Crunch This

I called the gym to renew my membership. I was speaking to what I could only assume was a perky, caffeinated, 30-something with abs that made the skin on her stomach look wrinkly.

"Okay, Hon, well let me just look you up in our system."

"Okay," I put another chocolate cookie in my mouth and chewed. I figure because it's a soft cookie, she can't hear me cheat.

"So did you get married in the past year?"

I choked on my cookie. Is that what is supposed to happen after you join the swanky gym in the swanky part of town for a year? You get married? Was this a guaranteed result that I had somehow missed?

Does this mean I get some sort of refund?

OMG, the chewing the soft cookie didn't count as cheating because she couldn't hear had me laughing so hard, I was crying. That's freaking classic!!

hahaha what a way to get married!

Billy said...

very bizarre question. i hate gyms, maybe that's why?

Walter said...

I'll venture a guess, maybe they had some sort of special where you could get a discount if you get your spouse to sign up. I think your reply to her should have been, "Married 3 times, divorced twice. How did you know?"

Do they offer a money back guarentee if you get divourced?

Sarah said...

Princess- Haha! I probably wouldn't need the gym if I could put the cookies down!

Pink Jellybelly- I know, right?

Billy- I like gyms, I think the politics of them are so funny.

Walter- I *think* she was checking to see if my name had changed in the last year. I just wish she could have asked me that instead. :)

Phil- I'll call back and ask her. Heheh :)

How bizzarre... not really their business I suspect.

Anyway, just wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas :)

oh god, imagine if you got married to someone from the gym though? How crap. Better to meet someone at the ice-cream parlor - how much more fun would THAT be? :D

How odd, maybe they'd got your surname wrong, or she confused you for someone else?

If all else fails, ignore the old prune, and vow never to succumb to the temptation of sunbeds.

Happy Christmas!
