Too good not to share...

even though it's second-hand.

I had planned on regaling you with tales of lesbian shenanigans at our spa, but instead will share a certified TRUE story I heard at A.'s surprise birthday party last night. The party rocked, btw. I only drank water, honest.

Anyway. B., my supervisor who's been out on disability the past month, told us something her friend, who works the front desk of Qua, the incredibly luxe spa at Caesar's Palace, shared with her the last time they were lunching together. Incidentally, I'd die to work at Qua. Really, I would. The lead therapists clear six figures a year, no joke. Though I'm not sure how they are doing right now, with the economy in the crapper as it is.

On to the story!

The spa attendants at Qua pool their tips and divvy them up at the end of the week. Well, recently the spa attendants from the Gentlemen's spa had been clearing a thousand bucks a week and no one could figure out why. The massage therapists were complaining, since business had slowed down for them and they weren't getting the tips they felt they deserved.
One day, the manager received a customer comment card with the following:

"Blow job given by attendant _________ inadequate."

D'oh!!!!

Needless to say that the attendant was fired!

But at least the mystery of the massive tips was solved! I wonder whether the other spa attendants are now contemplating providing "extra" services...

That's a hoot! I was disappointed when you said you weren't going to tell the lesbian stories, but this was more than adequate replacement :-)

I wonder if the comment card went into particulars about WHY it was inadequate? Funny stuff.

Christina... you're running a SERIOUS risk of confirming some of the shabbier stereotypes in this space, ya know. ;-)

But: Funny!!

Suldog, it's amazing that a guest would feel comfortable writing a comment like that, no? I believe that's all that was on the card..."inadequate." That must sting for the attendant...not only did he lose his job over this, but to be told he gives sucky head (hah! No pun intended)? That's too sad.

Buck, it was news to me! Same with the lesbian goings-on at OUR spa, which I'll share with you all some other time. I didn't have a clue!

Umm...ok. Weird.

Christina LMT said...

Tally, too true.

That must sting for the attendant...not only did he lose his job over this...

HE? Did you say HE? OMFG...

I most certainly DO lead a sheltered life...

I know where I'm headed the next time I'm in Vegas.

Christina LMT said...

Oops, Buck. My bad! I guess I didn't make it clear enough; I thought it was understood that MALES are the attendants in the men's spa, and FEMALES in the women's spa!

Trash, BJs or no, Qua is probably the most luxurious spa out there.
