Rolly: Check from Palin in the mail?

Sarah Palin not only annoyed leaders of the Utah Republican Party when she didn't have time for them during her book signing stop in Salt Lake City last week. She also took off from her hotel after arranging for a last-minute hair appointment without paying the hairdresser and leaving her to cover her own valet parking.

But Rhonda Halliday of Images Hair Studio and Day Spa wants to give Palin the benefit of the doubt. She thinks the lack of payment was unintended, and someone on Palin's staff just dropped the ball.

Halliday was called by a friend at 8 a.m. last Wednesday and was told Palin needed her hair done that morning. Halliday had planned to take her 3-year-old to the dentist for her first filling that morning, but arranged for her husband to get off work for that chore.

She was told to meet the group at the Monaco Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City and to just leave her car with valet parking.

After being ushered to a room on the 15th floor and given some instructions (don't talk to Palin unless she talks first) she did Palin's hair while the former Alaska governor chatted with her family.

Then, the Palin party left to get to the book signing at Costco on time.

Halliday was the last one out of the room because she had to put her equipment away, then watched as they all drove off without anyone mentioning payment or a tip, which is common when the hairdresser travels to the client for the appointment.

When the valet attendant got her car, he said that would be $10. She said she was with the Palin party and assumed they would take care of parking. That was news to him, so she had to fork over the $10.

She says her friend has contacted Palin's assistant and was told to send them an invoice.

She did get a book and some nice pictures, though .



Unintended benefits : Sarah Palin might have miffed the Utah Republican Party and left her hairdresser unpaid, but Helen Rappaport, a Utah Democrat, was thrilled with the former Alaska governor's visit to Salt Lake City.

Rappaport stopped at the Salt Lake City Costco to do some shopping, unaware that Palin was scheduled to be there for a book signing.

So Rappaport, after noticing the parking lot full of cars, was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to maneuver her shopping cart through the store with hardly anybody in the aisles. She also got a prescription filled with no wait.

While going through the check-out lane, again with no wait, she told the clerk she forgot to get some grape tomatoes, which she loves, so she would be right back.

That's when the bells went off.

The clerk told her they had no tomatoes that day.

No tomatoes? At Costco?

As she was leaving, she noticed a man with a store manager's name tag and asked him why they had no tomatoes. He informed her the store did have tomatoes, but they were taken off the shelves for a few hours.

It turns out that Palin had been pelted with a tomato at an earlier stop on her book tour and the management at the Costco was determined it wouldn't happen here.


The manager told an employee to go into the storage area and get Rappaport some tomatoes, which he gave her for free.

So, because of Palin, Rappaport not only got to shop with no lines, she got free tomatoes.

You didn't have to post all that to tell me something I already know. Liberals are mean-spirited people that tend to fling stuff when they can't fight with facts.
The Democrat lady got free tomatoes because you can't trust a liberal not to throw vegetables at someone.

that's worse than killing civilians in a faraway place with drones in MY book.

the more i hear about palin, the more i'm convinced she's a bozo.
someone so out of touch with people in her immediate environs, certainly won't give a sh.t about anyone out of sight.
she is just another politician/celibrity without a clue about the real world.
her amazing faux pas during here campaign were convincing enough.
she just keeps looking worse.
she and stephen harper could talk about nothing for hours.
if she gets to the white house i'm sure they'll be buds.

Most people on this forum like her because she is uneducated and likes to shoot at stuff, just like them. :confused:
Let's see. We currently have a group of educated individuals that don't like to shoot "stuff" in office/DC. How are things working out right now?:(

As far as I am concerned being "uneducated and likes to shoot at stuff, just like them." makes her more qualified for office than most in DC right now. :thumb:

You're really trying hard to make friends here, aren't you?

She has a college degree buddy. Move on.

This thread from this forum proves there are many folks here with an education - both formal and informal - and who are wise and experienced in the ways of the world.

For someone who apparently thinks that he is intellectually superior to most everyone on Survivalist Boards I think YOU are the uneducated one. You don't even know how to do basic research before forming an opinion and telling it to the world.

A bachelor's degree from a community college, you're right. Come to think of it, I think the girl who waited on my table at Red Lobster yesterday had one of those, too. :)


Funny observation; most of the people on this forum that go on about Palin's intellectual pedigree turn around and diss Obama's Harvard education as being an example of "Affirmative Action." Somehow they do this without choking on the irony. :xeye:

How many full terms did Biden serve in the senate? How many terms did Palin serve as governor? Okay, she only served a term? No? She just served half a term? :eek:


Yeah, let's nominate her and Big Bird from Sesame Street to run in 2012. :thumb:

I am an independently wealthy UFC fighter with a degree in Quantum Physics, just like everyone else on the internet. Or I could be a beauty school dropout with 10 kids and loads of foodstamps, but it really wouldn't matter because the Republican party has neither nominated me for vice president or pinned all their hopes on me for 2012. Only incredibly accomplished politicians like Palin get to have that honor. :)



Don't go blue in the face, you're a good egg, and I'm just having some fun. Besides, you wouldn't be here if you didn't like to argue as well. My entire family is far-right conservative, so I get to say to you guys what I wish I could say at Christmas dinner. Bet I'm not alone in that. :taped:

Okay, I really don't want you to get the mistaken impression that it is in any way reasonable to compare Obama's accomplishments to Palin's, so I'm going to stop now. :D:

It's the FX johns and kripistoff's that keeps Palin in the spotlight. These clowns comment on everything she does to include getting her hair done. She probably would have faded from the limelight if it weren't for shrill liberal men(?) who keep whining and droning on and on about her.
Go back to Cher watching, it takes up less time.

I don't think anyone thinks Obama is dumb, he is not. He is wicked smart. Just because you are smart does not make you wise.
I bet if we found the smartest people in the world we would be very unhappy with how they lead us. Intelligence does not mean they possess compassion or the simplest common sense.
Just for kicks and giggles, imagine Sheldon from Big Bang Theory as president. Now do you think life would be more plesent with Sheldon running the show or Jeff Foxworthy.
