I told a stranger I loved him

Yes, I did.
I wanted the Earth to swallow me.

I worked in a salon in a very upmarket area, most of the clients were really nice, but a few were total snobs. We had been extremely busy all week, I was mentally and physically exhausted (this is my excuse and I am sticking to it)

A man phoned he had heard great things about us and wanted to make an appointment. I told him we were looking forward to having him as a new client. As we were saying goodbye, I said "Goodbye, Love you"

There was silence on the other end and I hoped that meant he hadn't heard me and the call had been disconnected already.
Instead he answered awkwardly "Erm... okay thank you"
"Okay, you welcome"

Really?! You welcome?!
I refused to answer the phone for the rest of the day.

So what happened when he came to the salon a few days later?
He wanted the hairdresser that loves him to cut his hair.
