The events I’m about to tell you may shock some of you. All of this normal stuff makes what happened all the more bizarre.
I was working at the salon the other night and was about to close up. Normally, we try to enforce the final tanning session to be at 7:50 because we close at 8pm. But occasionally we get these weasels trying to get in here at closing and say things like, “oh are you closing?” Like they don’t know what kind of nonsense they’re trying to pull. As if the rules don’t apply to these assholes. People like that are so obnoxious. They can’t get their clock or calendar together and are probably lousy employees where they work. “Oh, this is in late?” “Oh, sorry I was in traffic. Did the meeting start already?”
I live and die by the clock and pride myself on always punctual and respectful of other people’s time.
But there have been customers we like that blaze in here at closing and because they’ve built a solid report with us, we let it slide. There’s this one guy especially that comes in sweating and panting because he ran all the way here. He’s charming and nice and refers all of his friends here. He’s also tipped me on half a dozen occasions for being late or just for no reason at all. Money talks if you’re stepping over the line. One night he tipped me $10 just because he came in late. I told him he could come in at closing every night if that was what I was going to get. I locked the door and cranked up the music to the type of music he likes.
So it depends. But normally we’re annoyed if some asshole rolls in at closing while we’re mopping and just trying to get out of here and on with our lives.
So I’m wrapping it up one night and it’s like five of eight. We’re done. I’m locking the door and little Kita is running up the steps.
I remember when she first came into the salon. She’s a tiny cute Asian girl. She has dyed her hair blonde and it looks terrific. She has a sweet face and a slamming athletic lean body. She loves to go tanning and always wants to get really dark. I don’t understand that but she’s so cute I don’t care if she turns black.
I think I’ve always had a thing for Asian women. There’s something about their beauty and manners. They’re mostly all petite and fit and always have a great sense of fashion. I mean, I love all races of women, but I think my favorite could be Asian women.
Tune in tomorrow for the next chapter!
