I am rejecting this response because:I have had contact with Diorina from Pierre & Carlo. She expressed herself as so did I. After reading her response I'm floored that she is calling me a BULLY in her response letter. At no time did I ever bully, berate or disrespect her or anyone on her staff. I expressed my concerns as calmly as possible considering the circumstances. I see that she was able to find the error that was made, she has no right in being mad at me and yes my friend did purchase the certificates that were intended for me, and for her to say that my friend should be the one that should be upset is true and so should I. I was the one along with my husband that was humiliated in front of others not my friend. Even when 'I went to social media I only spoke the truth and never spoke a bad word about her staff, only the poor treatment that I received. I will now let social media know that she has resorted to name calling. And if I'm such a BULLY and mean person why did we still give the person that gave the massage a gratuity for the service that she performed on us. That doesn't sound like something a BULLY would even consider doing after all it wasn't her fault that the salon made the mistake, we wouldn't dare take it out on her. Diorina, I thought that after we made contact on Face Book that things would be more cordial between us, but I am highly offended by your BULLY remarks. SHAME ON YOU, MISS BUSINESS OWNER, IS THIS HOW YOU REFER TO CUSTOMERS THAT ARE NOT HAPPY. ONCE AGAIN, SHAME ON YOU.
