Dear friends, today I will tell you about an experience that has affected my sensitivity. I say that in the space of 14 years, I have only taken a holiday that can be considered decent. Since I am very attentive to the clientele, before taking a week’s holiday, I set up the call transfer on my mobile phone so that I could always be available anyway. I got a good number of calls and I always answered everyone.
On the penultimate day I note a call on my cell phone from a number I don’t know, so I assume it’s a phone call from a customer or allegedly such. I recall this number and a woman who did not speak in Italian answers me. With great difficulty this woman asks me what I want to sell. I told him that I don’t want to sell anything and that I just called back because I got a call from that number. The woman then passes me a guy who speaks my language, I tell him who I am. He asks me for a price, after I tell him the price he answers me that I was earning an X digit (very high figure said by him at random looking on the internet), adds that we do a nice AMMUCCHINO and then without giving me a chance to reply closes me the phone in the face.
I remain like a fool with my cell phone in my hand and a hint of tears wetting my eyelids. The problem is that unfortunately you do not realize the expenses that a shopkeeper has and you do not realize how little you earn. People should understand that no one puts their earnings on the internet and so looking at a little page is almost always a reliable source of information. I’ve always been very attached to work, I’ve gone to work that I was in pieces, I’ve always paid all my taxes and when I take a week off Do I have to be insulted like that?
Because that’s a problem
I know it’s a hoax, but it’s hurt my sensibility a lot, tell me if I’m overdone. I understand that it is part of the game to take insults, I have always worked like a mule and I have always taken insults but now I am tired. Tired of insults, tired of preconceptions and stereotypes, tired of trudging every day. Enough of this war between the poor!
Let me know if I’m too much in the comments or if I have at least a shred of reason.
