Negative People

*not written by me but received in email

imageThis is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade.  Remember this story the next time someone who knows nothing and cares less, tries to make your life miserable.

A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:

“Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”

“We’re taking SAA” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”

“SAA?” 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 Tiber River called Teste.”

“Don’t go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s 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 are 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 are 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 SAA’s brand new Airbus planes, but it was over-booked 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 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 over-booked, 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, kissed his ring and he spoke a few words to me.”

“Oh, really! What’d he say?”

“The Pope said: “Where’d you get that cack hairdo?

  1. Soo cool….its on us and a choice we need to make everyday to either have postivity rain on us, or allow the lightening of negativity spoil all that rain…. 🙂

  2. OH, this is so great. You had me, hook, line and sinker till the very end. Crack hairdo!! LMAO!!! My first thought was my beautician kisses my ass. That’s what I pay her muchooo dough for!! E’GAWDS!! This was hilarious.

  3. LOL about Maddie. You didn’t think I was making her up did you?? I am her mother! Does that make me a cat?? Or does it make her a person?? LMAO!

  4. LMAO now I AM confuzzed hmmm how’s your meeow? You got claws? wait don’t answer am scared… either way you are both cute as cathumans – did you ever see the show Thundercats?

    For the record I still think it is odd that Maddie kisses boys on the lips – just plain wrong!

  5. Her favorite thing is to…are you ready??? To lick up my nose!!!!!!! I kid you not. When she was a small kitten it wasn’t so bad but it hurts now.

  6. Seriously, when she was very young, she only had me as her mother. Her mother left her in my son’s back yard and her eyes were barely open. She only weighed 12 ounces. When I’d feed her her bottle, she would kind of “knead” my face as I fed her. When she got older and was off the bottle, she’d lick my nose and still knead my cheeks. Now that she’s older, I’ve kind of “encouraged” her to KNOCK IT OFF cause it hurts already!!!

    She’s not a cookie girl. So, your safe there

  7. Joy – you kick the cat? Jokes she sounds soooo cutes, if I ever get the chance to visit will you allow me to meet her? I am safe I promise! So tell me, do you walk around with a red nose?

    Rhosie, welcome to insanity glad you enjoyed!
