As I was conditioning my hair in the shower this morning, I took time to read the bottle. I am in shock! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my entire body says “for extra volume and body”! Seriously, why have I not noticed this before? It certainly explains a lot!
Ok, this is a joke. Although I am going to quit washing my hair in the shower, just in case!
But it does trigger a topic I think about from time to time. We do need to pay attention to what we read, and read it all the way through. I was talking to a soon-to-be bride about the “free wedding suite for the couple” many resorts advertise. She had been researching online for the perfect wedding in her price range, and was very excited about the offering. What she hadn’t read before she came to me was the part about how many rooms her booking would have to include and in what category. I hated to be the one to deliver the bad news.
This isn’t an uncommon thing. People who find “deals” advertising $300 trips to Hawaii are ultimately very disappointed to find that it’s good for very limited dates, involves 2 days flying due to the 13 hour layovers in 3 different cities, and features a lovely room with 2 single beds overlooking the parking lot, 5 miles inland from the beach. Oh, and no taxes or “fees” are included, so now it’s really going to cost $600.
Moral of the story: read to the end. Or better yet, have your friendly travel professional do it for you!
But tomorrow, I am going to start using “Dawn” dish soap in the shower. It says right on the bottle, “dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove . ” Awesome!
