Where have I been?!??

I know you all are asking yourselves,"Where did Hair girl go?"

Let me do a 2 week recap-

*I had to fire one of my nail techs
*I am the Fundraising chair for the PTA
*I have volunteered to teach 1st grade Sunday School
*We are finishing up the remodel on the salon
*School started yesterday


I will start with the firing.

Due to the remodel on the salon, we are changing out all the yucky, fluorescent lighting. Here come the can lights and track lights! I needed to take down a white ceiling fan that was in the pedicure area.
Paint boy called me on Wednesday night and I wrote a Post-it to remind myself to talk to the Nail Tech in the am. I wrote "Fan going bye-bye".
Nail Tech got to work early on Thursday and went Spider Monkey crazy!
She was stomping around the salon screaming at everyone. I walked in the door and she went off on me.

"IF THE FAN GOES, I GO," she screeched.
"All righty then," was all I could think to say, as I was surrounded by clients.

You did read that correctly, there were clients in the salon!

She kept on, "YOU GIVE ME A STRAIGHT ANSWER. IS IT ME OR THE FAN?!??"
"We'll talk about this later."
"I WANT A YES OR A NO! ARE YOU TAKING DOWN THE FAN?"

I said "no" just to shut her up.

My client that was being shampooed came to my chair, totally embarrassed. She and her mother are clients of the Nail Tech and myself. Her only comments, "Wow, nothing like an ultimatum to start off your day. I guess I need to find someone else to do my toes." Oh, Sh!t.

I was so mad that it was hard to finish out my day. After work I blew off all my errands and went to lunch and shopping. Retail Therapy always helps!

Needless to say, I tried calling the Nail Tech all day on Friday to "discuss" the situation. No return calls. I had to send her an email to move her stuff out. I know super lame to fire someone by email, but she wouldn't return my call and I wanted her crap out before Tuesday.

Do you know she took everything when she cleared out but the d@mn fan!

OK, did you get a new nail tech? And does she speaka the english? Because I would seriously consider one that won't talk about me in a language I don't understand and then smile and say "you marry?"

Otherwise, I'm a do it yourselfer.
