please note this post makes reference to the June 26 episode on CBC
what you need to know: Karl and Sunita have a quick legover, Stella takes Karl back but obviously knows nothing about the legover, Tommy buys a beat-up VW camper van and Tina is thrilled, Peter bans Leanne from seeing Simon, Sally and Carla are to become business partners, David gets fired from the snooty hair salon and he and Kylie decide to become squatters in Audrey's salon.
Call the Guinness Book of Records because I think David Platt is setting a new standard for getting fired from hair styling salons. As, ol' Davey himself says, he's just been fired from two salons in two weeks.
But wait, there's more. Do you remember when David was working at a similarly upscale salon and his girlfriend of the time (Tina, if you can believe it) came in and made a scene which resulted in David getting.. um.. fired.
Now fast forward to yesterday's episode and we find Mr. Platt toiling on the bottom rung of the hair styling ladder sweeping up hair and making coffee (I hope he doesn't get those tasks mixed up - ed). It's a horrible fate (even for David) and the snooty, supercilious senior stylist (the enigmatically named 'Aaron') doesn't make things any better with his snarky comments. Aaron really should compile a collection of his wit and wisdom in some kind of book, maybe it would go something like this:
"There's no shortcuts in the hair styling business - just extensions."
"Doing highlights is the highlight of my day"
"When a customer asks for a rat tail, could he be asking for the story of David's life?"
"Do you think that cup's going to wash itself? (It will when we replace you with a Japanese-manufactured robot)"
"David, keep working hard -- and one day you'll dye"
"Before Kylie sticks that brush up my nose... I'd like to mullet over"
