@Floridian Belle:  Yeah her comments were totally stupid.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but you have to be pretty dumb to say that sort of thing at work. She may have lost clients or got a pretty bad complaint against her.

Yes that was extremely rude! I would have been pissed off too. I probably would have said something like “Why do you assume I’m not a lesbian?” Ugh, I understand wanting to make small talk but homophobic comments are not acceptable ANYWHERE, especially in a business environment talking to clients!!!

I would no longer go to that salon.  People are entitled to their opinions, however bigoted they are, but I don’t have to give them my money.

Yuck. That’s rude. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I believe there’s rules and limitations to when and where you should blurt ’em out.

When I was in cosmetology school, our teachers always told us this;
“If it’s about politics, religion, or controversial topics, don’t talk about it with your clients.”

She is entitled to feel that way, but really, people should have more tact when they open their mouths in a public place. And even if she did want to verbally share, she can do it at home with her family or frends (and either risk offending them or sharing their viewpoint) and not in public when her words could hurt and offend someone she doesn’t know. Also, she’s in her place of business… Professional much?

If someone says something racist or homophobic, we need to say something to them.

“Please do not speak like that in my presence. It is homophobic and I am not comfortable with remarks like that. If it happens again I will have to take my business elsewhere.”

Being bothered about it is not enough. We all need to speak up at the time.

That’s really awkward and unprofessional. One of many topics that aren’t small talk for a reason.

But if I’m being honest, I also think its in bad taste to describe her ethnicity.

Shes an asshole, Vietnamese or American.
