I Need to Speak to the Manager…For Some Reason

It’s really strange, but ever since I got my hair cut, I have this overwhelming urge to talk to people in charge. Sometimes there’s not even a reason behind it; I just walk by a place where it LOOKS like there’s someone in charge, and I feel the urge to go in and just…talk to them. Maybe to straighten things out, but I don’t exactly know what I want, just that I want it.

You’d think the haircut was controlling my brain or something! But that’s silly; it’s a really nice, short cut that a lot of mums my age are getting, with some black highlights and a curvy fringe that I can use to do a bit of styling.

And then yesterday, I finally gave in. I’d been looking around Ashood, tree removal professionals are harder to find than you might think. There is always something to do. Anyway, we have this gum tree at the bottom on the garden and it’s a huge pain; just not good for the garden, and doesn’t fit with the aesthetic I’m going for. So I saw some people doing tree removal- not sure where they were from, and not even sure if they’re part of an actual tree removal service- and I got the urge to go and talk to their manager.

It was like I was sleepwalking: one minute I was walking the dog, making sure I didn’t leave any of her mess behind like SOME people around this neighbourhood, and the next, I was talking to the guy doing tree removal and demanding to see his manager, because I wanted a word with him. I didn’t say it in a nice way, either. It was actually very snippy, which isn’t like me. The guy in charge came over, and I pulled myself up to my full height, ready to give him a piece of my mind…then my mind went blank. I mean, obviously! I had nothing to say!

Maybe this haircut really is affecting me in some weird way. I need to talk to my hairdresser’s manager about this, clearly. And then I need to get onto some actual tree removal. Caulfield has far too many trees anyway, it’s not like they’ll miss a couple if they get cut down. That being said, maybe I’ll play the field a little bit, so that I don’t burn any bridges.

Oh, and speaking of fields, Hunter needs to be picked up from football practice! I’d been meaning to speak to the team manager…
