Touche :-)

Something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade. So remember this the next time someone who knows nothing and cares less makes your life miserable...

A New York woman was at her hairdresser's on Park Avenue getting her hair styled prior to a trip to Rome with her boyfriend. She mentioned the trip
to the hairdresser, who responded, "Rome?" Why would anyone want to go there?

It's crowded, dirty and full of Italians. You're crazy to go to Rome.

"So, how are you getting there?" "We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"

Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser. "That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late.

"So, where are you staying in Rome?" "We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome's left bank called Teste..."

"Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks its gonna be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump, the worst hotel in the city! The rooms are small, the service is surly and they're overpriced.

So, whatcha doing when you get there?" "We're going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope."

"That's rich," laughed the hairdresser."You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."

A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo.

The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.

"It was wonderful," explained the woman, "not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked and they bumped
us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel, it was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"

Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."

"Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained that the Pope likes to meet
some of the visitors and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me.Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."

"Oh, really...What'd he say?"

He said, "Where did you get that shitty hairdo?"

Too funny!

Along the same lines...
I was having my nails done last week, and a woman was having her hair highlighted a few feet away. While they were timing the bleach, she looked around at the flags on the tables, and the flower arrangement with several flags in it and said "I am SO sick of seeing American flags everywhere!" The stylist (also the owner, and Korean) looked at her and said "what did you just say?"...she repeated herself, and added "if I see another car with a big flag on it, I'm gonna puke!".

The owner calmy undid the womans smock, and told her to get out and never come back! I almost applauded, but my hands were busy :laughing2

This woman walked out of the shop with foil all over her head, and the bleach was still in her hair!

I'd love to see how her hair looks! :afrorainb:

I bet she never makes a stupid remark like that again!

Even if you're a little sick of insincere patriotism (people who are doing it to go along with a crowd), why on earth would anyone complain about seeing their own country's flag? And why would you say it to someone who has left their native land to live in your country? Word!

I loved your joke Helen. Sometimes I have to remind myself about the things that really matter, and count my blessings. Luckily I don't let the squabbles and such on the internet get to me. It really doesn't matter to me what some cyber stranger who has no idea who I really am, thinks of me. I have so much to be thankful for in my life that the petty stuff doesn't make a dent. Your post reminded me to find the silver lining in every cloud. thanks

Diane, that is the best story I've heard in forever. Shame on that woman for being so negative, not to mention unpatriotic! Sounds like the owner of the salon is a wonderful person.

Yeah, I found it interesting that this native born American woman made such comments, and that the Korean woman was so offended that she kicked her out!
I loved it.

That was so funny! I can't believe that anyone would say such a thing. Her hair must have turned out awful! Ha ha ha...I guess thats what she gets for saying something like that.
