We in the 'service industry' get to see it all. If there is a lifestyle, fad , or God help us fetish out there, we are invited in to witness it.
Sometimes, despite our best efforts to focus on the job at hand, we are placed in awkward situations.
Today i was invited to an ex-nazi cross dressers home.......i was at a complete loss of words, which is fairly critical for me

Assumably, I am not alone here ???????

I find that being at a loss for words is much better than commenting at all. Just make reference to the fact that you are charging by the hour or that you would be in violation of your license or professional ethics to comment on personal preferences.

Advise well taken ,
I am mostly such, until an 'in-your-face' experience disturbs my blissful ignorance.

Seeing the affluent to the effluent along with all the trimmings in the same day is condusive to cultural perspective

If you guys keep running into customers like this, I'm going to think you're working here in CA. Do either of you have a Hollywood or San Francisco city license?
Sounds like some of the nuts fell off the CAke
