The dog groomer is having a dog grooming special this week. So, I made an appointment with them to get Benji groomed yesterday. When I dropped him off, the office was full! But the groomer said. “I will finish him first because he has an appointment”.

Well, when I returned about two hours later, she had not yet finished. But she claimed that she was about to finish.  Nevertheless, since she was still finishing up, I went across the street to check out this new store.

Well, I totally lost track of time! So, another hour passed before I returned to pick up the dog. Well, if you can believe, she had just finished bathing him when she should have already finished completely.

If it is going to take this long every time they run as special, the next time I will tell them to call me when he’s ready. If she had finished long ago, I would not have gone back to the store across the street and bought another shirt that I did not need. Ugh…
