    Me: “Hi, welcome to [nail salon]. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, we had an appointment for four mani/pedis.”

    Me: “Okay, can I get your name? And how old are these three?”

    Customer: “Why do you need to know how old they are?”

    Me: “If they’re under 12, they get Princess mani/pedis which are ten dollars less.”

    Customer: “No. I want them to have real mani/pedis.”

    Customer: “I want them to have REAL mani/pedis! You’re trying to give them half-a**ed service!”

    Customer: “…Well in that case, yes. They’re all under 12.”
