One of my passengers who's a hairdresser was telling me a couple of stories the other day which she assures me are both true. The first was told to her by someone who works at the local crematorium. They had a visit from a lady who had recently been widowed and whose late husbands funeral and cremation had been taken place two days previously.” I’ve come for the suit “she said the staff were mystified by this request and so sat her down and asked what she meant. It turned out that she thought that the customers at the crematorium were undressed prior to being cremated. Upon being told that this wasn’t so she said “I would have dressed him in one of his old suits if I had known that”.
The second was that a young lady kept coming back to the shop to complain about her perm. It keeps falling out she said, and so the shop redid her hair, this happened three or four times and the shop staff were baffled. On her last visit they sat her down and asked her a few questions about what she was doing with her hair. They found that she thought that a perm meant just what it said, and so when she washed her hair she just towelled it and expected it to dry exactly how it was when she left the hairdressers.
