And then there was...

the male half of the couple's massage, who apparently thought that since HIS therapist had already left the room, it was okay for him to disrobe. Despite the fact that I was still standing there, talking to his pregnant wife.

I've never seen a man shuck his clothes so quickly...outside of a porno. I thought he'd merely taken off his shirt, but his pants must've had some kind of built-in translocation spell, 'cause he was actually down to his tighty-whities.

Seeing his thumbs tucked in the waistband of said underoos in preparation for the final reveal, I shrieked at calmly asked him to please wait until I left the room to get undressed, holding my clipboard up in front of me to block my view of him as I finished my intake interview. Then I skedaddled.

I deserve an extra tip for this whole affair. Hazard pay, just sayin'...

I understand that there's a professional propriety, but I know that you're not offended by nudity, so I'm a little confused.

I have no issue with nudity. The issue is that legally, I'm required to be out of the room while my client gets undressed and on the table. Plus, he wasn't even my client! The whole situation was awkward, because I wasn't finished conducting my intake interview with my client while her husband was getting undressed in my line of sight. Plus, it's just a funny story. :D
