MAGDA’S MONSTER… (As told to Carlos by Magda)

English: There is nothing better than going to your job on a Friday evening. A few Fridays ago, I arrived at my scheduled job the same way I would every week. Everything looked great besides the fact that there was somebody else at the security desk in the lobby. It was not the same smiley/nice person as usual.  I could sense there was going to be a problem. I came in, told him my name, and thought that would be the end of it. Boy was I wrong.  I encountered a monster. Not the kind you find under your bed, but the type of people who are mad at the world. The new guy at the lobby looked like he was mad at everything and everyone because it was Friday and he was on the clock. To make things worse, the last person who had left the office had told him to close the elevator. Nobody told him that the cleaner was coming to clean the office.  Naturally, our argument lasted about 45 minutes. In between that time I made around 15 phone calls. I called our bosses thinking that maybe they will have an idea on how to convince the guy to let me in. After that failed, I found a business card for the manager of the office I clean. I had taken it the week before in case I ever needed it. At the time I had no idea anything like this would ever happen. But what could I do? I called him. It was Friday night, what a shame!!! I introduced myself because I knew he didn’t even know who I was. He was as helpful as he could be. After about 25 more minutes and a ton more convincing, the security guard finally took my information down and let me into the building. Trust me, after all of that the last thing I wanted to do was clean that office. But I did!!!!

A couple of days later, I heard that the only thing that monster needed to let me into the building was my information. He obviously was just in a horrible mood and took it out on me!

This past Monday, I was waiting for my friend who was at that office. I didn’t want to go inside and was waiting outside the office. This time, my regular security girl saw me. She didn’t know I was waiting for somebody. She came outside, smiled at me and said that I didn’t have to hide. She was back and would let me in without a problem!

I think its very important to have good communication with building security. However, good communication only works until you meet a very stupid person who doesn’t even know anything about the job he is doing. Then what you need is a miracle. Time lost, and nerves as well. What else could you want form me!!!

Magda I jej potwor…

Nie ma to jak isc do ulubionej pracy w piatkowy wieczor.tak wszystko wydawaloby sie wspaniale procz faktu ze na lobby nie ma tej samej super zyczliwej osoby co zawsze..wchodzisz przedstawiasz sie  i tyle….. stajesz sie potworem bo,siedzi nieznajoma twarz…. zla chyba na wszystko i wszystkich ze musi tam byc i niestety nie chce cie wpuscic do budynku w ktorym przeciez jestes codzinnie…tlumaczac ze  ostatnia osoba wychodzaca z biura kazala mu zamknac  winde i tyle.bo przeciez nikt go nie powiadomil ze ktos przyjdzie sprzatnac biuro… nasze argumenty trwaly moze okolo 45 minut. w miedzy czasie wykonalam moze 15 telefonow albo nawet i wiecej trudno mi teraz dokladnie powiedziec. kontaktowalam sie z naszymi szefami , myslac ze moze oni maja jakis pomysl na skontaktowanie sie z kims z biura..niestety  bez  skutku. po kolejnych nieudanych probach przypomnialam sobie ze mam wizytowke bosa firmy u ktorego sprzatamy, wzielam ja przez przypadek dzien wczesniej jakbym wiedziala ze cos sie wydarzy.. dzwonie do niego , piatek wieczorem jaki wstyd!!! przedstawiam sie grzecznie bo na pewno nie wiedzial z kim rozmawia, odebral od razu i przy tym staral sie byc bardzo pomocnym.. tylko ze znowu druga strona czyli nasz security, ktory nie chcial nawet wziac mojego telefonu i poromawiac z bosem biura.. wiec  i tak to nic nie poskutkowalo  a ja czulam sie jak ostatni hmmmm “glupek” …on sam probowal zadzwonic do kogos,jak twierdzil ale chyba nie mowil prawdy..   w koncu wzial moje id i to tez z bolem serca…wiec moglam wejsc i posprzatac .. chociaz po tym calym zamieszaniu kto by chcial cokolwiek robic !!

Co sie pozniej okazalo to  ze jedyna rzecz ktora potrzebowal to wlasnie to id.

W poniedzialek czekalam przed budynkiem na kolezanke, ktrej wlasnie to biuro mialam  pokazac. zobaczyla mnie moja reguralna seciurity gir. nie wiedziala ze na kogos czekam. wyszla do mnie i usmiechajac sie powiedziala ze nie musze sie czaic bo ona na pewno mnie wpusci. Wydawac by sie moglo ze bardzo wazny jest dobry uklad z security.. no tak jest dopoki jakas inna malo myslaca osoba przyjdzie na zastepstwo ktora probuje byc nadgorliwa a przy okazji wychodzi na to ze nie za bardzo zna sie na swojej pracy. stracony nasz  czas i wiele nerwow… czego wiecej chciec!!!
