This reminds me of an incident that happened many years ago when I worked at a liquor store. The manager had written up the "shelf talkers," the signs we would put up on the shelf to show what was on sale. One customer came to the register laughing because one had a brand of wine, but instead of "all varieties" it said "all flavors." This guy said he wanted to take a picture to submit to some wine magazine he subscribed to because he found it so funny, saying whoever wrote the sign thought wine was like soda or something. I pointed out that the manager had come to the U.S. as an adult not knowing a word of English, and since he had a family to support he had to learn it on the fly, he didn't have the time or money for classes when he arrived. Add to that than English was actually his THIRD language. I though he should cut the guy a break if he didn't have all the nuances of the language down pat. The customer didn't have anything to say about that. It probably wasn't right to say that to a customer, but the mocking tone of the guy (he was real nasty) and the fact that he wanted to submit it to a magazine to mock him further kinda pissed me off.

Now I want to complain about the hair salon thread getting closed just as it got interesting. AG must be an advertiser?
That depends. If someone had an issue in 1987 but all recent reviews are glowing then it would show that the business had taken steps to improve customer service and those looking for a new place to go might be willing to give that particular business a try.

eta: while the above was the original reason I started this thread, I've decided I'll use this for my occasional moments of lucid thoughts. YMMV
