I was afraid of getting a pedicure, till someone put it to me that they don't care if you are male or female. They have a business and just want your money. So I went and a very old man was getting his toes trimmed, and just before it was time for her to paint my nails a woman walks in and sits RIGHT next to me. I thought I was about to run right out of there, but I soon realized if it bothered her or not nothing was said. I started small talk with her. I found out that she was a school teacher, and goes there on a regular basis. When I got home my wife swore up and down that those were not my real toe nails. They did that good of a job. Ok so all I am saying is that you are your worst enemy. I am no way ready to wear heels in public. Understand I wear 5 to 6 inch heels, and there is no way someone would not notice.
