The guy I wanted was there, but he’d just finished another guy so I ended up with a woman.
This actually ended okay.
A couple weeks ago I got a haircut at my usual place and a woman who’d cut my hair before was in a mood to ignore almost every instruction I gave. The result was a decent hair cut that was much longer than I wanted. This wouldn’t have bothered me that much except they guy who’d cut my hair before had done a great job and she hadn’t.
Today, just over two weeks later, my hair was already starting to look shaggy and since I was in the area I decided to stop by and see if the guy was there. If he wasn’t, I was going to walk past and try again another day.
Luckily he was there and appeared to be finishing with a client. I walked in and was immediately redirected to a woman who walked out of the back room.
This woman had cut my hair a while ago and, as is the tendency of the women in the shop, she’d left it kind of long.
However, this time she seemed to understand what I wanted and did a surprisingly good job.
I kind of wish the other woman had been there, though, so I could show her what to do next time.
