The original conversation, which has had the names blurred out in the screenshot below, started with a woman, Sarah*, requesting prices for spray tanning services.
“Hey girl! I noticed you didn’t have a price list on your insta and was wondering how much for the 1 hr express spray tan?,” she said.
Responding to her message, the company representative offered the standard rate, adding that they'd "just had a look at (the woman's) Instagram and were wondering what size (she) was".
