Rep Power: 21 Bronze Star will become famous soon enough
What are people thinking? We sell Peepers for $3 + tax up front and have a pair in each room. We NEVER have a problem with goggles walking out. But recently when I can't find a pair in a room, I check the trash and 10 times out of 10 they are in the trash can.

I know who's doing it. I like these clients a lot. What the heck do I say?

maybe a little sign in the rooms? saying that the eyewear is provided for their use but it is not disposable? and "help keep prices low by leaving goggles on the shelf after use."

"Hey you, I saw what you did!" Just kidding.

Some of the sign ideas we've had in the past includes, but is not limited to:

If you splatter lotion, please take a moment to wipe it up, lest you see it again on your next visit.

If you need to go to the restroom, please tell us BEFORE we set your timer. Oh, and please put the seat down, turn off the light, and leave the TP roll where you found it.

Do you really need 5 extra towels?

We cannot exchange lotions because you decided you just didn't like the smell, tingle, bronzer, price, whatever.

Our "Free kitten given to each unattended child" sign means YOU!

24 hours = 24 hours.

Bottles of moisturizer from the vanity table are not for you to take into a room with you, nor to be placed in your purse.

There are trash cans (not to be confused with portable toilets) in each room, the restroom, lobby, and under the vanity table: please practice free shots at your mom's house.

If you wish to negotiate prices, please present your formal proposal in writing by the 15th of each month to our budget commitee. Please keep in mind that if you elect to take this route, we must charge a negotiation fee, formal proposal grammar & punctuation (editing/deciphering) fee, and budget committee assembly fee added to whatever fair dollar amount you feel we should agree to. And if we agree, there is an agreement acceptance fee. We will give you an answer the day after our rent is paid on the 1st of each month.

If you are seeking employment please turn in your 500 word, typed, double-spaced essay on the benefits of tanning after you go home, take a shower, brush your teeth, and borrow your big sister's favorite business suit (no, the platform shoes won't work). Stick your gum under your dashboard prior to entering the building, please. If you called yesterday, the answer is still no.

If you have been tanning for 20 years with no lotion nor eyewear and always have to burn before getting dark, your lobotomy is scheduled for next week. For best results please avoid engaging brain until then.

Nope, been collecting/formatting these since July 9, 2001 when we bought salon #1. I've also had a little time off lately, too much time on my hands, er space in my head, perhaps? Enjoy, I'm sure I forgot a few.
