Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off!
I am pissed off!!Let me tell you why! Remember I joined Pilates class in our office clubhouse during lunch time? I am happily doing Pilates , partly because I like doing stretches and partly because the teacher is totally absolutely motivating! More about my pilates teacher later. [Yeah I am keeping the best for last, you will know soon why J]So I got changed and rushed to the studio and see the studio is locked down! My teacher and few other colleagues were waiting in front of the studio. Apparently the cleaner misplaced the key, the teacher told us that the lady was looking for the keys. Meantime I saw the cleaner lady coming down few times and frantically looking for the keys everywhere. After 5 minuets she said , if we mind using the next room, which did not have mirrors. We said, sure why not!
Then enters the Lady Violent, let’s call her Mrs.V. She come down and ask us what is going on, teacher briefs what’s happening and suddenly she started fuming. “Why why why? Tell me your boss number? Let me call and complain right now. You people are damn careless. We paid soo much for the lass you see Blah blah #!%!” The poor lady who was new was almost in verge of tears..
I looked around and most of them were as shocked as me. We tried to calm Mrs.V.”Calm down,. It was an honest mistake. let’s use next room”. She started yelling at us as well!”Mistake? What the hell..these people must be taught a lesson “.Finally the teacher asked the cleaner to go upstairs and tried to calm the violent lady! She kept muttering for next 10 minutes.
Seriously do you have to be this harsh to a person just because we missed 5 minutes of a class? Don’t we all make mistakes? Was our 100 dollars worth a poor cleaners job?
