The sunday scribblings prompt this week is change. Last week, Like so many, I had written about my feelings and the change I am hoping President elect Obama will have on our country, but the scribblings girls are getting strict! They stressed.. NOT to use an
older post so instead, I'd love to talk about another significant change in my world...
The dramatic change my salon has recently made. It has had all my clients singing their praises! Which feels so uplifting!
Friday a woman kept describing my good taste as ME being tasty! she said over and over- "you are so tasty!" I thought that was a unusual but cute compliment! Everyone is so complimentary and I can tell that they are enjoying the change as much as I am... You KNoW where I am going, don't you?
Yep.. There is always ONE. Always one stick in the mud, who never watched Bambi as a child. "thumper, what did your father tell you??" "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". This lady must have missed that lesson from Thumpers mom And her own.
As SOON as she walked in and Noticed the incredible changes we've made, She didn't compliment it, No,no, no. She first said.. 'Oh Look at what you did here. This is different.' Then she immediately looked up at the curtains that I thought were perfect and loudly declared..."OH NO, THAT'S a BIG mistake. BIG Mistake!!" I very nicely asked 'they are? why?" She said "you are going to have tons of hair in there! BIG mistake!" (gee, does hair fly UPWARD when I am cutting?)
What do you say to someone like this? What makes a person act like this? Do they think they are being helpful? If the curtains were in a catalog and I was considering ordering them and she was trying to give some warning.. that would be different. They ARe UP! They are On a rod!
After she leaves, Does she happily think she really enlightened me??
I just don't understand people sometimes. So, always being the professional (professional kiss ass, i guess). I said.. 'Oh, I would have never thought of that. I guess if that happens, I will need to vacuum them.' She then got a satisfied look on her mean face.
I wish some times instead of changing their hair color, I could magically change the color of their spirit.
i just have to show my PERFECT curtains!
