Walking on Sunshine!
So today the impossible happened.
I got a missed call on my mobile at 16:09 this afternoon. I was away from my desk and my phone was in my drawer.
I look at who the missed call was from and sigh. It was the electrician. The electrician who really should have fixed our intercom when we moved in 8 months ago. I called him back. It was 16:17. He asked me if I was at home. I said I was still at work but I’d be finishing at 4:30. He explained that he wanted to come over to look at the intercom. I had plans after work but this preceded them. I said it would take me 20-30 minutes to walk home from work and he said he’d meet my there. By the time I got up to my apartment, he was already waiting for me outside of my front door.
I let him in and I showed him where the intercom was. He looked at it, pushed a few buttons and then took of the front panel. After pushing a few more buttons he told me to go downstairs and call the apartment – to which I complied. I called and all of a sudden the intercom was working. Something that we had been waiting 8 months for took all of 5 minutes to fix. This realisation irritated me. I thanked the electrician and let him out of the apartment then it hit me. No more writing notes of deliveries, no more running down 14 flights of steps to get to the ground floor only to find that whoever was there had left already.. No more inconvenience!
For this reason and this reason alone I am definitely walking on sunshine!
