It was not a relaxed morning and I was definitely not enjoying it like the person in the picture below.
Woke up at the second alarm, tired; dragged myself out of the bed, cranky…
When I walked into the laundry room to pack my gym gear, I stepped on a pool of water, yuck! I bent down to investigate and discovered a small stream of water was dripping from a plastic valve at the bottom of the water tank. It looked like the seal probably was broken.
This discovery immediately put me into a foul mood and it reminded me the state of the house: things in this house are falling apart. The dish washer broke last year; the furnace broken down in January; the faucet in the upstair bathroom was broke last weekend; and now the water tank. What is going to be the next?
Nothing much we could do at this time of the morning. We decided to place a small dish beneath the tank to catch the drips and call Ashton as soon as the office is open. Chris, on the other hand, seemed not too upset about this and he joked that at least we knew who to call when things like this happen.
We headed out to the gym around 6:10 am and arrived 15 minutes later: man, we were late!! Swiped our cards, we quickly headed to the changing rooms. However, there was one problem: our pathway was blocked!! A girl was slowly moving in the middle of the hall way with a metal ball in her hands swinging side to side, and her trainer was watching her attentively with prompt feedback. The trainer looked at us briefly and then proceeded her training… Standing there, I started to grow impatience and felt very annoyed. It’s like eternity had passed; finally, she stopped and asked: do you want to pass from this side? I decided to completely ignore her and passed quickly from the exact opposite side!
Embarrassed by my rudeness, Chris felt bad for the instructor. However, I had no regret for what I did: from my point of view, giving a training session in the middle of high traffic area is not a good idea and blocking people’s pathway without apology is even worse.
