1.2L Punto

Reliable gossip:

Pretty looking supercar. Unrelated to the text.

A new supercar comes out. You go out to buy it. You sit down to talk about it and you’re told how amazing the car is and what great service you’ll be getting from the dealer. You’ll get a fancy delivery, 24/7 service hours and replacement Fast&Furious car to match the capabilities of the car you’re going to buy. But they don’t even offer you a cup of coffee. You sign the papers. You don’t even get a coffee. Then comes the downpayment. You’re not even offered a glass of water, let alone a coffee. You take ownership. No fancy delivery. And no coffee. You call for a technical problem. 24/7 becomes ‘let’s talk on Monday, since tomorrow’s Friday.’ So it begins:

  • Monday: “visit Wednesday”.
  • Wednesday, when you get there, problem’s not apparent so you’re being sent off: “No apparent problem, nothing to report”. Still no coffee for you. Problem reappears, you’re told to bring the car next Monday, and that they’ll give you the replacement F&F car.
  • Next Monday: The replacement car is not the furious beast they told you, but more of a rabid snail. And it doesn’t even come with some coffee. You leave pissed off.

On your way back home you ponder the situation and review the things you’ve been told against the way things really were and then it hits you: you just bought a 1.2L Punto for which you paid as if you just bought the whole Fiat range. Twice. And you didn’t even get a coffee.

O iubire greu de gasit

Ajungi acasa tarziu, obosit. Te intampina de la usa si iti sare in brate. Simti ca i-a fost dor de tine, si ca singuratatea cauzata de lipsa ta i-a provocat tristete. Te cheama pe canapea, se aseaza langa tine, te pupa tandru pe obraz apoi isi pune capul pe umarul tau si se lipeste de tine. Simti ca are nevoie de tine. Ii mangai capul si parul matasos si simti cum tremura sub atingerea mainii tale. Se lasa pe spate, intr-o rana si te priveste in ochi. Ii poti citi in privire dragostea pe care ti-o poarta, increderea pe care o are in tine. Poti vedea ca loialitatea sa nu va dezamagi vreodata. O asemenea iubire este foarte greu de gasit…aproape imposibil. De asta ne iubim cu totii cainii 🙂

“Iubita de VIP” e o meserie?

“Tu cu ce te ocupi”, intreaba prezentatoarea?
“Eu sunt iubita lui X”, raspunde ea, dezinvolta, naturala, ca si cum tocmai si-a prezentat titlul de doctor in sociologie aplicata. Prost.

Pe un oarecare post TV au fost, la interval de cateva luni, emisiuni despre o domnisoara care era fosta iubita a lui Y. Domnisoara facea diferite chestii si in timpul ala vorbea despre relatia ei cu Y, povestind cum a trecut peste. Sincer, am dubii. Daca la un an dupa inca vorbesti despre asta, la televiziune sau in presa scrisa, probabil nu ti-a trecut. Sau nu ai ce altceva sa spui. 🙂 Dar deviez. Singurul lucru care o face pe acea domnisoara ‘faimoasa’ e faptul c-a fost iubita lui Y. Si asta o propulseaza direct in prime-time, valoarea ei in termeni de audienta fiind inestimabila si de necontestat.

Am fost prezent la o situatie similara, dar la un nivel mai mic. Intr-un local, cu mai multe persoane prezente, au venit 2 tinere. Una dintre ele, cunostinta de-a noastra. Pe cealalta o vedeam pentru prima oara, toti cei deja prezenti. Domnisoara s-a prezentat, lasandu-ne pe toti cu gura cascata si privirea pierduta, “sunt Lenuta, prietena lui Ghita”, de parca cineva de la masa trebuia sa aiba habar cine-i Ghita asta al ei.

Deci… “iubita lui X” e o meserie? E in codul CAEN?

In constructie…
