Also, it won't take them long to straighten it unless there's a serious defect to begin with. If you're worried about missing your next shinny, or couple rec games, I would not sweat it. Odds are on they can straighten it right away, or worse, sell you new blades. I doubt you will be out of skates for any period of time because of this.
That has nothing to do with the straightness of the steel, but rather, the levelness of the edges.
