Fucking insane

A customer comes in with hair looking like the end result of an unfortunate experiment...
She wants something to correct the ash (that she put over her gold blonde hair when she tried to tone it down) that had gone streaky and grey looking. So one spent a few minutes explaining why it looked grey against the gold... carefully not pointing out that if she had applied it evenly, the outcome would have been a little different.

Then she decides she wants a semi which one explained we no longer kept... well not in a box format... she will have to mix her own or go to a hairdressing supplier to get one. Of course that is too much work. She wants something simple and convenient and here.

Then she wants to know if her hair dresser's advice would work... it seems she rang her on her holiday to ask. Ummm... not a hair dresser so no way is one going to touch that... though one did suggest that her hairdresser is far better qualified to give advice than one was ever going to be.

Then she wants to know why she can't just use a permanent... oh let's see your hair has been bleached, coloured and then coloured again.

Then she wants a guarantee that whatever she uses is going to work... yeah that isn't going to happen either. In fact one spent about five minutes explaining to her the assorted variables that would make any guarantee impossible.

Then she wondered out loud why her hair dresser had to go on holidays...
Yeah one was wondering that very same thing... though one was starting to get a very good idea why L

Perhaps you should select a pretty array of caps and beanies, as a proactive customer service measure, in anticipation of her return trip to find something to cover her baldness?

Stupidity comes in so many forms. Glad I wasn't the only one today wondering why people aren't required to pass some test in order to breed.

I'm so LOL-ing at T's comment. and i often wonder the same thing.

I spend so much time reading blogs cos the "conversation" here is so much cleverer than IRL sometimes.

Breed? Some of them should pass a test to be allowed out :(
