The Usain Bolt method

By theultimatesalonfail - This FML is from back in 2011 but it's good stuff - United States

Today, a girl came into my salon to permanently straighten her really long and curly hair. After several long hours, I went to the counter to charge her. She ran out faster than an Olympic runner. FML

Don't you have the right to call the cops or something?

This comment makes about as much sense to me as Charlie Sheen.

Take a stab at it son You'll figure it out

the only way this makes sense is if hes asking how she can be sure the girl ran faster than an olympic runner, which either makes it a legitimately stupid question or a sad attempt at humour..

Always be equipped with hairspray and a lighter. You can make your own personal flamethrower to keep them from bailing.

knew requirement to pay first.

If you see her and her long, straight hair, cut as much of that shit off before she Usain Bolt's her way out of wherever you might be.

Usually nail people will start your nails and then make you pay before painting them. You should do everything but the last two steps, and ask them to pay. I would say lock your customers in while you do their hair but they might think you're a creep.

Call in dogs and have them sniff her out

Ah, that sucks. Some people are just rude. Sorry OP.

"Cops, I just got robbed.... What did the suspect look like? Ummm well she looked like Rupunzel."

first dine and dash, then cut and run...?

Technically, the girl's hair wasn't cut, it was straightened.

My question is why she would want to permanently straighten her hair. Curly hair is sexy.

yes, the right to call the cops is for everyone, whether they will act on your issue or actually resolve anything is another.

86, theft of services is still theft. :P

86 it costs at least 300 or 400 dollars to permanently straighten hair. Especially if she had really long hair.

Forgive me for being a dumbass, but is this referring to getting a version of a perm that straightens your hair, or is there a legitimate way to permanently straighten your hair? If there is, I'd really like to know

I bet she tripped over that hair later on.

I hope you had a good look at her face so you could report her.
