    she never made it to the train tracks. I think she went back home and blew her cash hiring equally disiillusioned Bay City Rollers (scottish “band”) to play her one person parties every S A T U R D A Y night.

    “Toodle toodle.” I can’t. I’m seriously crying. I too have been victimized in such a salon, and I am more than certain they have made fun of me in their own languages. The upside is that I’ve had the Chinese character tattoo on my ankle confirmed about 10,000 times. It definitely does not say soy sauce.

      Nail salon gals have TOTALLY patented the “oooh… you want to walk around looking like THAT?” look. I’m sure I don’t want to know what they actually say…

    Since I didn’t see the first other poster, I’m going to pretend that her other hand is completely un-manicured and the nails are all hangnails and bitten nubs.

    Maybe after the TRS-80 was discontinued, a new model was purchased for the office, but due to the brain damage she had sustained she was unable to cope with the new technology. When her boss and now ex-lover fires her, in a maniacal rage she uses her perfectly manicured Nails of Death to rip his heart out, for all the heartbreak and insult and lack of Workman’s Comp.

      Oooh… I like that one two… maybe I should change this into a “build a story.” Follow a path… does she get her nails painted red or pink? One leads to death…

    Been to a nail salon but once. Asked them where the best Vietnamese food in town was. They directed to me “Pho Little Saigon”

    In Little Saigon I got trapped in the restroom and kept banging on the door as employees shuffled by and giggled. It’s a nail salon – dirty restaurant conspiracy. They were born to laugh at us and our big feet.

      Maybe you accidentally went to FAUX Little Saigon, because they are notorious for their bathroom traps…

    I like to think that her tremendous nails helped her become the worlds greatest computer hacker via her TRS-80, until she accidentally broke into the military’s WOPR super computer and started playing battleship with real live nuclear submarines but then ends up marrying Ally Sheedy. They later win the lottery or something so that’s where the money comes from.

      Well I think the Internet was still the Arpanet in 1980’s so she couldn’t have possibly been a hacker… andHolyCrapI’mANerd.. But the Ally Sheedy thing makes total sense. Remind me to do my Ally Sheedy voice for you should we ever meet.
