hi geeks
i went to sallys today to get some tips...(i know not many geeks like tips lol)
anyway i do (as thats all i know at the moment)
i needed only two sizes,7 and 6.My size 6 tips (which do say size 6 on the front) are defentley NOT A SIZE 6 they fit like a size 10! but it does say on the back of every tip that they are a size 6....:rolleyes:has anyone else had this happen?because i have never had this problem before,so annoyed as sallys is far from me its in town (hour away) as i am in a tiny village miles from anywhere lol! anyway,has anyone else found that they have recived wrong tip sizes in packets??
thank you for reading x x

have you tried getting a tip out of your new box of number 6' and then get one thats a size 9 to compare? if they match up then there the same size.if so phone sallys tommorrow and explain whats happened.maybe they will be able to send you the right size as you dont live that close and its there mistake.
just a thought:)

yes i have done that,they do match up as the same size across the width but these size 6 tips are a longer length than my other size 9..so they must be a 9 right?? but don't know why the length is longer on these than the 9's in my box when they are all mercia tips

thats a wierd one.i use mercia aswell and ive never heard of this.if the width matches then they are definately a size 9 so the fact that one is longer than the other doesnt really matter as they have put the wrong size on them. i would def ring them in the morning and explain whats happened.you never know they might send you the correct size?
