there's the client who's a professional violinist.
That's not the unusual part.
This is: First, he asks me to make sure that NO music with violins is played. When I explain that I have no control over the music the spa pipes in, only the volume of said music, he insists on my turning the music off if ANY violins are in it. It makes for quite the awkward massage experience, for both of us, I'm sure.
I'm on tenterhooks the entire time, prepared to LUNGE for the wall and the volume control knob at the first hint of strings...then to try to estimate how long that particular, violin-polluted song will last. It's not fun.
Yes, I could just turn the music off entirely, but my client doesn't want that. He just doesn't want VIOLINS.
Repeat mantra in my head: The client is king. The client is king. The client is king. Big tip. Big tip. Big tip...
