A Nice Lady

I was paying for my haircut today and talking to the hair stylist/owner about bringing my mom to her when my mom needs a haircut. She told me that Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are senior discount days. I told her that her prices are cheap enough. She doesn't need to give discounts. In fact, I told her that although I don't want to pay more, she should really raise her rates. She is just too far below the going rate and she gives a great hair cut. He answer surprised me. "In this area there are tons of seniors. They can't afford to pay more. I don't want to hurt them."

I walked out of the salon thinking what a great lady she is. I gave her a 50% tip and still got a bargain.

Thank God there are still some people in this world who think about others. The haircut lady is one of them...and so are you! (I'm impressed by that 50% tip, skinflint that I am!)
