I have many friends who would agree with this... they have stopped getting manicures because every place open in their town the women there were
either of Korean or Vietnamese descent, and spoke in their language the entire time my friends were getting their nails manicured, until it was time
They state it was very awkward and uncomfortable for them, because, frankly, one feels like the last one picked for dodgeball when two/ three/ four
women are conversing giggling, etc... in a foreign language in front of people who are strangers and cannot get up and walk away.
Who knows if they were discussing the weather, their dates, or what? I don't think this is a racist thing, just a cultural void. They weren't
uncomfortable with the race of the nail techs, just the fact that they felt like they were being talked about and mocked the whole time, every time
they went... they couldn't understand a word spoken. There was a Seinfeld episode about this once, I think... hahaha.
There was no other alternative to go for nail care, because the salons in town has stopped offering nail services, due to the cornering of the market
by these places. Does anyone else who gets their nails done at these places run into this?
