To negative people everywhere & with thanks to fellow Fodorites

Here's 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 about 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'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
underbooked and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old flight attendant 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 had a mix-up about
our reservations and 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'd you get the crappy hairdo?"

Thanks to all my Fodorite friends who take the time to share their real experiences...

This should be required reading for those few folks who prowl this bulletin board, posting nasty comments and berating others for asking "dumb" questions!
