Surprise Motivation

Saturday, September 04, 2010

In my rush to get to the fitness center, I forgot the barcoded tag I needed. You'd think that after seeing me nearly every day at the same times, they'd just wave me in. Nope. They've gotta look me up in the computer, see that my account is active, and compare the picture on file to me.

The guy manning the front desk asked my last name. I spelled it for him, since it's not a common name, but sounds like one.
Clickety-clickety clickety.

"First name?" I spelled that for him as well. You wouldn't believe what some people hear when I say "Paul". "Ball?" "No, Paul, P-A-U-L".
Clickety-clickety clickety.

Clickety-clickety clickety.

"I'm not seeing you here."
Clickety-clickety clickety.

He looks up.
"Did you used to have a beard and weigh a lot more?"
"Uh, yeah, 42 pounds since I joined in April."

"Wow, good job! You look completely different!"
