swimming with the fishes

Earlier today, my guy and I went to the gym and had a very pleasant surprise.  See, a few years back, when he asked what I wanted for Christmas, I told him a year's membership at the gym.  It was there that I lost the weight from two year ago and there that helps me keep it off.  So I asked the following year for a renewal.  Which he gave me, cuz he loves me and is a swell guy.  (wink)

So today, when we got there, we expected that it would be renewal time.  And when I asked if the girl could check to see if my account is current (cuz I couldn't remember if it was up in December or if it was the end of this month), she said, "yup, til Dec 21, 2008".  I smiled, thanks, I called over my shoulder as I pulled my guy away from the desk and down the hall.  But, he protests, I didn't do it!

Last fall, I had complained about one of the women that works there and how she treated me on several occasions, which I was overlooking for a long time (cuz I hate confrontation); but when she diss'ed my guy and all, I knew enough was enough.  And I took my case to the business manager, and complained.  I pointed out that he pays for my membership every year and doesn't deserve to be mistreated in such a manner.  That he pays each time he goes, and that should be more than enough to ward off this woman's snide comments and rudeness.  And the business manager agreed with me.

I think they gave me a free year.  And I'm not gonna complain.  I was wondering why I never got the renewal notice.  And now, I know (i think).

merry christmas to me!
