Pedicures are kind of offensive to me

There's a mani-pedi place around the corner from my apartment that I walk by a lot, and whenever I do it bothers me a little.  I guess partly to blame is the fact that the seats are right next to the window on a busy street.  I always see a women perched up high in a lounge chair either using her cell phone or typing on a laptop, while another women is crouched on the ground in front of her working on her feet.  All I can think of every time I see this is some medieval queen sitting in her throne while her slaves huddle below attending to her beck and call.

I think this situation would irritate me a lot less if either A: the women getting the pedicure wasn't doing something else and acknowledged the fact that another human being was touching her feet; or B: if the pedicurist was sitting in a chair the same height as the pedicuree (that's not a word, but it should be).  I can't be the only one who feels this way, right?
