snippy manicurist and snippy client
My hands were really dry, cuticles out grown, etc.. I went for a manicure to get me back on track ( a $30 manicure that includes a paraffin treatment).
I always go to the same spa, this was a new girl; I took a few seconds to locate the color I usually use and she said: " we really have to get started, I'm booked solid" so I rush back to the table. She takes one look at my hands and says, with a serious face, looking me straight in the eye:
"do you use hand cream?"
I burst out laughing, (I had had a rough day, don't mess with me) so I said:
"now that's a loaded question, do you mean to ask me if I EVER use it, or do I KNOW I should use it, or do you mean my hands are so far gone you're not sure you can do anything for these babies?"
She relaxed a bit after listening to my answer, told me to use cuticle oil and hand creme everyday, ( like I don't know that stuff already, give me a break); if I book a manicure , repair my hands and I'll pay you gladly, don't ask me
"do you use hand creme?"
Some days a simple question can set me off.
