Update on yesterday’s story about the woman who was turned away from a massage at Tu Moda Spa and Salon because she had stage 4 cancer:
As far as I’m concerned, all is forgiven. I would’ve liked to see them apologize on their Facebook page, but the only person who was shafted here says it’s all good, so to Turtleboy it’s all good. The owner probably isn’t actively involved in the day to day activities of his employees. That’s why he has managers. They fucked up, and how he handles this is his own business. All I know is, if I’m in the market for a rub, I’m probably going elsewhere. Just sayin.
And once again, this is the power of the Turtleboy Sports Revolution. This lady’s story would’ve been swept under the rug. The masseuse would’ve continued to live in 1930’s medical ignorance. Now we can assume he’s read his employees the riot act and they all learned something here. And we’re proud to have played a part in this, because learning is fun.
It does kind of twist our shell that it took a blog to get them to do the right thing. Plus, it doesn’t sound like the employees have had it explained to them that a koodies shot is not required when coming in contact with someone who has cancer:
But like I said, if Karrie is cool with it then so are we. Turtleboy is way more into revenge and 100% victory. But we understand that she probably doesn’t have the energy to hold grudges. Life is too short.
Anyway, Tu Moda’s Facebook page is now quite the site to behold. It’s a testament to why you should probably call Turtleboy back if he calls you up and asks for a comment. I mean, you can pretend like what we write doesn’t matter, but as you can see you’re clearly wrong if you continue to believe that. But there was one lady defending their honor on our Facebook page:
Alright before we go any further, what the hell is this?
Yup, that’s the person I’m taking medical advice from. For sure.
Don’t even know where to start. First of all, how do you target a business in a “malic” way?
Because I know I often like to take medical advice from people who can’t spell. Speaking of, Debbie Downer seems to be an expert in oncology massage. We had no idea what “lympadema” was so we Googled it:
Yup, just an expert pretending to use words in context that she saw on an episode of Chicago Med. And she would know a lot about massaging cancer patients from her extensive training as a hypnotist:
Yup, she DEFINITELY knows what she’s talking about. Definitely.
Plus, it appears as if this woman doesn’t have to worry about lymph nodes, which is probably why her NP gave her a note saying it was all good:
The Debster wasn’t done though….
Except the woman had a note from her nurse practitioner. She was completely safe for a massage. So yea, wrong again Debbie. Oh well, once you lose an argument and look dumb you can always resort to this:
We call this a “sad hominem” attack. It’s what you do when you’re sad after being on the receiving end of an ad hominem attack from turtle riders.
Here’s the thing – real massage therapists always seemed to disagree with the hypnotist:
As do cancer survivors
On a positive note, this story really brought out the best in everyone, as many lined up and offered their massage services to this woman:
The bottom line is that we all learned a valuable lesson here. The masseuse learned that she was stupid to believe lung cancer could spread because of a massage. The managers learned that it was dumb to ignore Turtleboy like we don’t matter. The owner learned that he needs to get his employees to get their shit together. Karrie Nason learned that turtle riders will jump at the opportunity to help someone in need. And Debbie Downer realized that it is unwise to poke the turtle.
