Since we are working everyday and the car is picking up dust i thought i would give you all a brief insight into the people we work with. Someone once said "its not what you know.. Its who you know" well that crazy person may have taken a different view if he were in my shoes right now.
Lets start with the boss... A pregnant german lady, i hope she is pregnant anyway or else the "whens it due" question may mean i should pack my bags very soon. She is the typical german very strict and you know she means business.
The superviser is a native indian woman called angel.. Believe me she ain't no angel. She has a poster of her favourite wrestler on the back of the door so i do not want to get on the wrong side of her for fear of a royal rumble.
Then there are the other housekeeping staff. Mayumi is form Japan and she laughs at everything. "he he he you so fwunny" she is 40 but looks mid 20's and although a very thourough cleaner, autumn may come sooner than she can make a bed. But she is very nice and friendly.
Lindsay the person who has been here the longest (4 weeks) likes to sing out loud for about 6 hours of our 8 hour day! I like a sing song as much as the next person and she dosnt have the worst voice, but singing johny cash's ring of fire when its boiling hot or romantic ballads when im scrubbing the toilet dosnt make the day any easier.
There is a czech guy who is ok because he dosnt speak much and didnt quite grasp at 9am on a sunday morning that people may be still in bed by reiterating "check out...check out...check out" to a woman in her pajamas. She must of thought she was getting an early eviction.
Apart from these people there are a few maintenance people who dont just tell you what to do they repeat the same sentance over and over again. Today we had the lecture on cleaning the mosquito squash marks from the walls where Brian the maintance guy must of said 20 times, i think people must use there shoes to squash them why would they do that! When angel asked me to get rid of two mosquitos i went to take off my shoe. It got a laugh so at least i know for sure the canadians can take a joke. When i waited to slap the mozzy until it was on brians face, the joke went to far. Only joking i wouldnt do that i have kids to feed.
Im sure i will unearth more of my colleagues characters as the weeks roll by slowly so there will be updates.
