A scary day at work

      No Comments on A scary day at work

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!

A small holiday

/me says thanks to the spaghetti monster, for all those Christian holidays. Because thanks to those holidays, I had five days off this weekend! And how nice and relaxing it was…

On Thursday we didn’t do a lot. We slept through the morning and visited a friend in the afternoon. But Friday we went to Thermen Bussloo, a spa near Twello. It was really delightful!! Of course it was scary at first, you need to get totally naked in front of a lot of people you don’t know, at a place you don’t know. But I started off with a Hamam treatment; ten minutes of steaming (in a cabin, with two people you don’t know), after that you’ll get a scrub, a soapy massage and a cup of tea. When you’ve done that, nothing else matters anymore. So we spent the rest of the day in luxury and relaxation. Swimming naked in the pools, steaming in a steam cabin or just one of the several sauna’s, enjoying the healthy foods, laying in the sun, watching all those other naked people. In the afternoon I got another massage, Scen toa hot stone, which was really amazing! We relaxed some more, ate dinner and went home twelve hours after arrival.

Saturday we went to Hilversum with Zarya. I wanted to go to the Rifwachter, a huge fish store where they have really cool and special fishes. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the Apistogramma Macmasteri and Parotocinclus Jumbo where I was looking for. But they did have the Nannostomus Espei!! I didn’t buy those, because I still need to fix some things, and now my lights are broken too… After that, I saw some other little shops where I wanted to watch, and the boys went to an army dump store and the MyCom.

Sunday was also a relaxing day. First I dyed my sisters hair (she’s totally blond now). After that, r3boot and I walked across the heathland and romanticly went out to dinner at a pancake restaurant.

I still have a day off today, but like every other Monday, I’m gonna spent this day cleaning the house.
