A TANNING salon worker has revealed the three most annoying things that clients do when they come into her salon.
Connie Jemmott, from Texas USA, said that some of the clients she works with are so brazen, with one even taking the woman's phone to follow herself on Instagram.
Taking to her TikTok account, Connie said that she now feels too awkward to unfollow the client.
Posting under the domain @queenjemmott, Connie said that she was making small talk with the client, who said she was getting the spray tan for a photoshoot.
"So my client comes in, and she tells me she is getting ready for a photoshoot andI'm like 'oh cool, wonderful' making small talk and I ask 'is it local or do you have to travel' and she said actually it's for my brand, it's for my company," said Connie.
"I said 'I didn't know that you had a company, that's so awesome' whatever. She's like 'ya you should check it out, do you have Instagram?' and I was like 'ya I have Instagram' because what am I gonna do, lie to her?" she added.

The client then proceeded to take Connie's phone, which she thought was just to show her the business profile, but actually, she was looking for follows.
"I said what is the business name and she said 'here I'll type it in because It's a little bit hard.' OK. My dumb self picks up my phone and unlocks it, giving her my phone with Instagram pulled up so she can type in her name" said Connie.
Adding: "Tell me why she follows herself. Obviously logged into my account because it's my phone. She follows herself. Immediately. Like upon putting the name in, she clicks follow and she hands it back to me."

The salon worker said that she now feels really awkward about unfollowing the client but does not want her on Instagram.
"Now it's awkward because I can't even be like 'Oh I just forgot to follow you.' No. I can't even unfollow now because she is gonna notice, and she is gonna say something. It will be awkward" said Connie.
Adding: "That was so rude."
The post has been viewed over 68k times and TikTok viewers have been quick to comment.
"It’s wrong….but I’m impressed at that power move lol" commented one person.
Another added: "Next time use the yeah I have an IG but I haven’t logged in to my account in forever."
"Gotta Hit 'em with 'I don’t keep social media on my phone so I stay focused'" commented a third.
Another thing Connie says she hates it when people bring their kids into the salon.
Under a post titled "I don’t make them clean… but I also don’t have any toys" Connie shows off a spray bottle of water and a roll of paper towel as the only thing she has for kids to play with.
"When my client brings their kids in and asks if we have any toys for them to play with," said Connie.
Speaking of parents, another thing that gets on Connies' nerves is when parents try and book their teenagers in for sunbeds.
In a third postConnie reenacts a situation with a mum who went irate when her 17-year-old daughter was not allowed to use the sunbeds.
Connie explained to the mum "It is because she is 17 and you need to be 18 and older to use a UV bed in Texas."
The mum then began to tamper with her daughter's form to make her out to be 18 but Connie explained she had a copy of the teenagers' ID.
"Thankfully we don't just go off those waivers, I also have a copy of her ID, where it says she is under 18 so unfortunately she cannot use the beds, but she can spray tan."
