I'm not going to your office telling you how to practice law. It may be shoe shining, but you're paying me, so that makes me a professional, treat me like one. I can't help it, I find this insulting.
We need you!
Just think, would you say the same thing to your waiter, barber or dry cleaner? Also, please don't tell me about the shoe shiner who only charged you 10 cents, did the best shine ever, was always happy, put four kids through college on his shoeshine money and bought a big house in the suburbs and finally retired into the country club. This fictional character only serves to make you feel better and for me to feel worse. This is especially a no-no if you have a female shoe shiner.
I shouldn't have to say this, really, but suggesting you'd be happier if your shoe shiner was dressed like a stripper is just going to make everyone uncomfortable. Believe it or not, your shiner probably knows how much money she could make as a stripper, and is choosing instead to keep her clothes on and perform a real craft.
Why don't you have girls in bikinis shining? Maybe I don't like to exploit people, and this job is humbling enough. Welcome to the 21st century, sir, and while you're at it, no, I'm not Oliver Twist. If you wore your shoes every single day last winter and they're covered in salt and cracks and holes, don't be surprised when I tell you to dump 'em in the trash can.
Some things can't be saved, and it's on you to provide regular care to your shoes. If you have sore feet, want a special polish, or cherish your white stitching, please tell me first, before I do something we'll both regret. That way I can hustle from the gate and cut any corners that I can. I hate having my masterpiece cut short because you didn't tell me you only had two minutes for a shine.

I totally understand why the author wrote this book and commend her for it. It was a sad, tough life and a somewhat interesting story. I know it was a tribute to her siblings and she pulled that off pretty well. With that being said, who in the heck proof read or edited this book?
Bolivia's masked shoeshine boys battle discrimination
It was so poorly written, and grammatically incorrect. It included misplaced punctuation marks or none at all, capitalization where it wasn't needed and misspelled words. I had to read some sentences over and over in or I totally understand why the author wrote this book and commend her for it. I had to read some sentences over and over in order to make sense of them. I couldn't believe how poorly written it was considering the price of this book.
If more care and observation were taken in these matters I would have given it a four star rating. Like I said, it wasn't a bad story and a lovely tribute. These things were just too hard to overlook. Jeanine Walsh palinkas rated it it was amazing Oct 03, Colleen rated it it was ok Mar 01,
