Guess where I am right now? I’m actually standing next to my wax pot, spatula at the ready. Where the heck else would I be? Well, if the news/Twitter/Facebook are to be believed, I should be at home, under the duvet having a ‘snow day’. Seriously.
The thing is, I happen to love my job and am so grateful that I can go to do something I enjoy every day. I also have an obligation to my clients to be there at their allotted time spot. I can’t stand the thought of letting customers down. Without them, I would have no business, put simply.
