My perspective on this pedicure may be a bit skewed by the total disaster of my pedicure experience on Friday. We were on time and the took walk-in customers and filled up every chair. The said they were sorry but it will be at least a half an hour. They called a tech over from another shop to help out. I got stuck with her. I got the McDonalds drive-thru experience in pedicures. No sooner than the water shut off because it was full, she had my foot out of the water and went to work at pit crew speed. She was going so fast she jabbed me with the tool they use to dig stuff out from under your nails. She was aiming for the towel but grazed my foot. I don't even remember her pushing my cuticles back. If you zoom in on the pictures you can see a ridge of cuticle, which she painted! She was in such a rush massaging my legs, I thought she was going to pull all the hairs out of my legs. I never had anyone pull on my toes so much. I wanted to fart because it reminded me of the pull my finger joke. It took me and two girls next to me to get her to understand what I wanted. After she was done she practically ran out the door. It was apparent she hadn't wanted to come to this shop and wanted to hit the road ASAP. I told the owner I felt like I got a rush job. His English sucks too. He just kept apologizing for the late start. If it were not for the fact that I take my Aunt for her weekly appointments here, I would be trying somewhere else. One more shitty experience and I will drop her off and go for mine a couple of blocks away.
One positive, The girls next to me said they wished they could get their boyfriends to come with them for pedicures. The girl next to me like the flowers with rhinestone I had so much, she asked for that on her toes.
My diet change is still yielding good results. I feel better and take half the meds I used to take. I am hoping that once I trim down, I can do more of my own pedicures and spend the time to make them look like the picture in my head.
