Happy Labor Day Everybody! (Hopefully not too many of you are laboring…however, the news never stops, and with Gustav churning and wreaking havoc in the Gulf, I can tell you a whole lot of journalists, myself included are working today.) (My thoughts are with all of the residents in the Gulf Coast.)
Speaking of work– I wear a suit to work everyday, and over the weekend, sent a big batch to the dry cleaners. Along with it, I tossed in a button-up shirt, I never dry cleaned before. Until now, I always washed and ironed button-ups myself. Niagara starch and all.
So, I asked the nice young man “how much to dry clean a shirt?” and he said $1.99, which, according to J.Flink, is about right. When I brought my freshly-cleaned bounty home later that night, saw on the reciept they had charged me $6.95! (The shirt didn’t cost more than $15!)
J.Flink says it’s because the shirt is made of linen, and those cost more to clean. But still! When I pointed to the shirt, and asked how much it would cost, the young man said $1.99!
Nit picky? Not? I’m going to call tomorrow and see if they can adjust this price for me.
Cheers & Celebrations,
