I've got your 'not bookable' right here.

I've got your 'not bookable' right here.


“Momma, want watch blue train.”
“Mini, just let Mommy do this one thing right now, OK?”
“WATCH BLUE TRAIN.”
“Yeah, I know you want to watch the blue train, just, not right this very second, I have to try to get this –”
“WATCH TRAIN NOW. OKAY, MOMMA?”
“I know! Hold on, dude! Just, can you — honey, please, will you just set up the train show for him? I’m trying to get into my stupid spinning class.”
“OK.”
“Thank you. Come on, stupid thing — it is 26 hours before the class begins! Why won’t you just let me in?!”
“You know, I was talking to them at the desk, and they said that if you use the iPhone app, you have a better chance of getting in.”
“BLAST! OH MY GOD! It is so annoying! I’m sitting here, hitting refresh over and over, and it says “not bookable, not bookable, not bookable, notbookablenotbookable, and then BAM! ‘Class is full!’ HOW?! How is the ‘Class Full’?”
“Maybe you need to use the iPhone App. They said — ”
“Please. Like that matters. Like they would even be able to code something like that. I don’t — I’m not even sure that is possible, honey, to give preference in the class based on the browser you’re using. You would have to — I don’t even know how you would do that.”
“Well, that’s what they said.”
“Like they know ANYTHING.”
“I’m sorry you didn’t get your class.”
“Thanks. It’s just SO ANNOYING.”
“Maybe they give preference, like you cannot get in every week or something –”
“NO. IT’S THE SAME PEOPLE EVERY WEEK.”
“OK.”
“Every single week, the same people!”
“They said that that one class, with that guy, is the most popular class at that gym in the entire country.”
“That can’t be right.”
“Well, that’s what they said.”
“I find that very hard to believe.”
“Well, they said their cycling studio is smaller than a lot of other places, so that’s part of why.”
“OK, well, maybe it’s possible, I guess.”
“I’ve seen that guy. He’s a douche. He runs around the class yelling at people to work harder, and he’s not even riding the bike! What a douche!”
“He rides the bike sometimes. It just depends.”
“What kind of a douche does that? Yells at people because they’re not working hard, and he hasn’t even broken a sweat yet!”
“Yeah, well — yeah, he is kind of a douche sometimes.”
“Why don’t you just go to another class, then?”
“Well, because his class is the best.”
“Douches make good spinning instructors?”
“Apparently.”
