A Nail Job

So I used incorrect terminology. Are you saying that is not proper vocabulary? I was not accustomed to such occupational nomenclature. I used the term “nail job” instead of “manicure”. My question was followed by cacophonous laughter. “Typical man” was the verbal response that came after. Well, in all of my journeys and trails, I usually don’t have work done on my nails.

    you've made your point very well here. as long as the person knew what you were talking about, what difference does it make how you said it?
