Where has the time gone?

So I'm a terrible blogger! I didn't post once during the month of July. So here it goes, I'm going to attempt to keep up with this wonderful site! Today's topic....nail salons!

I went on Sunday to have a relaxing pedicure with my boyfriend's sister and mom for their birthdays. I was excited because I usually start my summer off with a good pedicure to get rid of my dry winter feet, but because I didn't have a job, the trip was postponed a little bit. The pedicure started out great! The spa looked clean and wasn't packed. We got seats right away and we were off.

...and then I realized. I had the tech from you know where! He didn't really speak English....only knew the words that were in reference to the price sheet. I wanted to have my fingernails repainted, but he couldn't understand that, so I stuck with just the toes.

As the pedicure moved on, the more pain I was in. I must have been in dire need of exfoliation because this guy went to town! I couldn't decide if I was being tickled so much it hurt or if it just plain hurt! I didn't think I was going to have any skin on the bottom of my feet when he was done. YIKES!

I managed to pull through and really loved then end of the pedicure because it involved a lotion massage of the feet and calves (I even remembered to shave my legs before I went! Ha!) I got a french manicure on the piggies because its the only thing I'm not that good at when it comes to painting. Figured I'd just let someone else do it.

The pedicure was finished and my toes were dry enough to put on my shoes. I got up to pay and as I did, I watched my tech pick up his tote of tools and get started on the next girl's pampering. Sounds innocent, right? Well let me tell you that all the tools that were used on my feet were being used on girl number 2 without being cleaned in between!!!! AHHHH! I'm not saying that I have some funky fungus that would be passed on, but what about the people that got pedicures before me? I didn't think to ask if the tools were sanitized...:( Maybe I'm going a little overboard, but I don't want my toes to shrivel up and fall off or something. What do you think? What's your best/worst nail spa story? I wanna hear 'em!

Enjoy your Tuesday!
