PEDICURE DANGERS - NEVER ALLOW THE METAL SCRAPER TO BE USED

I went to get a pedicure the other day and in flip flops - went to an Asian salon as I was in a hurry and got a spray tan for a weekend event we had coming up.  I wasn't paying attention, I'm 53, I have had so many pedicures - never an issue, ever!  I was relaxing, watching the depressing news and checking my phone when I felt so much pain in my foot area, I said "OUCH" and withdrew my foot, I was bleeding and bleeding badly.  There was nothing to grab to stop the bleeding, the pedicurist seemed unable to understand what had just happened, I said, I'm cut, I'm bleeding, you cut me!  She said, sorry sorry and tried to rinse off the stream of blood trickling from my foot into the pedicure bowl off.  I said, give me a cloth, a towel, I have to stop the bleeding!  I grabbed the towel with the other foot covered in slimey callus remover and put pressure on the wound.  The lady next to me seemed to get excited, moving down a chair to be closer to the "action". She proclaimed she was a nurse and that accidents happen and I would be just fine.  Of course, I could not contain my pain and thoughts of what an idiot, I'm bleeding, a portion of my heel has been chunked out with an illegal instrument, I don't know if it has been sanitized.  There is blood everywhere and nobody knows what to do.  There is no first aid kit, they try to give me a mosquito size band aid.  They say sorry.  Then, they decide I should pay for my service.  I agreed to present a record of myself there.  However, I will be quick to challenge it with my bank.  Yes, of course, I went to the doctor for wound treatment, antibiotics and healing cream.  I had to have a tetanus shot, which you need every 10 years, regardless if you have anything wrong.  I've been unable to walk since.  They didn't clean up the blood with disinfectant either, they used a dry cloth.  I was so shocked.  I really can't believe this happened.  So I'm passing this 2nd public service announcement out tonight.

PLEASE NEVER LET ANYONE USE A METAL CHEESE GRATER LIKE INSTRUMENT ON YOU FOR ANY REASON.
