Yesterday, I went to the haircut, and while there, we talked with my hairdresser about me going to the office, about mask-wearing, and all this nowadays small talk 🙂 And she told me about a client she had a couple of days before. All the time in her chair, he was talking trash about Nancy Pelosi and how hypocritical she is, not wearing a mask while doing a haircut… all that nor wearing a mask himself!
My hairdresser said: I told him, yes, I agree; it is very disrespectful not to wear a mask when you have a haircut. You are putting another person in danger. But, my hairdresser concluded, he didn’t get the message!
I asked her, could she refuse him a service per Governor Pritzker order? And she said: no, we can’t reject any client these days!
I feel very sorry for her because she is a person here who puts her life in danger. And I can’t wrap my head around such behavior!
My name is Henrietta (Hettie) Dombrovskaya. I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russian (actually, back then – Leningrad, USSR) in 1963, and immigrated to the United States in 1996.
I love Saint Petersburg, the city I was born and raised in, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Similarly (but differently) I love Chicago, and can’t imagine myself moving somewhere else in the observable future.
I have three children, Igor, Vlad and Anna, all adults living on their own, and one (so far) granddaughter Nadia. I also believe that my children are the best thing that happened in my life.
As for my professional life, I am working in the field of Information Technologies. When I was twenty, I’ve declared that the databases are the coolest thing invented and that I want to do them for the rest of my life. Thirty plus years later, I still believe it’s true, and still, believe that the databases are the best. These two statements together imply that I think a person can have it all, and indeed, I think so! Keep reading my journals to find out how I did it.

That’s infuriating. There are laws in place here that would allow a hairdresser/stylist to not even let him into the building if he wasn’t wearing a mask. It sounds harsh, but it also takes the onus off of the hairdresser/stylist. It can be hard with so many people unwilling to wear masks and putting people at risk. I feel for her for the risks being taken cutting people’s hair when they don’t have a mask.

I am very sorry for her! She is very young, but she is so mature and reasonable, and building her future, attending college at night and everything. She knows better than going to parties and such. When I reacted with dismay she said: I cleaned everything after he left! And the chair! And I told her that I do not worry about me sitting in this chair but about her.
