Not. Though not as pissy as I was yesterday, I can tell that my snap-off potential is still pretty high.
Everybody (okay, 3 dudes at work) have been raving about this guy who does dreads and they told me I should give him a call so he can hook me up. They give me his number. I’m going to the Bluff next week, so I figure I’ll go get a wash and twist before I head out. I’ve been doing my hair myself for well over a year, and if this guy is as wonderful as they say he is, I figure it wouldn’t hurt to pay him a visit every couple of months for a little routine maintainance. So, I call him.
“Hello, may I speak to dreadlock dude?”
“This is he.”
“Hi. I’m Nerd Girl. I got your number from a few of the people I work with. I understand you work wonders and would like to come in next Wednesday for a wash and retwist.”
“This is my private number.”
“Okaaaay. Well, this is the number they gave me, I’m sorry. Is there another number you’ d like me to call instead?”
“Well, no this is fine. I’m sure they told you that you must come in for a consultation.”
“Nope, they didn’t. Can I come in tomorrow?”
“Any time. I’ll be there all day.”
***I’m beginning to remember why I CANNOTSTANDGOINGTOGETMYHAIRDONE!!! Your all day may not be the same as my all day! Woo sah.***
“Okay, great. Where are you located?”
“On such and such between the fish house and K.rystals.”
“Um. Where is that?”
“Well, if you can find the street, you can find it.”
“Do you have an address?”
“I don’t know the address, but everybody knows where such and such road is.”
What I say: “Okay, thank you. I’ll ask someone for clearer directions and come by after work tomorrow.”
What I’m thinking: The hell? I am a potential customer – you know? Source of income-cash-money-dinero-cheddar!! Why the hell is this dude giving me attitude for asking for an address? I’m cool with an address AND landmarks, but not just no stankin’ landmarks. I don’t live on that side o’town. Am rarely over there. Aint been to that fish house and I don’t eat at K.rystal. (I don’t care if you do, I just don’t). How about you just tell me where your dadgum business is so I can drive halfway around the world tomorrow for my consultation so I can come back next week and get my hair did? How about that????
Yeah, still got a bit of ‘tude left.
