Lady working on the lady to my lefts feet to her customer:
“He’s REALLY good at what he does.”
(Referring to the male worker to my right working on another customers feet)
They had me soaking for nearly a hour, as it was very busy today. Hearing her comment, made me silently wonder who was going to be working on my feet today. I guess whoever finished first…
She then added that he treats every ladies feet as if they were his own wife’s feet. Especially when he massages the ankles and calves. Taking his time. I looked over to the woman next to me who was leaned back in the chair with the neck and back massager on, sipping a cold one.
She looked very relaxed and he obviously knew what he was doing massaging her feet.
The only time she looked bothered to me, was when he would ask her if it felt good and should he go lighter or firmer with the massage. I then looked back up the lady to my left who was working on the other customers feet when I heard an OUCH! Apparently she was not too gentle and had already moved on to cutting the toenails and accidentally cut some skin. I started to panic, as it has taken me years to get comfortable with having someone besides myself give me a pedicure. I asked the lady if she was alright. She said she was. There was a moment of silence, before she commented back to the lady working on her feet…
“Well I certainly will request him next time.” She said. I looked once more to the right, noticing the lady, now with her eyes open and noticing that I made eye contact with her. She commented to me that he needs to work on me next, because he really knows what he’s doing. I replied okay! He heard and asked me if I wanted him to give me my pedicure. I said sure. He said okay and that he will make sure I’m satisfied. Then the other worker to my left told him something on Vietnamese, Which sounded sort of snarky. He laughed, and I continued to patiently wait my turn. I honestly feel that things get lost and added in translation of different languages. Words such as feel good and satisfied will always seem suggestive in the English language. But they are probably purely innocent in another.
Then the Conversation switched to this.
The Lady customer to my left asked the lady working on her feet if her kids have grandparents.
She said they do, but they are back in Vietnam.
Customer: “Well I’m here so much that I feel as part of the family, I’d love to be your kids United States grandma. How about I make a pot of chili next weekend and have you, your husband, and kids over to my house. I can buy everything and you all just bring yourselves. How does that sound?
Lady Worker: That would be wonderful. My kids would love that!
Customer: “Do your kids like S’mores?”
Worker: “I don’t know what that is.”
Customer explained it.
Worker replied that it sounds yummy and then they exchanged numbers.
After a hour and half soak, my turn was next and yes! He was excellent. My hubby was waiting himself and afterwards said that it looked as if I was really enjoying myself.
Seriously? A wife can get a pedi and enjoy it. 😁
The other lady ended up working on him. He left with toe bandages due to the cuts and blood. 😂
