Tallahassee, FL asked in Civil Rights and Employment Discrimination for Florida

Q: My barber cancelled my appointment after messing up the previous two haircuts.

He almost completely removed my wisdom lock(the only one I have) I heard and felt when his hands slipped after feeling him tug on it. I immediately reached back to feel what he had done. I said you cut my dread and his response was oops, no apology of any sort, I became very upset and quiet to let him finish so I could pay and leave. I didn't yell, argue, or deny him pay. But I was very offended when he didn't own his mistake or apologize. So weeks later I'm in need of a cut I schedule and I received a confirmation then 30 mins later a cancellation, with a note attached saying, "I don't want to cut you, your energy be off, sorry. Is this acceptable??
