I have been going to the same hairdresser for over a year now and it seems that I never had an appointment. I would ring up and a man would answer – I never bothered to listen to the name of the hairdresser (only knowing it was one) and I’d make an appointment. I would make it at about 8.00 am and believed it was an answering service since the hairdresser had only female staff.
It turns out I’ve been making an appointment at the wrong salon for the last couple of months but rather than tell me I didn’t have an appointment they took me in any way.
Now comes the stupid part! They told me today because they were “over booked” for the time of my appointment. What is worse they told me in front of a room full of people. Obviously I laughed it all off and apologised and the woman behind the counter was most apologetic. I made another appointment and left but all I can think about today is how stupid I was. But was I?
All they had to do was tell me that I didn’t have an appointment. Simple. Instead to have to tell me in front of a room full of women who laughed along with me I just feel so embarrassed.
I have since made another appointment for later in the week but I’m going to have to hold my head up high and walk into the salon and laugh it all off.
I can’t understand how I could make such a mistake but hey! I wasn’t paying attention to the name of the salon so it is basically my fault. No, not fault, it was my mistake. Because they made a mistake also in not letting me know. I feel so dumb! And what’s worse is that I’m not a blond and I don’t have too many blond moments but when I do boy do I make a fool of myself.
I know I will get over it because I do stupid things all the time and I don’t let them drag on in my mind for too long and even writing this will probably get it out of my system but I just wish they would have let me know before this. At a time when the place wasn’t so busy. Oh well I guess you LIVE AND LEARN don’t you?
