I don’t like the upsell and I don’t like when people try to rip me off.
And you know as well as I do that it happens all the darn time!
So should this young woman feel like a jerk for refusing to pay for something she didn’t want?
Read on to see what happened…
AITA for refusing to pay for a service I didn’t ask for?
“So today I (F18) went to the hair salon to get an olaplaex treatment I’ve been wanting for a long time.
When the treatment was done being washed out, the stylist began blow drying my hair and I asked if there would be an extra charge for the blow-dry and he simply said i could not leave with wet hair. I repeated one more time that I did not want to be charged anything extra beyond the treatment and that I would be more than ok leaving with wet hair if I had to pay extra.
He nodded and continued with the blow drying so I assumed that it was a complimentary service they did. When I went to pay, I noticed the charge was significantly more than what was listed on the website so I asked about it and they said I was being charged for a style as well since I received a blow dry.
Keep in mind that I am currently trying to pay tuition and the cost of the blow dry brought me from 40$ to 98$. After a lengthy argument, I gave them the money for the treatment and wash only and walked away, not before being called an ignorant a**hole by the staff.
I think that it’s quite unfair that despite not asking for a persistently stating I was not looking for extra charge, they still charged me but I also understand that their industry is suffering right now and that they have to be compensated properly for their services.
I think that I was being reasonable but I am worried I might be the a**hole.”
And here’s what Reddit users had to say.
This reader said that this girl definitely almost got scammed.
Another person said that they should leave some reviews online so other people can see what this business is up to.
And this individual said this business might do this all the time…they sound like rip-off artists to me.
Finally, this person agreed that this was totally a scam. Ugh!
