Golden goose or lazy cow?

The silliness of all the people mentioned in this story amazes me. Mimi Monica Wong, a top banker in Hong Kong, agrees to pay "two Latin dance instructors HK$120 million ($15.4 million) for eight years of [salsa] lessons." She even pays an advance of more than half that amount. Then one of those instuctors calls her a "lazy cow." Wong goes to court to complain and gets the advance back.

You might ask what was Ms Wong thinking, paying so much money? I want to know what the dance instructors were thinking. One thing I've learnt in all my years of bovine study: a cow that is rich and generous should never, ever, be called lazy.
