I wanted a haircut and phoned a salon early for an appointment but was told customers were taken on a walk-in basis only.
On Saturday I got there by 9 am and there were already ten people waiting. I drove to another salon, but it was booked solid. Still another had no openings.
The situation seemed hopeless, so I went home. My husband greeted me at the door. "That was fast," he said cheerfully. "Your hair looks great!"
