EVER EVER EVER EVER AGAIN. As you all may know my nails are my #1. So Sunday I get off work and I wanted to go get a fill (3 weeks over due) my nails salon that I go to on the regular was closed.
So I decided to get a fill at this location. Never again will I ever trust someone else with my nails. (I’ll post pics in the comments) first of all I chose this place because it had 4.5 stars on
google. And was “top rated” and “lgbt friendly” so I decided it was good to go. NOT. I walk in, tell them I need a fill and a replacement blah blah blah. Then, I pick out my gel polishes, the guy
then tells me that these are just regular polishes and the matching gels are in the back. And he needed to go get them ( his name was Andy) So I said that’s fine and I sit back down in the
waiting room. I sat there for 15-20min, while 2 nail techs with open stations are sitting there gossiping about god knows what. Mind you I’m the only one in the waiting room waiting to get my
nails done, aside from the mother and little girl who was waiting on her daughter to finish with the nail tech she was sitting with. After waiting a while, I’m finally asked to sit at a station
with this older gentleman, his name is Tom. So he’s removing the pre existing gel polish off my nails and he fucking cuts my thumb. (Pic inserted in comments) so I’m sitting there bleeding and he
blames me for it and says I moved. Also he to CLEAN THE BLOOD OF MY NAIL HE USED PURE FUCKING ACETONE WHICH BURNED SO BAD!!!! so after this I’m a little jumpy as he’s continuing to drill the rest
of the old gel off. So he’s finally done and he sees that some of my acrylic is lifting so he takes these tweezers and starts ripping it off my nails. (If you’ve ever had acrylics, him ripping at
the lifted nail is equivalent to stubbing your acrylic backwards on your nail which fucking hurts) so he’s ripping apart my nails bit by bit, and now he’s onto replacing the nail that I broke. So
the entire nail came off, so he had to put a new tip on it. He glued the tip on, and instead of cutting the plastic tip into the stiletto shape, he decides that he’s going to just add the
And file it later which is stupid (waste of acrylic) anyways, he slaps on a shit ton of acrylic and it’s not even dry mind you and he pulls out these scissors and cuts it into the stiletto shape, almost cuts my finger off, he also made the shape way too narrow towards my finger so it was all jacked up and he decided to add more acrylic to fix the jacked up nail he just did. While he’s trying to fix this he’s being very rough with my hands squeezing my fingers super tight, huffing and puffing and getting an attitude because he fucked up my nail. And said it’s my fault that my hands are weird and I keep moving. And then at the end charges me 50$ for my nails. It was a fill and a replacement. At my salon a fill is 24$ a replacement is 3$ and gel polish is 5$ so tell me why it was 50$ here. Idk whatever. Worst experience EVER. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!
Consider the following as it pertains to personal preferences of deer hunting and efforts being made to improve the current situations that are being discussed on these sites. Also consider that when dealing with Hot topics that it is somewhat natural to try and swing things to an extreme. Compromise is not extreme, it is a balance from those making real efforts to improve and coexist. When you swing extreme left or right their is always turmoil. I will tell you up front that I support Hunting which includes but not limited to; hound hunting, still hunting and Sunday Hunting. These are my comments and my suggestions and nobody else influenced them. *Best Solar Battery
Controlling Hounds - It wasn't that long ago that houndsman had no means to track hounds which made it extremely difficult to locate and retrieve, With the introduction of telemetry greatly increased the handlers ability to catch up but was not easily mastered. More recently the GPS system provided a huge improvement in locating and pin pointing the hound and in my opinion was instrumental in the decision to create the RTR law. The latest step in technology was the GPS coupled with improved tracking ability and training features and anybody that has one will tell you that if used correctly will be invaluable. My point is that hound owners are investing in technology to improve our ability to limit the presence of hounds in unwanted places whether it is roadways or places that they do not have permission to be. These systems are very expensive but should be viewed as one step that hound owners are taking to limit the ground time on unwanted property. Houndsman are upgrading their system everyday and I feel it wont be long before 90 percent will be using the upgraded technology.
Landowners and RTR - Landowners have the right to allow or disallow hunting. A trespasser is someone that does not have permission or the legal right to be there. In my opinion the spirit of the RTR was to limit the presence of hounds on property where they are not wanted. Removing it would only increase the amount of time that a hound will spend on your property and the number of hounds that may be there. Handlers that are turning out and trying to push dogs onto your property are exercising poor judgement and if he comes onto your property to drive dogs he is trespassing. To suggest that a handler be fined for each occurrence that a dog trails up or runs a deer onto a landowners property with the ultimate recourse being the removal of the clubs permit is not at all realistic and has multiple pitfalls. There are many landowners that depend on the lease fees to maintain their farms or land, they grew up with many of these hunters that are their neighbors and friends. While I believe that the fast majority of landowners permit hounds I realize that we must strive for realistic answers that are not too far left or right.

Give the newer GPS technology time to take hold.
Stay off posted property unless you are truly trying to retrieve and if so do it legally.
Landowners that object to hunting with hounds should want to get the hounds off their property as soon as possible. In many cases the handler can even show the GPS screen to them and show them the dog in question.
All hound clubs should be members of the the VHDA and adopt their Code of Ethics AND abide by them. This way we are in a better position to hold clubs accountable for their members actions. Not to mention that it would help with all the individual bickering that goes on in FB and I think we would all agree that doing so has not been productive.
If anyone feels that the current laws are not being enforced then why would anyone think additional laws will be. Support and enforce the game laws on the books. I would support a training season for hounds on deer as long as Fox pens remain open which by the way isn't free. Some may not look at this as a compromise but by doing so would enhance the still hunting season for us all while we would still be sharing the regular gun season and with sharing should come tolerance by the outspoken hunters that prefer season long still hunting.
Practicing Respect and Tolerance will go a long way. Maybe a better term would be Respect to Retrieve.
In closing think before you speak/post, seldom do people come to agreements while arguing.
