If you ever changed your job…

As always i passed by Opèra in Paris this morning and right in front of me on an almost empty platform a guy standing with his accordion. I guess he already entered his working place riding the Metro back and forth playing for people, like me, whom will grant him with an angry stare wondering why the hell can’t I take the Metro without being forced to listen to “La vie an rose”?

At the same time I can’t stop thinking… If I ever change work again I wan’t something like that. Completely without taking any decisions, enter the working place, do what I am suppose to do and when the day is over leave and not look back at that day at all.

Unfortunately work like that never pay enough to even cover a half months rent where I live now so it is kind of a dream to have 10 – 15 years of easy work before retirement, without work stress.

But of course, playing accordion on the subway or to sit in the checkout at Monoprix or ICA creates other stress I guess, how to earn the Euros needed to live.

But still, if I ever change work again, so nice to just be and leave the working place never looking back on that day.

why did i eat those frogs

Frogs, making fun of the French?

Not at all, “varför åt jag dessa grodorna” is a way of saying (if you are older than 35) “shit happens” or maybe “that was stupid of me”.

So what now? What have you done? I kind of ended up in the same situation as last year, alone to plan a conference. Not planned but still happens.

Hopefully the escalator take me up there again in the future

And today he will arrive

And today he will arrive

And no, It’s not a religious statement, the person to arrive today is the new manager at work. We are not many in my department at the moment so when he is here we will be 2 1/2 person (including the new manager). So lets say we look forward to some days with a lot of updates and training and then together we will take a deep breath and work.

When the salary is late

Late…

When something is late it’s never a good sign. Late bus, late train or even the late flights, no good. Late for a meeting, women when the “curse” is late or when someone hand over the really important power point presentation late (second before you need it).

But one thing bugs me a lot, when the salary is late. For heavens sake you had ONE job.

In my case a late pay check means I can’t transfer money in time for my loan, Abracadabra, 50 euro penalty. And do work take care of that? Not likely.

Just bugs me

  • In a Global world when banks have offices all over Europe why cant the same bank in France take over the loan? To save transfer fees for me?
  • Why do the 3 bank day rule exist? If the bank need money there is no three days but transfer does.

Globalization is not for the man on the floor

Now official

If U not noticed, it’s official, summers over.

Yes, from 30 degrees to what I consider as minus degrees even it it’s not. And the dark dark mornings. Not as bad in Paris as in Sweden when you during winter with no problem at all can miss daylight completely if you have normal office hours. And I said it before, if anytime of the year Sweden need daylight saving it’s during winter, NOT summer.

Weekend’s over

Weekend – What a drag

No, the weekend as such is a nice invention but still… Doin’ nothing, nada, rien… For a lot of reasons. First of all rain, so much rain, and I need to downsize my money spending for October and November cause of the tax I wait for to be paid and then add the Halloween weekend in Norrköping and Stockholm. So stay at home and do the French homework and fresh up the mp3 tagging and have a look at this, my website. Amazed on how long it takes to get the Eurovision info ready….

But, now it’s Monday, after some bad nights with not much sleep cause of the full moon (picture bad I have no idea how to snap a good picture of the moon, cause it looks so much better IRL). And I know it’s only make believe but and maybe a self-fulfilling prophecy but I do sleep bad when the moon hanging over the Paris roof tops or where ever I am.

But let us hope for early nights this week and long sleep without interruptions from the younger crowd in the house either having a neverending apéro or storming in around 05h00 in the morning. As some of you know by now happening Mondays and/or Thuesdays.
