Ever have a day that goes from bad to worst! I started out my day with my son calling to tell me his wife lost their baby in a miscarry. Then I had a hairstylist throw a fit and give me her notice she is leaving the end of the week. I need a really big Makers Mark tonight! Andd it' only Tuesday, god I wish this week were over. At least I have the Renissance Festival to look forward this weekend. Don't ya hate it when the week goes from bad to worst! Can I shoot myself and get it over with?
Oh, Sister A, I'm so sorry about the baby. Definately the definition of a dark day.
The hairstylist? Who needs her? There's dozens out there waiting to take her place. Her leaving just may be opening up a place for a wonderful new addition to your salon.

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. - Frederick Buechner
If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles, how can it be called progress?
As for the hairstylist, someting tells me she was only mediocre in the first place. The only way to go from here is up! Enjoy your weekend and you will be prepared to tackle the situation with a refreshed mind next week.
Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer "am I worth dying for?" - Eleanor Roosevelt
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. -- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
Well the Hair Stylist got really ugly with my last customer last night and then left before I could get her in the back to discharge her. So I go to work this morning and come in and ask for her key...she let me know that she wasn't done til tomorrow and I'll get it then...of which I quietly said, "No, your done right now". She told me she'd leave when she was good and ready. I quietly said no, you are done right now. Pack and leave.
She refused, I called the Warner Robins Police. Within 4 minutes, 3 of the guys I know were here for me. Actually 5 cars showed but one of the guys gave him a hand sign and the other 2 left but waved hi...one pulled up and asked if he could put me in handcuffs now? I needed that humor right about then.
All 3 of the guys came in and told her she must pack and leave and if I had to call them again while she was packing up I could have her arrested for disturbing the peace. She then started packing. Then I walk into the salon and one of the other girls and her customer start yelling at me for calling the police to remove this stylist.
The customer told me I didn't have a heart and that I am hard hearted and she will never step foot in this place again and she can't understand how her technician can stand me. I stood there dumbfounded. No reply. I quietly walk back to my office and sat here drinking a Diet Coke regretting the whole thing.
So after about an hour and the girl is gone the customer comes over and wants to know if she's going to have a problem with me when she comes in next time. I said "Only if you come over and chew another bite out of my a**" we may have a problem.
She then tells me she's sorry and I break down crying all over her and tell her the whole story about the stylist and how ugly she was to my customers and the whole roddy story. She's now crying, I'm sobbing! I apologize to her for adding such excitement to her day & we part friends.
So guess what I'm fixing when I go home tonight... yep better go by the liquor store and get another bottle of maker's mark! Been that kind of week.... I hope none of you have had a week like mine! God bless you all for reading my story and your kind and generous words. They have been my salvation this week! Love to you all! Annabelle
PS: Where was Kidclaymore when I needed him? He's busy but he sent his bud's.
