They close at 5:00


The boys were over due for hair cuts so I called our local Sport Clips to make sure that we had time to get there and they could get everyone in (me included). I asked to make an appointment and was told they only take walk-ins, okay. We piled in the car, drove into town (6 miles), and when we showed up they told me they could only do 2 hair cuts because they closed at 5:00pm. Now, if the girl who cuts the Bubs' hair wasn't the only hairdresser for miles with a brain, I would have flipped the script on them. However, since I am banned from many other salons for freaking out when they fail to follow simple instructions like " don't cut his bangs above the corner of his eye" or " if it doesn't touch his collar it's to short," I kept my cool, sat down, and smiled. The real reason I am angry is that I called and was assured they had time for everyone. I wanted my hair cut too, and to be really honest I was craving one of those lolly pops they give you if you're good!!

I loathe when that happens. One time, Jdaddy and I made an hour trip to a mall to go to a specific shoe store and we got there and forgot it was Sunday (it was a holiday weekend) and arrived right as the mall was closing. We weren't able to get in to the store.

Oh that is just ridiculous. I mean you were all there before closing they are supposed to take you. I think I might be calling the big guy or gal on that one. Sorry you didn't get your lollipop. Where was your new camera mister? Wanted to see the little bub hair do.

Sounds like a Letter of Intent in the making to me! I would definitely complain to someone. You were there BEFORE closing, therefore you should receive the service they are offering. They are DEFINITELY wrong in this one.

Whaaaaaaaaaa. Okay, she should have cut your hair, but I did see you sneak that lolly pop!

I cut my husband's hair and my oldest's. But, they have course, curly hair. Not too pretty. Well, that and Nurse Boy is struggling to keep what little he has left.

I do feel your pain, though.

Okay, in high school I worked at Great Clips and we had to take anybody who walked in the door up until closing time. Didn't matter if they had to stay late.

Saw the hair cut pic on Brandi's site. Lookin' good. Did he share his lolly pop?
