Petty People Make Me Sigh
I believe I have mentioned the awesome that is my new workout love… MMA Fight Training.
I am very happy with the gym – http://femalefightersmma.com/.
The coaching / owner and his wife are great people. The girls in the classes are all great and supportive. The training is tough, but not crazy-town. I am enjoying it immensely.
But some people, they cannot be happy when other people are enjoying something.
So on Tuesday, a friend of mine who had bought the same groupon I did came to the class for the first time. And she brought a friend of hers along.
The “friend of hers” trains Jiu Jitsu at a facility about 15 mins further down the highway than where I am going.
When I saw her, I thought it was odd, as she’s pretty dedicated to that school of hers.
By the end of the class, I realized, that she was there to spy on the new place. What’s up with that?
So she came to one class, then went on the groupon site and trashed it in the review section.
Ugh – people! Why do they feel the need to do this?
Her school and this one are totally different.
This one is a) all female, b) MMA, not just Jiu Jitsu, and C) in a different geographic location, pulling a different type of student.
The coach makes no claims to being a super kung fu master. This is “Beginner up to intermediate” training. Not “you’ll be a bad-ass black belt in a year” stuff.
But this chick, yeah, I could have figured her for it… and whatever… what is it the hip kids say today? “Haters gonna hate”…
It makes me a little sad, though, that the other lady, who is supposed to be my friend, decided to go along with it. Her husband trains at the same school… and when she bought the Groupon, he convinced her to start taking classes with him instead, which, hey, no skin off my nose… but to then decide that you need to come up and see what other people are doing and trash it because it’s not what you are doing? Not cool.
Anyway – it’s not like the negative review in the SEA of positive ones is really that big a deal… and this lady is not like my BESTIE or anything.
It’s just minorly annoying that people feel the need to be so petty when there’s NO NEED.
THIS NEW THING IS NOT HURTING YOUR THING IN ANY WAY!
