Maybe She’s Getting “That” Hairstyle

, , , | Right | July 9, 2020

I’m at the hairdressers asking when they next have an appointment and am told that they are fully booked until next week. A woman walks in.

Woman: “I have an appointment with [Stylist] now.”

She turns and starts to leave.

Receptionist: “Ma’am, [Stylist] is ready for you.” *Gestures to a seat*

Woman: “But I’m going shopping.”

Receptionist: *Pause* “But your appointment is now and [Stylist] is waiting.”

Woman: “Exactly! I’ve checked in on time; I’ll only be about forty minutes.”

She leaves.

Receptionist: *To me* “Want an appointment?”

Me: “Sure.”

My haircut is just finishing when I hear the woman.

Woman: “BUT I CHECKED IN ON TIME! SHE SHOULD WAIT FOR ME!”

Today Was Looking Up, And Then They Looked Up

, , , , | Right | July 6, 2020

At work, we have these drawers underneath the shelves on the walls of the store. They are used for backstock and oftentimes I will sit on the ground and grab things I need to stock and also organize them.

One day, I was organizing a drawer and a slightly older customer walked up behind me and asked if I could help her. I turned my head and looked up and did not realize she was standing so close to me. Instead of seeing the woman’s face, I saw straight up her very short and flared out shorts; she was also not wearing any underwear.

I learned from this experience, and now, any time I’m sitting on the ground at a drawer and someone asks for help, I stand up and then turn around.

I work at a massage studio, where all we do is give massages. No facials, no pedicures, nothing else besides massages. None the less, on a weekly basis, this happens.

*Phone rings*

Me: [Name of studio] this is [me], how can I help you today?
Caller: Hi, I am wondering if [name I’ve never heard of] is available today?
Me: I’m sorry, who?
Caller: [Name], is she available for laser removal today?? I have this spot on my lower –
Me: *interrupts him* I’m sorry sir, I think you have the wrong number. This is [name of studio].
Caller: Where?
Me: *repeats name of studio*
Caller: Oh… so, y’all don’t do laser hair removal?
Me: No, sir, we do not..
Caller: Oh..
Me: Okay, have a good rest of your day. *hangs up*

I work as a receptionist at an upscale salon. It is very large, and we always ask if a client has seen the technician for the day’s appointment before, so if not, we can give them a tour and an introduction.

I am finishing up with someone who is paying for her haircut when a client walks in.

Me: “Good afternoon. Checking in today?”

Arriving Client: “What?”

Me: “Are you checking in for an appointment?”

Arriving Client: “No! I’d like to pay for my manicure!”

Me: “I apologize. One moment. I am finishing up with another client and will be right with you.”

Arriving Client: “But my manicure is at 2:00!”

It is 2:05.

Me: “Our nail department is behind me to the left. Who are you seeing today?”

Arriving Client: “[Employee].”

Me: “And have you seen her before?”

Arriving Client: “For about ten years!”

Me: “Oh, wonderful. You can proceed to the nail department, then. I thought you were checking out. Enjoy your manicure.”

Arriving Client: “I am checking in and out! How am I supposed to pay for my manicure afterward with wet nails?”

Me: “I will be able to check you out as soon as I have finished with Mrs. [Regular].”

Arriving Client: “Unbelievable! I’m going to leave my card here and you can just run it, or I’m going to be late!”

She leaves an American Express card.

Regular Client: “If she’s been coming here for ten years, she should know you don’t take Amex.”

Aren’t Manicures Supposed To Be Relaxing?

, , , , | Working | May 9, 2020

My sister and I are about to go on holiday to Thailand and we go to a local salon to get our nails done. We were told about this place because it does some amazing nail designs. But the owner gets my sister’s nails all wrong.

Sister: *To me* “They look wrong.”

The nails are all wonky, some shorter than the others.

Sister: “Excuse me, can you tidy them up?”

The owner makes them worse. She asks a few more times, but they stay wonky.

Me: “We’re going somewhere else. My sister shouldn’t have to pay for a bad job.”

To our surprise, the owner gets cross and grabs my sister by the arms.

Owner: “No, I’ve done a beautiful job!”

My sister tries to fight herself away, sending bottles everywhere. The owner lets go and stands in front of the door, the only exit, locking us and two other young customers inside.

Owner: “You must pay!”

Sister: “Let us go!”

Owner: “No, you pay!”

We are now scared. He rummages behind the counter. One of the other customers asks to be let go. To our horror, the owner lets her go, but locks the door behind them!

Me: *Yelling* “I’m not having this!”

I see a long black case on the floor, and my sister and I bang it against the window.

Owner: “Pay now, pay now!”

I lunge for the door, but he fights me, pushing me hard. I fall onto the sofa, see my handbag, and grab my phone. I call the police.

Me: “Help, my sister and I are being held hostage in [Nail Salon]!”

To my surprise, the owner stopped being so vicious and let the police in when they arrived. He was only fined. But there’s no way we’re going back to that store.
