This may sound just straight forward bizarre to most people, but there is actually a restaurant somewhere in the Philippines that I cant mention here at the moment that has a very unique and strange service that is designed to get your stress out. Who ever thought about this idea is either a genius or just having his own personal problems, but who cares! Its working so far, that’s what matters, isn’t it?.
In this simple restaurant and bar, there is a special room where stressed employees, managers, housewives even can go inside by them selves or two of them at a time (this is with a fee of course) and they can just release all their anger and frustrations in that room by bashing cheap chinaware on the wall. You can shout like a lunatic, cry your heart out, there’s even an altar where you can put your ex boyfriends picture and just smash him away with all the chinaware there. In case you’re afraid some one will hear your wails of despair, this room is completely sound proof and no one can hear you as you scream like crazy and just release your anger and after that “moment”, you come outside a new man or woman. Though this seems to be a crazy idea, it is gradually gaining popularity.
I have not been there personally but I heard people talk about it, and honestly, I doubt I’ll be making a visit in the near future. I just bought my mobile phone insurance for my iPhone just recently because I accidentally threw it when I was waving my phone frantically when stressing a point in a sales meeting. I didn’t have phone insurance before so now I’ve learned my lesson. So what does this have to do with that restaurant?
Well, when you pay to go in the room, you get a limited number of plates to bash. Im kindda afraid I may use up all those damn china and not do the job for me and I maybe tempted to just smash anything with me, and that may just be my iPhone. I don’t think mobile phone covers damages from temporary insanity so id better not do it at all.
Seriously now, I think if this trend does pick up, I can now really see that our society is in the brink of emotional deterioration and just maybe, the next big idea would be smashing glasses in your next salon visit.
