Here’s a copy of the sticker price on the car in the lobby of the local mall in Florida here.
Oh, it’s just a 2016 Rolls Royce for a mere $362,225.00
The car was unbelievably gorgeous.
But the extravagance of it compared with the regular poor, hungry and homeless people on the streets as well as the vast majority of all the other everyday middle class people is enough to make you want to puke.
Immediately after this, when we got back to the hotel, the maid was still in the room cleaning up.
I had the opportunity to see–really see–this lady–this person.
She was overly respectful, calling me sir numerous times, unnecessarily.
She was kind in finishing the room quickly and asking if their was anything else we needed.
But I also noticed that despite her labor-intensive job cleaning up other people’s shit in the hotel rooms, she had a bum leg and had trouble walking and just getting around.
I thought to myself why was it that this poor lady was destined to have to clean my and other people’s hotel rooms for a grueling living.
The next day, I saw some mini shampoo and conditioner containers that had fallen to the side of the tiny garbage can in the bathroom (didn’t make the shot).
I looked down–I thought for a split second, that’s what the hotel get’s paid for to clean up and service the guests–but only for a SPLIT second.
Then I bent my own stupid ass over, and picked up the bottles and put them in the garbage where they belong.
The lady coming to clean the room doesn’t drive a Rolls Royce and definitely, neither do I.
We are one under G-d, and may he bless us all in prosperity, health, and peace. 😉
