A Question for Those More Familiar Than I ...

... with nail salons.

When I went into Gainesville for lunch with friends today, I had a few minutes to kill before they arrived, so I walked down the strip mall in which the restaurant is located, looking into the shops.

One of the shops was a nail salon. On the wall was a board listing the prices of various services. Some of the services listed two prices. For example, "manicure, $23" in print and then, hand-written next to it, "men, $25."

Is this kind of open and blatant sex discrimination usual and normal in that particular service industry, or is it some kind of aberration peculiar to that shop?
