Crazy day.

Yeah, that was yesterday. It started off okay, until I got to work. I had an older male client whose chart was littered with "Deep Tissue Massage", who told me that he HATED deep tissue and wanted really light pressure. Turns out his son, a Jr., is also a regular client here and somehow the two charts were conflated. Now the front desk has to figure out which notes are for which client, and fix up two brand-new charts, which of course need to be signed by the respective men. *sigh*

Then I had a client who has the same name as another client and there were two charts and two files. Luckily we could figure out which was which by birthdate and address, and it doesn't appear that any of the therapists erroneously charted.

THEN, there was the new client who was wearing her bra AND a tanktop when I walked in (in addition to her underwear, which I have grown accustomed to here). I told her she needed to take the tops off if she wanted me to massage her, which took her aback (no pun intended). I'm sorry, but if you want a massage with your clothes on, go to the mall and get a chair massage. My patience for that sort of thing has run dry.

THEN there was the client (luckily not mine) who was jerking off during his massage. The therapist was almost done by the time she noticed, so she finished the massage and went and told the owners of the spa about it (unfortunately our manager, who always has our backs, wasn't there yesterday). They asked her if the client had touched her or said anything inappropriate, and when she told them no, he hadn't, they told her it was all okay.

WHAT. THE. FUCK?!?!?!?!?!?!

No, it is NOT okay. It's never okay for a client to masturbate during the massage, no matter whether he/she says or does anything else "inappropriate". Believe me, this is going to be addressed during our mandatory staff meeting Post-Holiday Party...

And finally, I got home and found my blog gone and my gmail inaccessible. Someone must have hacked my gmail account and done something that violated Google's Terms of Use (or whatever it's called.) I felt like a huge part of me was missing! Anyway, at least I got it all straightened out today and I'm BACK. Of course I changed my password. Here's hoping that today is a better day.

I had that experience with my blog the other day!
Must be going around.

You truly have some 'interesting' days at work... And not necessarily in a GOOD way... Hang in there Lady!

Um..... doesn't that count as sexual harassment? Assault?? SOMETHING! It has to be an arrestable offense! Also, can't the spa get in trouble if it get found out men are doing their handy's there? They might get accused of running a sex business!

well it couldn't get much worse ... unless one of your clients decide to play the trumpet during the massage ;)

GFA, it was disconcerting, to say the least!

Thanks, NFO!

Blondie, yeah it's bad. We need to really get it through to the owners that this is BAD.

Julie, it happens all the time. ;)

So interesting...and it wasn't even Friday the 13th yet.

I am a massage therapist and former blogger, and I must ask you whether any of your clients read your blog?

You expose quite a bit here.

Terry, none of my clients read this blog, or even know of its existence. In order to protect the anonymity of myself AND my clients, I also change details and mix things around a bit. And I often schedule blogposts ahead of time, so they get published days or sometimes weeks after the fact.
