This is something to think about when negative
people are doing their best to rain on your parade.
So 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 having 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 flying Emirates," was the reply. "It was really cheap!"
"Emirates?" 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
"Don't go! any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks its something
special and exclusive, but it's really a dump."
"We're going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get 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. Good luck on this
crappy trip of yours. You're going to need it."
A month later, the woman 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 Emirate'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 was
great! They'd just finished a $50 million refurbishment, and now it's a
jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they
apologised 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: "Who f**ked up your hair?"
