Some Phrases are Cross Cultural

About once a week I get a Thai massage, always from the same massage lady because her work has transformed my body for the better. The shop faces the Hilton so the customers are mostly tourists. Few of them take Thai massage, preferring foot massage. The shop also does significant business in manicures and pedicures. Saw one gentleman, obviously short on time, receiving simultaneous mani- and pedicures. Four sets of nails, four ladies at work. After we’d walked past and gotten out of earshot, I asked Tukta how often the shop did that. “What, the sugar daddy?” she replied.

Just to be clear, she was referring to the 4 on 1 service, not making a personal remark about the customer.
