Give me the lingo to un ring my bell

I got a bad hair cut today. I need the words when I go to get it fixed to make sure it doesn't happen again.

I have had a bob many many times in the past. I decided to do it again. We just moved so I had to find a new stylist. I brought a couple of pictures to show what I wanted. A bob that was slightly longer in the front, swooping beneath my chin. I said I don't want it to look like a mushroom. I got a mushroom.
I understand that this is a very precise cut. In the past it was cut so the ends locked in to each other and it curved nicely under. This does not.at.all. My ends are sticking out and it is as though it is stacked in the wrong direction. It is also about an inch above my chin. Looks like a victorian page boy or a bell or a mushroom.
I have already washed it and styled it again to see if I could make it work and it just wont. It isn't laying well at all. I let the stylist know at the time that it wasn't what I had in mind and that it was too short and boxy. She said to give it a couple of days. I know my hair and I know the way it was cut in the past. This is not going to work. It isn't blended well either. I have already called the salon and requested that it be fixed by another stylist who is more familiar with bobs and thick hair. Getting it taken care of later this week.
Like I said, I know this cut works on my hair when done right. I need the words to explain. I used to be able to just blow dry it under with a round brush and the ends would lock nicely without much effort. This cut I had to straighten the heck out of the make the ends remotely lay well. She used thinning scissors and there are weird not quite layers that are also making it look uneven. I specifically asked for the all one length illusion for the top portion.
I don't want to get her in trouble and say anything negative about her and her techniques when I get it fixed, how do I explain it to the new stylist without being too negative but also being very precise and make sure I don't walk out with something worse.
