Valentine's Day Everyday

It's been a few days after the day and I recount the experience
leading up to the hype that is Valentine's Day. I'm glad it's over
because it was a little expensive for me. I understand why some people
say we should celebrate V-day everyday but it gets stressful and

Customer said she was promised $10 an hour by my hair stylist, when in
fact it should have been around $25. My hair stylist started
whispering to me about the situation, how they failed to understand
what she meant about the advertised reduced rate, and how she will
probably get fired over this. She started to cry saying this is the
last I'll be seeing of her at the salon. I felt bad for her, and
worried a little about what she might do to my hair. Not sure if I
have ever gotten a haircut from a crying hairstylist, so I continued
to listen in.She said that she was hated at that salon by one very mean
co-harstylist, who talked about…
