Quarantined tomatoes and angry hairdressers

When the Sarah Palin rolling roadshow was in Salt Lake City last week, the local Costco raised the Security Level to “Red” and quarantined all the tomatoes:

A Costco in Salt Lake City, Utah reportedly removed all of its tomatoes ahead of a Sarah Palin book tour event, after a man was arrested for attempting to hit Palin with a tomato at an earlier event in Minnesota.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Costco management was “determined” to avoid another tomato-throwing incident, and resorted to removing all of the tomatoes from the store.

Could it be that they were expecting an angry hairdresser to be visiting the store for a little tomato shopping?  Also:

Hairdresser Rhonda Halliday doesn’t think Sarah Palin was out to screw her, but screw her she did. Halliday was asked to do Palin’s hair at the ex-governor’s hotel just before her book signing at a Utah Costco. Palin’s flak told her to rush over, and use the valet parking, which Halliday dutifully did. But once she’d finished the job, Palin and her entourage ran out without saying a word—and without paying, she tells Paul Rolly of the Salt Lake City Tribune.

When that happens in restaurants we call it a “dine and dash”.  What would it be at a hairdresser?  Cut and run?

    Palin, having already alienated nearly every male hairdresser in the world, is taking on the women, one at a time.

    ahem. That could be the entrance cue for one of the ACR bunch.

    You rang? 😉

    Cut and run, definitely. Par for the course for someone who’s cut and run from every important job she’s had.

    John Edwards’ hotel haircut may have cost him $400, but at least he paid the bill – and that is a very adequate living wage, to boot, for someone who works very hard and has specialized skills. People like Palin have absolutely no respect for the people like me who actually stand on our feet doing an honest day’s work to make a living. She likely thinks that doing her hair is some great honor for a “real American” and that being in her presence is payment enough.

    I’d guess she stiffs restaurant servers, too. Asshole.

    deBeauxOs – I was just about to type in “cue Prole in 3…2…1…”

    Ya think? I knew she was arrogant, but wow.

    I’m inclined to think it was more of an oversight, maybe she thought one of “her people” was taking care of it. Still, it’s her hair, she should have made sure it was taken care of — even the hairdresser’s valet parking wasn’t paid for 😆

    JJ – I would be inclined to think it was oversight if it were someone who hadn’t already displayed a huge sense of entitlement. I can only guess of course, but she’s not one I generally give benefit of the doubt to.

    Plus, if she still has the same “people”, they would be the ones who thought the president of France was on the phone and got her punked. LOL!

    Cut and run… VG JJ. VG.

    Btw, should we take a cue from the popular media and start calling the first story tomatogate? and the second hairgate or cutandrungate?

    There’s a word used for people who don’t honour their commitments and don’t pay their bills. Now what is that word …?

    Oh yeah. Deadbeatgate.

    That just about covers all situations the Quitbull might encounter.

    Somebody actually does that trashy looking hair? Nonetheless, cut and run it is and it should be plastered across the media. It is simply stealing, but what else would we expect from Ms (ethics-lite) Palin.


Wait. What?
