Mistaken Identity

The Weber family started Sizzor Shak Salon & Color Spa 35 years ago. I have been working at the Shak for over three years now, and the fun, family vibe is one of the reasons that this salon is such a amazing place to work.

My job as a receptionist plops me right between two of the Webers – Kaci at the desk and Linda at her station. Mama and Daughter Weber, respectively. Every morning we get coffee for each other and we try out new flavor mixes. Kaci tries out all the decaf options since she is expecting a baby girl in February. It’s a great way to start the workday, and I love these ladies dearly.

So, the other day I was at the bank with my salon attire on and the teller very sweetly asked how my daughter was doing. ??????? I have three children, all boys.

“I don’t have a daughter,” I responded.
“Isn’t Kaci your daughter?” she asked.

Okay, Linda is a gorgeous woman, so being compared to her is a great thing. However, I am only 9 years older than Kaci. So this was definitely NOT a complimentary question. I smiled pleasantly, told her she was mistaken, and when straight into the salon to schedule a facial.

Things got better this past weekend, when someone mistook me for Kaci. It’s always nice for people to think you are younger than you are.

Unfortunately, they asked me how my pregnancy was going.
(Not pregnant, by the way).


Looks like I’m going to need another cup of coffee to keep my smile in place today.
