I'm pretty sure I'll get a lot of backlash over this, but that in mind, here goes.
Here is a comment I recently read from an Indian national cricketer on being forced into lockdown shockdown in Brisbane apparently where they are playing the Aussies.
(And you on this list are well versed with my views on wearing masks, lockdowns etc. Believe me, I have not worn a mask since the so called pandemic that China spread started, and I've avoided situtions when I NEED to wear masks, because I dont believe in “panic shanic” and so forth ... and, well, we've been over this haven't we?)
but it's hilarious.
"We are locked up in our rooms, have to make our own beds, clean our own toilets. Food is coming from a nearby Indian restaurant which will be given to us on our floor," members of the travelling Indian contingent described the hotel as to The Times of India.
Now before I continue, here is what a female Aussie cricketer said on this.
(curiously enough, the dudes haven't been responding. HA! Either way, LOL)
👋🏻 - the Aus and NZ women’s teams did their quarantine in the same hotel last year. Here’s a shock - we survived....
So said a certain “Alyssa Healy”.
I haven't followed women's cricket as closely as I follow men's (I know, I know. How dare I).
So, I am not sure, but I think she's the captain of the ladies's cricket team, or something to that effect.
I DO know she's a well decorated player, and has recieved awards etc, so she's a “somebody” in that regard.
But it isn't so much the complaint itself which is funny and which I don't necessarily disagree with.
I'd be PISSED. Big time.
Seems they are too ...
But “making our own beds”.
And so forth, hehe.
I know housekeeping does all that in a hotel (perhaps at home too for some people, but yours truly hasn't any such luck in YEARS).
Yours truly “caveman” probably wouldn't WANT IT either.
Last I was in a hotel was before the plague in January.
And housekeeping literally had to pester me to (as the Chinese say) “Qing” (please) get the room cleaned, beer bottles taken out etc after three days.
And the bed made, hehe.
I still remember the giggles the girl gave me.
Maybe the purpose was different, but hey.
A few days of living alone and doing the things mentioned doesnt hurt no-one, even if you're NOT a caveman that is admittedly allergic to maids, housekeeping etc clanging doorbells and showing up JUST when you're about to write something.
And what not.
I would rather just do it myself.
So I have.
So it is in the military for one, and so would say Mr T who “lives alone and trains alone”.
SPOILT brats is the term that comes to mind here.
And I'm sure Sunil Gavaskar if he is reading this would agree to “some extent”.
So would another former India player Irfan Pathan who keeps urging players NOT to complain as Alyssa healy did – when they're getting to travel, PLAY, and be handsomely compensated for it while the whole world?
Well, you know that part of it.
But perhaps the Punteer, the one and only Ricky Ponting said it best when he said you don't see the Aussies, who are putting up with it too complain.
Neither did the Indians complain when the same thing, or close to it was done during the Indian Premier League (held in India). NO-one did, actually.
Mollycoddling and being SPOILT brats in a country with cheap labor is one thing, and they DO have the right to be that.
I wouldn't be that though. Hehe.
Fitness wise, I want NO PART of such pampering and mollycodding.
Those that expect something for nothing.
Those that expect me to “go easy on them".
The fat asses who complain about “me saying just do it” when I tell them to just lose weight ... and so forth.
Anyway, thats my take on it.
Get on with it, bro. It's just that simple. And a few days of caveman like living never hurt anyone. Who knows, you might learn to make beds like those ladies do all the time for us (not me, but you get the drift LOL).
I'm out. Back soon!
PS – Here is where you can find the MOST brutally honest fitness system that just flat out WORKS – the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
PS #2 – Goose and gander. But that isn't a concern for many that complain!
PPS - My living quarters, sans maid and such aren't actually so nasty (for those, and I'm sure certain women are wondering that are wondering). But, more on that on the other site, hehe.
