The joys of massage...

do not include being repeatedly gassed by one's client. It is something to endure.
At least I'm not married to the man, like Rhyan's client in this couple's massage. SHE has to deal with his raunchy ass on a daily basis.

Maybe she has no sense of smell.

Love means putting up with your partner's gas.

Just ask HHH when I accidentally get some gluten.

Miz Minka said...

I guess that means he really relaxes during a massage. :P

Christina LMT said...

I know, I know, Blondie. But his was truly heinous.

Miz Minka...he started farting before the massage even began! Rhyan and I walked into the room and almost did an immediate about-face!

Kevin said...

Dang, you should get hazard pay for putting up with that. Methane IS toxic in enough quantities after all. Hope he tipped well, or at least had the grace to apologise...

Christina LMT said...

No apologies, Kevin. It is natural, after all. I remember the tip as being rather small, iirc.

Buck said...

Heh. "Occupational Hazards"... we ALL have 'em. Or had, as the case may be. :D

Christina LMT said...

Yup. Just like when my knuckles crack while I'm massaging; I always apologize with "Hazards of the profession!" Usually makes the client laugh. :)

dick said...

That's wrong in every way imaginable. I hope he tipped big.

For MTs it's a compliment really, isn't it?
BUT....
Did it go on for 45 minutes and did you think you were going to DIE from fart air? Yep, this one time.......
...
Well, we just must get together sometime and have a beer when you get to TX!

Christina LMT said...

Dick, you have no idea. ;)

Roismhaire, yup. The air in that room, and it's a BIG room, was totally foul by the time the massage was over. I mean absolutely RANK. I felt nauseous.

I look forward to hoisting a few with you, Roismhaire! It will be EPIC.

Great. I hope Jethro just keeps me busy on necks and shoulders. Started classes Monday.

Suldog said...

Now that's something I've never even thought about when I go to get a massage. I have never farted during one. Damn. Now I'll be thinking of it and worrying :-)

Christina LMT said...

Zelda...EXCELLENT! Good for you! You didn't end up choosing the hippie-dippy school, did you? ;)
And it doesn't matter WHAT you massage, people will fart on occasion. It's a sign of "release", and normally a compliment, as Roismhaire said. HOWEVER, some people's asses need to come with a biohazard warning. Just sayin'...

Jim, don't sweat it, really. :)

Zelda said...

Oh no. Definitely not the hippie dippy school. I couldn't have handled it.

The one I'm at is alright. I get mixed instructions from the massage instructors, the students are giddy, silly people, and anatomy and physiology bores me brainless, but one of the instructors is cute and I enjoy giving him an ironic smirk every time someone says something stupid.

Christina LMT said...

Wow, that means you're probably ironically smirking non-stop! ;)

Brigid said...

You're right, just be glad that he is home locked into a room with his wife and you are free of him.

You deserve better, AND bigger tips.

Christina LMT said...

Thanks, Brigid! Let me ask you something...is it possible for one's nasal receptors to become burnt out or overloaded? I really hope that's what happened to his wife!
