A few days ago,bored (actually, more of feeling guilty because of over eating during the long holidays) I hit the gym at FX.
Klank, klunk, klank, klunk, dumbell-barbell-machines-treadmill..... I was done after 1 half hours.
Headed to the locker room. Took a shower. Went back to the locker and started to get dressed when suddenly from the corner of my eyes I saw a guy standing next to me.
Guy : Mas. Mau beli taysert gak?
I turned to him. He was clad only in towel.
Me : Hah? Kaset?(cassette) Gak mas. Makasih ya.
*Hello!!!??? People moved on to CDs a gazillion years ago*
Guy : Mas. Mau beli taysert ngak? Saya punya banyak merek.
Me : Gak mau mas. Saya udah lama pakai CD.... emangnya kaset ada merek?
Guy : Ada. Benetton. Gap. Adidas. Nike. Bagus-bagus lho taysertnya.
Me : Lho?? Emangnya mas jual apa ya?
Guy : Taysert. Kaos, mas.
Me : Oooooh! Tee-Shirt??! Teeeee- Shirrrt??
*it's a good idea if you wear one now*
Guy : Yach. Taysert!
Me : Gak pa pa. Makasih ya mas.
Guy : Sepatu mau gak? Adidas, Nike, Converse.
Me : Gak pa pa ya mas. Makasih.
Guy : Kalo suplemen-nya mau gak? Saya punya merek yang bagus-bagus.
Me : Waduh mas. Saya lagi keburu nih. Makasih ya!
Off I went leaving him standing there. With a white towel wrapped around his waist. Failed to make a sale. But still smiling.
Ya iyalah!!! Masa mau jualan cuman pakai handuk??? Gila!!
I wasn't expecting that to happen in the locker room of a gym. This kind of thing is a norm at for instance Soekarno-Hatta Airport ... you know when people approach you and speaking in a hush tone offering perfumes or watches. Or at bus terminals or train stations or open space car parks.
But in a Celebrity Fitness locker room????
A sign of hard times perhaps??
