I bought two pairs of trousers a few weeks ago. I’ve worn one regularly and they’re absolutely fine. Wore the other pair this week and found them a bit too long. Thought I must be imagining it until I put the two pairs together and the second pair is a good inch longer than the first. No taking them back now as they’ve both been worn, so the only solution will be to get them altered. Or wear heels with them as I can’t afford it because of example number two!
Got fed up this week so blew 80 quid on having my hair highlighted. Told the hairdresser I wanted to go blond and assumed that’s what she’d done. No looking in the mirror for me to check. Asked a friend about it yesterday and she said my hair was very nice. Very subtle she said, she could hardly tell it’d been done.
Not the effect I was looking for in this instance and no comeback.
Both examples have occurred because I had to rely on people, first the shop assistant, then the hairdresser.
