Killing time until

This morning left me with 3.5 hours to kill while my car was getting a new part.  Yes, my new car.  Let's not talk about it.

So off I went.  First stop was supposed to be coffee, but then I had the bright idea to get my haircut.  Turned out to not be such a bright idea.

However, before I could realize that my hair was butchered, I headed to Whole Foods for lunch.  It was my first experience with the famous Whole Foods salad bar, and I'm officially in love.
The weather was perfect for lunch on the sidewalk, even if the view left something to be desired.
Next stop, Starbucks venti vanilla iced coffee, and back to the dealership... where the view left even more to be desired.
At least I wore cute shoes to stare at.

3.5 hours later, and I was finally off to run a million errands.  Only when I got into the fitting rooms at Target did I look in the mirror and realize the sad state of my hair.  I convinced myself it wasn't "so" bad, and I finally made my way home.

I stood in front of my bathroom mirror for a good 10 minutes parting, pulling, yanking, sweeping, and brushing to no avail.  I called the hubs and almost cried over the state of my mop, very unlike me.  I knew I needed a fix pronto because I was dealing with a glorified mullet: shaggy bob in the front and long layers in the back!
I was 5 times more annoyed than I look, and my hair at least 3 times as bad as it looks.  A little dramatic, yes.  The ladies back at my usual salon got me fixed up as best they could though and were sweet as could be.  Sadly, they couldn't glue the 4 inches of hair back onto my head.  Lesson learned.

Have any bad salon experiences?  A bad cut or color gone wrong?  Make this sad 'do feel like it's not alone!
