The Little Gym

[ #14591 ]
Pablo, my older son (who is five year old now) was going last year to a gym club for little children. And we were not statisfied by this club, named The Little Gym, apparently a spin-off of a North-American group. (We tried it because it was located in Lyon Vaise, a few dozen meters away from our home.) My son had swimming lessons ; his professor changed every month or so, and the date and time of his class even more often. So much for the pedagogical relationship with the teacher (esp. knowing that my son has the same problems with socializing than his geekish father.) Moreover the classes were rather expensive, compared to others. Well, to summarize it, we wanted to end the contract -- if we didn't notify the club's manager, the contract was tacitly renewed.

So my wife went to the club and just said that -- very politely, without anger, explaining what we didn't like and why we were leaving. And what did happen ? The club's manager and owner went mad and did insult her, in front of my son and other parents, calling her an hysterical shit-covered teenager (merdeuse hystérique), threatening to call the cops (for a reason that remains completely obscure), and last but not least, violently insulting my own son -- who was present --, calling him a worthless and socially inadapted kid, in two words a congenital idiot, and that he wanted no clients like us anyway.

Fucking shit. Who's that guy ? A nostalgic of the Hitlerjugend ? His business is too good for us ? And why are people like this are allowed to work with little children anyway ? Someone is going to have very negative publicity. He doesn't know which kind of relations has my wife.
