After reading the article about that poor hairstylist in Bound Brook, I don't feel sorry for her at all. Being in the industry myself, I know summer is the worst time to keep a full appointment book going. 6 clients on a summer saturday ain't all that bad. I think she is very clever in tricking people to fill her book.
Three things I would like to say...
1- she has money for cigarettes.
2- she must take a lot of food from the food bank.
3- how can I get an article done about me so that people can help me too?
