I didn't work at all last week. The salon has slowed right down and so they haven't needed the extra pair of hands that I was providing. While the lack of income sucks, having time off to spend with Tomato Girl (who had finally arrived from New Zealand) was cool.
Besides, shampooing the hair of the upwardly mobile was getting a bit tedious and the not ever getting any tips was pissing me off. Surely if you can afford to blow $160 on highlights or $65 on a shampoo and blow dry you can afford a couple of dollars for the girl who gave you the really good head massage.
