Today I received two tweets mentioning me on twitter. They both said:
So and so and @naomisayers00 got mentions today in @themetrolondon
Or something close to that…
So, I went to the metronews.ca/london website to see what I tweeted that was printed in London ON newspaper. What was tweeted? My tweet that read:
Getting nails did. Same salon. Same cute girl. Lovely Sunday. #ldnont
Who is the girl that did my nails? Well, her English name is “Mimi.” This is the second time she has done my nails. I liked it the way it was done the first time, so I went back for a second time.
This time, I wanted had a bit more conversation with her. I found out she works 7 days a week. Yes, that’s 7 days. No weekend off. Although she would like to go to Niagara Falls, but as she said… “She has to work.”
She works full-time shifts (That means open to close, every single day of the week). She says she likes work but I am not sure if she is just told to say that…because when I was her age (She is much younger than me. That’s 4 years younger), I know that I wasn’t working 7 days a week…
She also told me she had family in Vietnam. She misses them and loves them. Maybe someone might say that I shouldn’t be writing about this but I wanted to share this–because well, it really bothers me when I see individuals like her who come to Canada, work in the service industry, and get treated horribly by their customers. Some people need to realize that some people have no choice for their job and how many hours they work. They. Have. To. Do. It.
After learning about her story, it made me wonder if she was here because she wanted to be or …. was that a different story all together? Hmmmm…
PS. Readers, next time you decide to *bitch* out someone for the services they provide…try to consider their life for one second before you worry about how *bad* your nails were did or how *awful* your car wash was… Really.
