It was a scary day at work today. I was ready to go home actually, when I walked to the front desk and passed a group of people in total panic and the secretary on the phone with the police. From what I could hear, something bad had happened next to the building and it was very important that they would be here fast.
I needed to ask the secretary something before I could leave. And she told me that two dogs were left in a car, steaming in the burning sun. Someone told her a half hour ago, but the owner still wasn’t found, so she called the police.
Some of the other people were freaking out too, and one of them got a hammer and walked back to the car. I called the Animal Ambulance to ask if they could do something. But they told me to call the police, they are not authorized to break into a car. But what do you do when you call the police (we did twice!) and they just don’t show up? The lady really got mad, but a hammer isn’t strong enough for a car window. Another man helped her out with a special hammer (those with diamond), she smashed a window, we got the dogs out and look who’s there?! The police…
We didn’t care much and walked the dogs back into the building. They needed care first. And while we were walking, the owner passed us. “Those are my dogs!” ‘Well, we got them now. This is a serious crime!! And your window is broken’, the other lady said while still walking.
We got the dogs inside, gave them a big bowl of water and cooled them down. Ten minutes later the police came too, together with the owner. The other lady actually got charged for breaking the window! But the dogs were okay and I wasn’t needed anymore, so I went back to the front desk, finished the last thing I needed to do for work, calmed down the secretary and went home.
Luckily, I can tell about something nice today too. For the last 1,5 year, I work as a temp for a Secretary Agency. It really is a good agency, but I finally wanted a steady job. Just one office, where I can be my own boss and where I don’t need to learn new protocols and people every 3 ~ 7 months. Today is my last day on contract with the agency and my current boss offered me a contract!
I do still need to sign, but I just saw the concept and it’s not bad. Actually, it turned out to be a little better than I wished for! There’s one thing I still need to check, but if that is okay, I can sign my contract on Wednesday!
