November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

An Irregular Appointment

| UK | Crazy Requests, Health & Body, Theme Of The Month

(I work in a hair salon and take a phone call.)

Me: “Hello. How may I help?”

Customer: “I need an appointment with [Stylist] for a haircut.”

Me: “Okay. When would you like to come in?”

Customer: “Whenever works for [Stylist].”

Me: “Okay. How about tomorrow at 3 pm?”

Customer: “No. Can’t do that.”

Me: “Friday at 10?”

Customer: “No. Can’t do that.”

(This goes on for a while.)

Customer: “I can only do [specific date, a Saturday; our busiest time].”

Me: “I’m afraid [Stylist] is fully booked that day. How about [Other Stylist]?”

Customer: “I always see [Stylist].”

Me: “Okay…”

Customer: “They have nothing?”

Me: “Sorry. They are fully booked.”

Customer: “I have been seeing them for years.”

Me: “Okay…”

Customer: “Can you not move the other clients around?”

Me: “Not really. How would you like if we moved you around for someone else?”

Customer: “You wouldn’t do that. I’m a regular.”

Me: “According to your record, you’ve been to see us three times. The clients booked in have been coming for the last six years.”
