---you could pull it off!
