The hairdresser really cares if I am happy. She even goes the extra mile and dries my hair. Something I don't even do. Partly because the hairdryer has disappeared into Asshat #1's bedroom and I'm convinced he uses it to dry his balls.
Then, even though she knows I am going to go home and immediately shower (can't stand the hair clippings in the bra folks) she either curls it or straightens it. Before I leave she brings out her little hand mirror and lets me admire her fine creation. I've never looked better immediately before stepping into the shower. For that I pay $35.00 including her tip.
The hygenist on the other hand starts by giving me shit for not flossing. Then she proceeds to abuse my gums. When the torture is all said and done? No hand mirror in sight. WTF? Why can't I see your creation? For that I pay $110.00 without a tip.
When I get out to my car I take a gander at my teeth expecting to see pearly whites. WTF? Have you ever wiped one spot on a dirty wall? Looks like shit doesn't it? Yeah, so do teeth if you only clean 1/4 inch from the gumline. There's still a lot of fucking tooth that never got cleaned.
Now I understand that I smoke, and drink coffee and copious amounts of cola. But the last hygenist had no problem getting my teeth beautiful.
This is the hygenist's work.
Do you see how white each tooth is by the gumline? Doesn't the rest of the tooth look fucking lovely?
Now I'm not one of these women that will sit and bawl over a bad haircut. My attitude is hey that shit grows everyday and in six weeks I'll be able to get it fixed right back up.
A bad dental cleaning? Now that had me ready to spend the rest of the weekend bawling. You don't get to have that done every six weeks. That's a 9 month wait until you can get that shit fixed up. At least before I went to the dentist my teeth were uniformly stained.
Did I sit down an bawl though? Fuck no, I got out the baking soda and a washcloth.
This is what I did with a paste of baking soda and water on a cloth and a little bit of fucking effort.
I am quite the fucking handy woman aren't I? Now I don't have to spend the next 9 months smiling with my lips closed.
I will be calling the dentist office on Monday and rescheduling my next appointment. With the previous hygenist please and thank you. I'll bring my own hand mirror.
