rumours and lies

i got a phone call from a friend today.

“so, where are you going?”

“uuh…probably tranquila bar for sunset, as usual, why?”

“no, no, i heard you were going off island for three months.”

“wtf, over!?”

“one of our divemasters wants to do his IDC with you and was told by the person they talked to  that you were leaving the island for three months and wouldn’t be doing any IDCs so he should do his with them.”

they call these kinds of tactics “just business”.

i guess it makes sense that, since you can’t think of anything good to say about your own program that you should just lie about everybody else’s.

or maybe you’ve already screwed the pooch on utila so badly you can’t come back again without being thrown in jail.

it really is pathetic that they would spend their time conjuring up this much negative energy to channel my way when they could just as easily put their time into learning how to actually not drive an already thriving business into the ground.

a couple of names come to mind.  they have both sworn to “destroy” me.

they’re going to have to do better than this.

    Jeeez, what’s next!

  2. I would be very interested to know which shop was doing this…

  3. it’s not a shop, it’s a person.

    freelancing on another island.

    a good lesson in not trusting people who pretend to be your friend.

  4. Thanks. At least it eleminates those instructors I know from Utila.

    But upsetting nevertheless. I’m hoping to move to Utila sooner rather than later and one reason why was to escape some of the needless drama that tends to perpetuate from Americans over exposed to Soap Operas. I guess Utila isn’t immune to stupid humans, either.

    Yeah, it’s all rumor & lies till someone gets their eye poked out!
