I’m not racist

Phone rang at the centre yesterday morning

Was a weird long ass number

Thought it might have been important

Boy was I wrong

I knew straight away when I answered

The indian voice on the other end of the line asked

“am I speaking with the owner of the company”

Told me his first name

And then asked me if I knew about a new service called Google listings or somefink

But here’s the thing

I had no idea who I was talking too

He never gave me a company name

Was he from Google? Who knew…

Proceeds to tell me about Google listings anyway

But I cut him off told him I’m not interested

And he then has the cheek to say

Get this

“Give me 30 seconds”


Now whether this guy had something I may have been interested in or not is irrelevant

I cut him off because I didn’t trust him



Had no idea who he worked for

And what the purpose of the call was,

I even asked him what this was about at the start

But he didn’t tell me

Trust is an important value of mine

And it’s why I offer a trial to SF Fitness first


To build that trust with you

So you can make up your mind

Before committing to hiring us as your fitness experts
