Talking to myself

Why is it that the majority of "salon specialists" are Asian? And how is it that they have bat-like hearing?

I don't know how many times I've been getting a pedicure and the little Vietnamese woman scrubbing my feet whispers something so inaudibly that I ask, "What?" And while she's giving me the "you dumb American girl" look, another Asian woman from the back of the spa whispers something back and the foot-scrubber HEARS it.

It irks me that they may be talking about my toes and I DON'T KNOW IT. TALK LOUDER OR YOU'RE NOT GETTING A TIP.

This is true, I've also found they're quite brutal with the scraper thing they use on your soles. Where I'm from the taxi drivers are asian and with some you have to write down where you want to go. With a map. Or they just take you to the train station.

LOL :)... Next time don't be embarassed to ask again what they were saying until they tell you. Why should you have to be left wondering? They probably did it on purpose for you to not understand...

DAMN...that is so true. Nut...what I DO wonder is why they always seem to be the only ones to be able to cut my hair (which is wavy and all over the fucking place...definitely not Asian hair) properly? Perhaps this would be something best explored in an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries"...
