Is it rude to text or at least look thru your cellphone to see what time it is at a nail salon?

while you're still sitting down to wait for your mani/pedi/wax, not talking on your cellphone while your nails are being done by the tech.

You're using your cellphone silently. Would it still be rude?


You're also not texting at all while the tech is working on your nails.

    I don't think that's rude at all.

    No, you might be there for hours so it's ok to look. Who knows but it really might be important! As long as it doesn't interfere with the job at hand it's fine.

    Sometimes people are less good at sitting still if they are doing something. If this is you, then it's best if you just sit quietly instead of doing something. Ask the tech if what you're interferes with the nail work.

    As long as you chat to the technician now and again too, or at least acknowledge their presence, and always say "Excuse me a moment" before firing up your phone.
