Frustrating Feathers

What a day! I was so excited about getting feather extensions. Last January my husband and I were in Winter Park, Colorado. A young woman on the ski team had these great feathers in her hair. I loved them, but had no idea where to get them. I went into a local salon for a manicure and they were putting some in a clients hair. We were leaving in a few days so I decided not to get any. I've thought about those crazy feathers ever since. Then, there was a Groupon from a salon here in Chicago that was offering feather extensions. Great, so I bought two, one for myself and one for my niece. What was pictured on the Groupon was exactly what I wanted. When we got into the salon, the woman very quickly started trying to sell us an "upgrade." The feathers were nothing like what I wanted. I explained that what was pictured was what I wanted. She told us that the prices had changed since I bought the Groupon and that she could not offer those. I was hopping mad. My niece was satisfied with what they had so I let her use both Groupons. When I had my last appointment with my hairdresser, I saw that she has the extensions that I wanted. I now have an appointment with her tomorrow evening and I will get what  I thought I was going to get today. By the way, I did call Groupon to complain. I told them that I wasn't looking to get my money back but I thought they should know that the salon wasn't making good on what they had promised. Groupon insisted on refunding the price of one Groupon. Nice.

 Thanks for all the lovely compliments. And a welcome to the new followers. Thanks for joining me.
