When I got to Raffaele's at about 1.15 pm today the trouble was not so much the number of people waiting - there were about six of us - but what the women already being "done" were having done! Saturdays seem to bring out the luscious long locks brigade and everything takes ages with them. Anyway, I sat there with my book and talked to a few people, including a charming chihuahua, until 3.30, when I asked Raffaele how much longer the wait would be.
"Oh, in 45 minutes, you'll be servita and out", said he confidently.
But by 3.50 I had still not been shampooed and I had students due at home at 4.30, so off I dashed, with apologies.

Nothing for it but to throw myself upon the mercy of Orazio - yes, he could do it at 5.30. Sprint home, teach students, back to Orazio's and at last servita and feeling human by 6.30.

There was panettone at Raffaele's, though!

Is it first come, first serve? If it was by appointment that's terrible service! You're a very patient person.

Well, my dear, I guess you should carry your own treats so you needn't feel bad about having to go to a different hairdresser! I bet you look just as lovely as you would have if you'd gone to Raffaele's. I would have hated spending so much time waiting - but, at least, you had your book!

I couldn't be doing with having to wait that long for a hair appointment. I don't mind having my hair pampered for ages though.

Hi, Betty. Yes, first come, first served. I'm not patient but I'm learning to be! Hi, Carmen. That's a good idea! I never go anywhere without a book here! Hi, Cherie. Well, it's a very nice pllace to wait and I woouldn't have been bothered but for the students.
