I remember 1 crazy month in my first company (a language school) in Geneva. In 4 weeks we had problems with moving from Aix-les-Bains to Annemasse (the Landlady didn’t want to give us the caution back), I had chickenpox (which most of time happens to children) and I sprained my ankle.
Just to explain little bit in details, the Landlady thought we destroyed her brand new mattress (which Eryk’s Mam, who gave us the greatest support during that hard times, spotted to come from 1996 – from the label) and said she has to keep the caution which was 400 euros. It was a very big amount for us during these times… In the end, after many official letters, visits, shouts and explanations, she gave us everything back and even wished all the best for the future. I sprained my ankle during one of these unpleasant calls she gave me at 8 in the morning, as I didn’t notice a step near the Mairie of Annemasse. As for chickenpox, I have no idea where I got it from, but I went to the doctor on Sunday and she was claiming for 2 hours it couldn’t be a chickenpox as it happens only to children. It was Eryk, who guessed that this was Chickenpox and proved her wrong.
I remember one of my colleagues Christelle said during a BBQ at work that these kind of stories don’t happen to normal people and that I might be from a different planet 🙂 That is when I definitely thought I should write down all these adventures. 6 years later, here we go 😀
A few memories from old times with my first company. My good friend Andrea, with whom I will be watching a football match next Saturday in Geneva and a nice girl Aurore diguised with a beard. Below those, revisiting Aix les Bains in 2012 during Euro in Poland (the t-shirt come from Kasia K. who visited us during this period – I am mentioning it as we are very much into football nowadays 🙂 ). There is also a photo of big house in which we used to live – but we lived in a small 25m2 part (which had no windows in the room, I will explain in another post) and a photo of a park nearby.
