    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

    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 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 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’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!” exclaimed 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 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, becau se 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 shitty haircut.


    I think they mean Trieste. Hotel Teste has an entirely different connotation.
