I am not making up the following phone conversation nor do I feel I need to exaggerate it for comic effect. See what you think. The salon name has been changed to protect its identity and because "X" is a cool name for any establishment. X marks the spot. X = kiss. X = signature. See? Multi-cool. Use it, with my blessings. Now on to our story...
This took place on Saturday.
Thad: Hi, X Salon. Thad speaking.
Me: Hi, this is L. A. Cochran. I got a voice-mail message confirming a hair appointment.
Thad: Yeah, that was probably from me. I did a bunch of those earlier.
Me: Um, yeah. Your message said the appointment was tomorrow at five. I can come tomorrow but I thought the appointment was for Tuesday.
Thad: Oh, yeah. See, I was eating lunch and I did a bunch of those calls. I probably told everybody that it was tomorrow.
Thad: I'm used to telling people that their appointment is tomorrow but I forgot it was Saturday and I was looking ahead to next week. See, I was eating lunch.
Thad: I guess I should call everybody back. I probably told everybody that.
Thad: Thanks for calling back.
Me: So my appointment is Tuesday?
Thad: Oh, yeah, it's Tuesday. ...Now, I guess I have to call everybody back.
Me: Um, yeah. Thanks for the confirmation.
