(Newser) – Hairdresser Rhonda Halliday doesn’t think Sarah Palin was out to screw her, but screw her she did. Halliday was asked to do Palin's hair at the ex-governor's hotel just before her book signing at a Utah Costco. Palin’s flak told her to rush over, and use the valet parking, which Halliday dutifully did. But once she’d finished the job, Palin and her entourage ran out without saying a word—and without paying, she tells Paul Rolly of the Salt Lake City Tribune.

The disgruntled Halliday collected her car, only to find that Palin’s people hadn’t paid for the valet either. A friend later contacted Palin’s assistant, and was told to send an invoice. There’s no word yet, but hey, maybe the check is in the mail?
