Well ... Can You Even Believe What You Hear in the Salon! (Women Only Please!)
I had my nails done today! An ordinary, every two week experience for me. Usually I zone out, relax - it's about the only time I sit still for an hour and a half - and usually I even doze off!
Today! ... was different! Maybe the energy was different or maybe I just finally paid attention to the surrounding conversation!
I cannot believe the topics that were open for discussion.
One lady's tipsy alcoholic father who stayed with her for several day and wrecked havoc with her whole family ... not to mentions the bedroom rug when he didn't make it to the bathroom. Yep! I heard the whole story!
Another younger gal (twenty something) that was relaying her escapades with her new boyfriend and the recent weekend they stayed together.
Another gal who's son was picked up for a DUI and resisting arrest. He got probation and a fine!
Another patron whose ex son-in-law just got back into town from 5 months in prison for failure to pay child support!
All this in only 90 minutes ... my head was spinning!
This experience made me think!
Are we always exhibiting the most professional façade we can when we are with customers? I'd like to think that I am ... on the other hand; maybe we all need to take a little lesson from the "Beauty Shop Quartet" and think who may be listening what we have to say when we open our mouths to speak!
