Just some things that occured on work last few days:
Guy without brain (I)
A guy came into our office to move in. After handing over the keys to him he asked: “So, I’m allowed to move in, now?”
I: “No, unfortunately, you are not allowed to move in until you got the keys.”
He: “Well, when will I get the keys?”
Opening door needs a diploma
Because of the chilly temperatures (about 0°C and below) outside, we shut the door during consultation times, but everyone is able to open it by simply pushing the door open. We even have a sign at the door reading “Push” – AT EYE LEVEL!!!
You just don’t wanna count how often the doorbell rings…
Is reading that difficult?
Caretakers have to be mindreaders
Recently, another guy came in. He stood in front of me and began to stare. I stared back with a asking glance. After about 30 seconds the guy said: “Oh, I must have forgotten to ask…”
Guy without brain (II)
I entered a room to check the radiator, because the tenant complained that it wasn’t functioning. The first thing I noticed: The window was opened. I stepped over to the radiator and found it turned off.
The tenant was actually at home, so I had the chance to ask him why the radiator wasn’t functioning. He told me, that it was always cold in his room (I guess the room-temperature at the time I’ve been there was about 12°C). I asked him if he tried to turn on the radiator and close the window. He answered: “I don’t want to close the window…” (Okay o.O) “… because I like to have fresh air in my room.” (d’oh!!!)
So I asked: “And what about the radiator…?”
He: “It’s up and running.”
I: “No, it isn’t.”
He: “Yes, it is, I turned it on just before you came here.”
I: “Actually, you must have turned it off – it is currently turned off.”
He: “Really? But the star on the thermostat DOES mean that it is keeping my room warm…”
Fortunately I didn’t have a knife with me…
