    salon to open today...

    well my latest salon venture is due to open today and most of you are invited. those who are unwelcome will know who they are *two fingers* it's be a challenge to get this particular salon off the ground cos we employed a different set of builders/ tradesmen than before.. this lot were more like






    my thanks goes to those who have helped with advice, encouragement & practical assistance. especiall the member who shall remain nameless who fitted a door blind thingy for us

    we will be serving champagne on the patio in front of the salon & a finger buffet selection will be provided on picnic tables. i do hope you will be able to join us in this happy occasion. i reckon if i can get an otter 3 or 4 salon on the go, that should be enough to keep me in beer

    question is when will this salon start to make a profit?

    Good luck with it Mr and Mrs 'H'. I'd guess it might be a time before you saw a profit on your investment what with the competition. One thing the Sois of LOS seem awash with are salons and launderies. Once you have built up your customer base though you'll have a constant long-term income what with the bizarre need that women seem to have for having ther hair washed daily....For men, hair washing is a last resort to get rid of the insects that won't come out from rubbing the head furiously, but women seem to enjoy it...And don't get me started on shampoo....honestly, don't.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    Good luck in your venture Harry. I don't know any of the circumstances so I can't comment on it's profitability but I hope it's sooner rather than later.

    Apparently not - no one knows where the place is. I am sure this place will be a success......

    I was one of da lucky ones who knew where Harry has his shop on KSR. I suppose the experience is well worth the B50 and 5 minutes per cut.

    Good luck hazz! - it's normal to have to build up your customer base, so don't get too worried if you have a few quiet months to begin with. Here's a good fortune cat for you anyway....

    We're pretty selective who we let into Sarfend these days, drug addicts asylum seekers, crooks and currency traders only I'm afraid.

    I really can't remember the amount of times the wife of a farang man has asked me for comission on the work I do, I just tell erm to fok right off, but they still ask, but I feel sure that the Thai building companies pay the issan whores a percentage to keep everything happy, not that harry is married to a issan whore I might add, I was just going off on tangent about my work and the greedy issan whores who want percentage out of what their husband spends.

    Harry where does your young lady come from?

    Harry is a bit of a nutter but he seems harmless enough.

    if your a thai then it's not your money that we're after. we are appealing to the high rolling farangs & japs of the thong-lo area.
