FUNNY FRIDAY:  Dealing with a Negative Person

This is a funny story that makes an excellent point about life!

Dealing with a Negative Person

~ Source:  The Internet

Next Time You Deal With a Negative Person Who Tries to Make Your Life Miserable, Think of This Story:

A New York woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled prior to a trip to Rome with her best friend.  She mentioned the trip to her hairdresser.

Hairdresser:  ”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?”

Client:  We’re taking Continental, we got a great rate!”

Hairdresser:  ”Continental?!” exclaimed the hairdresser.  ”That’s a terrible airline! Their planes are old, their flight attendants are mean, and they’re always late!”

“So, where are you staying in Rome?”

Client:  ”We’ll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome’s left bank called ‘Teste.’”

Hairdresser:  ”Don’t go any further.  I know that place.  Everybody thinks it’s going to 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, what are you doing when you get there?”

Client:  ”We’re going to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope.”

Hairdresser (laughing):  ”That’s rich; you and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant.  Boy, good luck on this trip of yours.  You’re going to need it.”

A month later, the woman again comes in for a hairdo and the hairdresser inquires about her trip to Rome.

Client:  ”It was wonderful.  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 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!”

Hairdresser (muttering):  ”Well, that’s all well and good, but I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”

Client:  ”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.”

Hairdresser: “Oh, really.  What’d he say?”

Client:  ”He said, ‘Where’d you get that crappy hairdo?’”

Lesson:  Don’t let a negative person get you down.  If you do, you may be missing a beautiful and wonderful life experience.
