Notes to myself / Par poznamek

Dear myself,

after today’s experience, here are some notes for you. Next time when you agree to an evening interpreting job in an unknown place almost 2 hrs journey away, with all different transport types involved, please remember this:

  • Note No 1 – If you are so organised that you search online and write down on a paper, how to get to the place including where to change from train to bus, bus stop, number of the bus etc  – don’t leave that paper on a table at home when going there.
  • Note No 2 – Don’t forget to get your papers signed after you finish the job (without signature there is no pay). It is not much fun to remember the papers when already on a bus towards train station from where you continue long journey home. It is not enjoyable jumping of the bus in dark unknown area and racing back to reception before they close!
  • Note No 3 – It is not desirable when finally back on the bus with signed papers to be so overwhelmed with relieve that you miss the train station by THREE STOPS and have to yet again race on foot to catch a train.
  • FINAL NOTE: When you agree to an evening job miles away, DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR BRAIN!

PS: Yes, this all happened to me in one evening 😉

Moje mile JA,

tady je par poznamek pro tebe. Az priste zase budes souhlasit s vecerni praci tlumoceni v neznamem miste vzdalenem od domova temer 2 hodiny cesty (nekolika ruznymi typy mestske dopravy), pamatuj si toto:

  • Poznamka cislo 1 – Kdyz uz jsi tak organizovana, ze si pred cestou vyhledas na internetu a zapises na papir, jak se na to vzdalene misto dostanes, kde mas prestoupit, cisla zastavek a autobusu, nenechavej tento papir doma na stole.
  • Poznamka cislo 2 – nezapomen dat k podpisu formulare po skonceni prace (bez podpisu nedostanes zaplaceno). Neni to moc sranda, kdyz si vzpomenes na podpis az v autobuse smerem vlakove nadrazi, odkud mas pokracovat dlouhou cestu domu. Neni ani zabavne vyskocit z autobusu v neznamem prostredi po setmeni a zavodit pesky zpatky na recepci pro podpis, nez tam zavrou.
  • Poznamka cislo 3 – Kdyz se konecne znova usadis v autobuse smerem vlakove nadrazi, neni zadouci byt tak omamena pocitem ulevy, ze prejedes vlakove nadrazi o TRI zastavky a musis zase bezet zpatky po svych.
  • Poznamka zaverem – kdyz uz souhlasis s vecerni praci na mile daleko od domova, prosim te – VEM SI S SEBOU MOZEK!

PS: Ano, tohle vsechno se mi podarilo za jeden vecer!
