(no subject)

Suckage from earlier tonight... I went and did some last minute shopping with my mother at the mall, mostly at New York and Company. Now, we've been going to this particular store for YEARS, she has credit with them, etc etc. Never had a single issue until tonight. We're browsing around their clearance items (which was somewhere around 7~8 long racks of clothes on the floor and roughly 1/6 of the store's wallspace. As in, LOTS OF STUFF.) There was a mish-mash of things in a few spots but generally, it was organized - pants all on the same racks, same style of shirts together, etc. My mother, who has a hard time finding pants she likes (she's pretty tall) finds a group of pants that she LOVES and they have her size! Yay! She gathers up her things and goes to check out, with me standing behind her holding my own things.

Sigh. The holidays do weird things to people, I guess. :P Here's to hoping for a b_s free holiday weekend! Hope you all have a good one.

An'jels Salon Update

Here's an update to the post I wrote a couple of days ago about my horrendous experience at An'jels salon:

I went back to the salon yesterday afternoon to talk to the owner, Jamie. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Jamie was really attentive and listened to all of my complaints. She apologized for Brenda's behavior and told me that she would talk to her about it later. She refunded half of my total bill saying that she couldn't refund the entire amount since I did receive a relaxer service. After the refund she evened out my hair. I didn't want to argue with her about the amount of the refund since we had that conversation before she started cutting my hair and I didn't want to walk out looking worse than before. All in all she was a hell of a lot more professional than I was expecting considering Brenda's behavior. Jamie also offered me a free service the next time I come in but I definitely won't be going back so I'll never be able to cash in on that.

So a decent outcome to a horrendous initial experience. Thanks to everyone for all of the support on my initial post - it definitely gave me more courage to stand up for myself and go back to the salon.
