What to say!

I am just sitting here, my mind blank of what to write, there are lots of things I could post, but I am just not in the right mood. I could talk about the things I have done since my last post, but that's not that exciting. I didn't make this blog so I could just talk about what I did lately. Like anyone cares where I went last week, unless it was incredibly exciting and funny. Well.... maybe I will tell you about one of my favorite experiences at work.....

Lindsey: Hi, can I help you with anything?

Woman: Yes, we were just wondering if there is anything we can give our dog to make him stop scratching after he has a bath. I don't think it's fleas though. Everyone is telling me it is fleas but my dog does not have fleas. Do you have anything that will make him stop scratching?

Lindsey: It is only after a bath he is scratching?

Woman: Yes, only after a bath. Then the nexy day he is not scratching any more.

Lindsey: Well, what kind of shampoo do you use?

Woman: Baby shampoo, thats the best. People have told me thats the best.

Lindsey: It is actually not that great for dog's skin.

Woman: But people have always told me baby shampoo is the best.

Lindsey: It is the best HUMAN shampoo to use on a dog if you had nothing else and your dog really needs a bath. It sounds like your dog has sensitive skin. You might get away with using it on a dog that does not have sensitive skin, but human's skin has a different pH than a dog's skin pH, so shampoos formulated for human's skin are harsh on dog's skin.

Woman: Oh no, our baby is human, his skin is the same. Can't you just give me something that will stop his scratching after his bath. He only scratches after a bath.

Lindsey: Not really. He is scratching after a bath because his skin is irritated from the shampoo. We have some Aloe & Oatmeal shampoo that would be great for his skin if you would like to try that.

Woman: Oh no, we have tried dog shampoo and it didn't work.

Lindsey: Well your dog probably have sensitive skin and would need a shampoo that is gentle. Do you remember what kind of dog shampoo that was?

Deaf Woman: No. There must be something I could give him to stop him from scratching after his bath.

Lindsey: All we have for dry skin is Omega fatty acid supplements, but his skin is only dry after a bath. The only this I can reccomend to you is a gentle shampoo made for dog's skin.

Deaf and Blind Woman(that would be the only way it was logical to say this): Well, I am just going to keep using baby shampoo, because he only scratches after his bath.

Lindsey: (Silence.... slowly creeps into the back, away from clients)
