|02:21 pm - How they do business way out in 508...|
I mentioned in an earlier post that I ordered more of my shampoo. I'd now like to reproduce the conversation we had, now that shock has worn off.
Her: You said you wanted Monday hours, but here I didn't get back to you until today. I'm sorry about that.
Me: I actually wanted Sunday hours. It's hard for me to get there during a week.
Her: Well, Sunday, we're usually sleeping.
Her: Where do you live?
Her: Is that near New Bedford?
Me: *chuckling* No. I'm up near New Hampshire on Route 3.
Her: Oh dear. (not that New Bedford is that much closer.) Well, how about I mail them.
Me: That would be fine. I'd like two shampoos and one conditioner.
Her: That's 24$ plus postage.
Me: How much is that.
Her: I don't know. You'll see when you get the package.
Me: But, I don't know how much it is.
Her: When you get the package, just mail me a check for 24$ plus the postage on the package. It's nice because you don't have to worry about me overcharging you for postage.
Me: Yeah, okay. Sure.
When was the last time that happened? I sent her the check today. Now admittedly, I called her for a specialty item, I knew exactly what I wanted and chances are good I'd buy from her again, because, well, it's a specialty item, and so it's in my best interest to pay in a timely way, but still. I'm so used to being automatically distrusted, I don't even notice it, and the time someone does trust me, just freaks me out.
You need to use this
. I heard them talking about it at the wedding yesterday and how great it was -- and no, I'm not kidding.
(by the way, new ATB is up. go check that out.)
While I appreciate the attempt to keep my mange under control, I actually like my current shampoo. It leaves my hair feeling soft and fluffy.
(by the way: why do you think I haven't? Read it at 11:30ish. Nice review.)
It's funny how partial we get to our hair products isn't it?
Not that this is particularly tied, you just reminded me of something. I've been showering at the fiance's house, and recently they changed to costco brand shampoo/conditioner. The shampoo is fine, I'm not particular, I figure it gets my hair clean no matter how it smells, just so long as it lathers. But the conditioner is like a thickened rue of baby oil. It smells pretty, but is blue, and doesn't do anything to condition my hair. It was a shock to see it the first day, because for the longest time they'd been using a conditioner I'd brought over (pantene). Finally I got frustrated after several days of this baby-oil-hybrid and went out conditioner shopping. I decided that if they wanted to use sub-par conditioner on their masculine hair they could, but I needed substance, and something that didn't leave my hair (which is fried from too many dye jobs) frizzy and tangled.
I have 3 different flavors now. If one runs out, I've got more up my sleve.
