The Harridan Hairdresser

A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband.. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:

” Rome ? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty.. You’re crazy to go to Rome .. So, how are you getting there?”

“We’re taking BA,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”

“BA?” exclaimed the hairdresser.. ” That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome ?”

“We’ll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome ‘s Tiber River called Teste.”

“Don’t go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s gonna be something special and exclusive, but it’s really a dump.”

“We’re going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope.”

“That’s rich,” laughed the hairdresser. You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant.

Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it…”

A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome

“It was wonderful,” explained the woman, “not only were we on time in one of BA’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot.

And the hotel was great! They’d just finished a £5 million remodelling job, and now it’s a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner’s suite at no extra charge!”

“Well,” muttered the hairdresser, “that’s all well and good, but I bet you didn’t get to see the Pope.”

“Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me.

Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me”

“Oh, really! What’d he say ?”

He said: “Who the hell did your hair?”

  1. I remember the time we were in Rome and standing in Vatican Square with thousand of people, way off in the distance I could just barely make out two figures come out on the balcony but no clue who they were…could have been anybody. There was a little old Italian lady standing close by holding her Rosary beads in the air and I asked her if one of those figures was the pope, she replied…”I don’t know about the guy in the white robe, but the guy on his left is BIG FUR HAT!

  2. I saw em’ there too… He had a 5 gallon bucket slap full of IOTW bucks and was lobbing handful’s of it over the railing! An awesome sight to behold…

    Heh, /Salute

  3. True story. I was at St Peters in Rome years ago with wife and a couple of old friends.

    We toured and came upon a confessional. I suggested that perhaps Joe needed to get some things off his chest and perhaps the confessional would be a good idea.
    We started laughing a bit too loudly and the Swiss Guard hushed us.

    And at that moment Pope John Paul rose to deliver a mass on the main dais. I don’t remember what that stage is called.

    Talk about timing.

  4. @PHenry – that was hilarious! You and your friends were quite fortunate amoungst the laughter to see Him.

    I saw John Paul II, a saint now, in MSG in 1978…incredible.
