So in preparation for another weekend wedding i brought one of Pats suits, my dress, 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts to the dry cleaners so that everything would be crisp and clean for the festivities.
Much to my surprise when i went to go pick up my 6 pieces they charged me $70.
$70 for that?
were they kidding?
I thought that the suit would be a little expensive and maybe even my dress but seriously - the dress is like knee length cotton jersey. it wasn't an actual "wedding dress" that i was planning on wearing to this wedding.
So anyways i asked for a price list just so i could see what i was really in for.
They "don't have one"
Okay well then can i get a receipt?
"sure"....but when i got the reciept it wasn't itemized.
Still trying to keep my cool i asked how much did the suit cost? she said 12 dollars.
which in my mind is reasonable - "fine....okay so how much was the dress"
she said "$35"
i said....Ummm excuse me are you kidding?
she said well the manager marked it as "fancy"and she also marked it as "floor length."
I laughed and reminded her that it is knee length and not really that fancy and her response was:
"well look at how tall you are"
BITCH. You are kidding right?my knee length= your floor length so double charge me because you are an effing pygmy??
you mean to tell me that i am obligated to pay more because i happen to be tall?
I would love to see this chick tell the fat lady that her giant blouse will cost the same as a king size duvet cover because she had too many cheeseburgers.
somehow i doubt that will happen.
People are so stupid!!!!!
obviously i will never go to this place again. I hate to be cheap, but i also hate getting swindled by some idiot who is trying to sell me some ridiculous illogical excuse for an overcharge.
i am not 9 feet tall.
I do not wear circus tents (well i didn't until i was pregnant).
I do shop at normal stores.
my clothes are no different than yours.....so give me a break.
i HATE the dry cleaners!!!!
(oh and by the way- if you are lucky enough to live in California - never stop appreciating the dirt cheap dry cleaning and mani/pedis.....they don't exist elsewhere. Dry cleaning and getting your nails done costs more than college tuition here. i wish i knew how lucky i was when i still lived there )
