Serena blogs from Zurich

Hey Guys,

I made it to Zurich!!!

I had so much fun in Moscow. I ended up going out to a club in Russia that plays hip hop music! Can u believe??? It was tons of fun. I loooove to dance it’s one of my fav past times.... I like watching the videos and learning new moves from the dancers. Then I try them when I go out!! Haha I'm not that good but I really do my best... It’s tons of fun.

Anyways the club was fun and I had to catch a flight at 7am and I had to leave my hotel by 4:15 because the airport was so far a way. It was good we left early because the lady that was doing the tickets and checking us in was such a complete jerk. I mean she kept telling me my CARRY ON was too heavy!!! Can u believe? So what did I do? I had to remain calm. I was ready to leave Russia so I knew if I wanted to get out I was gonna have to be calm... So I kept calm and told her I could not lighten my load (my dogs were in there). She told me that was not her concern. "Not her concern" and I had to lighten the load. She kept telling me that this was not her concern and that was not her concern, so finally I told her "look I don't think CONCERN is the opportune word. The costumer is always right u can't use this word. It’s not the right word." She did not say that word again. Thank God because y’all don't know me I'm from Compton and I was "this" close from showing her what it’s like in Compton. But if I did that I would not have made it to Zurich where I am now....

Ok I did not go to sleep I went to the airport and now I have been up 36 hrs. I am so tired. I'm sorry there is no new video diary guys I have not been able to send one from overseas. But as soon as I can get back I will send another and more! I know y’all miss my face lol!!!

Ok well I'll ttyl and keep reading the blogs! I love u all

Xxx
Serena

Wow, Serena is funny. However, I don't recommend being ghetto, cuz it just doesn't work all the time honey.

Re: New Serena Blog!!!

Definitely a funny blog entry. Hope she was also a bit self-aware about her diva-ness at the airport. It really isn't the official's concern how you get your carry-on to be within limits. Also: I wish it weren't so, but that customer-is-always-right maxim doesn't apply outside the US. And even here it isn't all that consistent. Can't bring that attitude to a 7-11 in the Bronx or a Liquor Store in Compton. Come to think of it, why is Rena frontin' like she knows how to bring it from the ghetto? She better watch herself, or she'll go down like Brenda in that Dave Chappelle skit... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-Nq6e9fb3I

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

I don't think that "customer is always right" thing in this case applies in Russia, the US or anywhere in the world. There are safety concerns about carry-ons and that's why they should be within certain limits. It's not a matter of serving the customer. Serena's attitude here is completely out of line.

Anyway, those last few blogs have been quite embarrassing. And check your spelling Serena.

Re: New Serena Blog!!!

It was rude on the part of the employee to say it's not her "concern". That is rude and a better choice of words are more professional even it if isn't her concern.

Really, don't even look at me...

Really? Go take your meds, SIR. But then again that's a reaction I expected from a mere criticism.

Re: New Serena Blog!!!

To be honest, i don't think Serena is the one who writes or does her website....i think one of her team members does it.
