That’s terrible!!!/BLOG

I always admire people who could draw, paint, do hair,  lashes,  eye brows, sew, have a eye for fashion design,  remodeling homes, and things like that. 

But why when I see people using their gifts and talents, their family and close friends feel that they should get free services or discounts more than often? I think that is disrespectful to the gift. Let me explain why. Family are the #1 people who  burn out their family members when it comes to free services. These people are using their talents to build their business, its not fair to want them to “do you” for free or little to nothing. This is how they feed their families and pay bills. Its not fair to expect free services from them.

Someone told me before… that being cheap is the practice of being selfish.

I hate to hear people say, “my cousin did my hair for free, I don’t have to pay”. That’s terrible!!! How could anyone sit for free, not offer anything to show appreciation, convenience or anything. A tip or something. They brag and feel some kinda “good” way about it. . WHY SHOULD YOU KEEP GETTING DISCOUNTS? SO YOU CAN KEEP YOUR MONEY, AND USE UP MY TIME? People don’t think about that. That’s being cheap and selfish. People who always want discounts or pay little to nothing, will always want to keep THAT money in their pockets, while they get what they want. 

When I was working cashier…. man you wouldn’t believe the people who wanted things for little to nothing. Always looking for a little dirt or scratch on their items for a discount.. use to PISS ME OFF. And I would say to the customer in a nice voice: AS A PERSON….. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN WANT THIS? The answer to that was, because I can always go home and wash it. OKAY SO AND….. what feeling would you get if I gave you .50 off? I MEAN LIKE DAYUM? I just didn’t get it. There were times when I wanted to reach in my pocket and hand them a $1.00 bill. But to be honest, that wouldn’t be the same to those kinds of people. They want MONEY off that merchandise… not from your pockets. LOL  Anyway… I just wanted to know so that I can process it in my mind to understand. I love people and when I don’t understand something, I will ask questions. I try to ask it in a non confrontational way. 

Just something I wanted to share.

 Be Blessed!

What am I gonna do? * brow and nails* Blog entry :(

janine

Hey,

So…. I’ve been getting my nails and brows done by Asians Shop owners HUSBAND AND WIFE… Amy and John. He does my nails and she does my brows. I’ve been going to them faithfully for 11-12 years straight!!! When I go to the shop John is the only person I let do my nails, and trust me, he wont let anyone in his shop do them anyway…. lol. She does nails too, but she specialize in brows. One day she was real busy and I walked in, she pointed to one of her other techs, and said to me… she can do your brow. I looked at her, I said Amy come here…. she said huh? I said LOOK, pointing to my eyebrows with a straight face, and so that no one else could hear… “NOBODY DO BROW BUT AMY OKAY”? She cracked up laughing!!!! She said okay, but she do good job. I looked at her and said I don’t care how long it takes… I’ll sit here and wait for you. She got my point, and so I waited for her. Now, there has been times in the past where I would le one of her gurls do my brows… because yes they did a great job. But if she’s there I will wait. But no one has ever, ever, ever, done my nails for 11-12 years except john. NO ONE EVER. Not one person.

Yesterday, as me and Nesha was entering the shop * I notice everything* I saw a note on the window saying that they’re open on Tuesdays. I know Amy and John close on that day. So, I walked in and OMG….I saw this Asian man sitting in John’s chair. I spoke to everyone there, and said” hey where is Amy and John?” The man sitting in John’s chair * I almost passed out seeing him sit there* he said they’re on vacation, they went back home , they will be back”. So, I’m like okay. Now, I’m standing there debating if I should leave out of the door or stay. I decided that since I wasn’t getting my nails done, that maybe I could try out one of these ladies to do my brows. So, we go and sit in the brow section, they “man sitting in john’s chair” kept looking at me. As he was doing that, I was looking around saying to Neshia, this place feels different. I said I don’t feel Amy and john’s SPIRIT around here. I can discern Spirits, and I didn’t feel them AT ALL.

As, I’m sitting in the chair looking around, the “man” is still doing nails and looking at me…. look around this shop. Then I see new things, and things moved a certain way from how Amy had them. I said to Nesha, NO… NO…. UM um that man is lying, this is his shop now. Nesha says ma, please don’t say nothing to that “man”, you gone embarrass me. I said gurl… something aint right around here and I know it. So, her phone ranged and that was my time to ask this “man”. One of those times he was watching me and done with his client…. I put my finger up and said come here okay? He came over to me. And I looked him dead in the eyes, and said in a real low voice….. tell the truth okay? Is this your shop now? He said Yes. He said Amy and John went back to their country because someone is very sick in the family * her mom or his mom* and they went back to take care of them. He said they didn’t want to leave and want to come back soon, but for now, I’m taking care of it for them. I said okay…. Thank you for telling me the truth. I said it doesn’t not feel for same in here. They had it fixed up very nice and cozy, but the point I’m making is, ITS NOT AMY AND JOHN. He went on to say that he would take care of me, and that he hopes I continue to do business there. I was happy, and told him that I look forward to it.

When it comes to a woman’s clothes, shoes, eyelashes, nails, hair, home. WE DON’T PLAY. We are very, very, very, picky. That’s just how we are. So, as the lady was doing my brows. I kept asking myself why am I letting her do this? Then I thought if Amy is not here and has no plans of returning, I have to learn to trust somebody. As she was doing them, my mind is spinning. I’m thinking Father God in the name of Jesus, please don’t let my facial expression * Nene Leakes* show how I’m feeling about her doing my brows. Please God let me be nice, and let me say the right things, in a nice voice. Please let my brows come out pretty. So, when I saw them, my facial expression was good and I love my brows.

I guess the point I’m making is….. I miss Amy and john, and for now I don’t know who is going to do my brows and nails. I’m sad…. so sad. Well, at least I do know how to always get in touch with my hairstylist Janine. Even though I don’t get my hair cut and curl often *I curl my own hair when its long* she is the ONLY, THE ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY one who I’ll let  do it. She’s been doing my hair for 21 years since Nesha was 6 years old. I let someone experiment on my hair ONE time and that was it. *felt guilty too* lol No one has done my hair EVER SINCE * she can sang too           * Janine * her in the photo above*

So, I’m feeling some kinda way today. I feel like I’ve been abandoned. 😦

Be Blessed
