    Snobbery Just Won’t Cut It

    | London, England, UK | Top

    (I am having my hair done in a salon that is just off a very busy shopping street. It is just after 4:30 in the afternoon, when a woman breezes in, carrying a lot of shopping bags.)

    Client: “Hello! I have an appointment with [stylist].”

    Receptionist: “Do you? I think his client is already here. Can I get your name?”

    Client: “It is [name].”

    Receptionist: “Ah, I see why there’s some confusion. Your appointment was for 2:00 this afternoon.”

    Client: “Yes!”

    Receptionist: “And it’s 4:30 now.”

    Client: “Yes!”

    Receptionist: “So, you’re a bit late.”

    Client: “But, he knew I was going to be late!”

    Receptionist: “Oh, sorry. Did you ring to let him know?”

    Client: “No, but he should have known.”

    Receptionist: “Sorry, how should he have known?”

    Client: “He knows how beautiful I am, and there are all sorts of sales going on right now. You shouldn’t have your salon here if you don’t know that beautiful people, like me, are going to need to buy things for the summer! I mean, really!”

    Receptionist: “I’m very sorry, but your appointment time has passed. Maybe you can wait? [Stylist] is with another client right now.”

    (She points to me.)

    Client: *suddenly very angry* “Her? But she’s so ugly! It won’t make any difference if she has her hair done. Beautiful people should have their hair done first! The ugly ones should wait!”

    (She approaches my chair and tries to remove the foil for my highlights.)

    Receptionist: “Madam, I’m going to have to ask you to leave right now. You can’t speak to other clients like that!”

    (The woman continues trying to pull me out of the chair. She is hustled out of the salon by a group of stylists and customers, leaving all her bags behind.)

    Client: *going out the door* “The ugly ones should waaaaaait!”
