How long does your tailor take?

Decided to try out a new tailor today (I moved).

I needed some denim to get hemmed 2" shorter (Who the hell rocks a 34" inseam anyway?) and buttons sewn onto a shirt (nothing fancy, they just fell off)

She originally gave me a two and a half week turnaround.

Then I flipped and she reduced it to a week and a half.

Is this normal? My old one hemmed my denim in 2-3 days.

My place does most things in 24 hours - simple stuff like hems anyway - or you can pay a little extra and get it done in an hour.

SMH...

There are no real alternatives around so I guess the one I went to can do what she wants.
