Ugh, I just called to get information and an appointment to pierce my dd’s ears. The woman was just rude.
As I start speaking, the clocks in the store start ringing the hour. Instead of “I’m sorry, but it’s noisy in here” or some other comment in that vein, I get “Speak up, can you? Hello? Hello?” all before I can even take a breath to speak again.
Then I ask how much to get the ears pierced, then if the cost of the studs is included. Instead of a simple “Yes, they’re included”, I get “Well of course they’re included, what do you think? I would have told you if they were extra you know”.
Biting my tongue a bit to remain civil at this point, I ask if I need to get an appointment. She comes back with “Yes, you need an appointment. Why don’t you call back when you know what you want and when you want it.” Um, isn’t it up to her to tell me when they have a spot, or ask me (politely) when I’m available?
All along, her tone of voice is abrupt and so rude.
I’m of two minds about going to get dd’s ears pierced there. She really wants them done, though, has been looking forward to it all week, and I did promise. I also have no way right now to drive to the next town to have them done at another place.
Should I put up with the crying I’ll get if I go back on my promise? I promised we’d get them done today - before the weekend - if she was good all week AND passed her swimming lessons, which she did. Or should I just go for this but not go back for anything else?
