Good day everyone . Why today is a good day ? It is very good question .
Today I want to tell you a story, a simple story about the first day on my new job.
Yesterday ,I went to the hotel where I will be working as a night porter but because I had lack of experience (bar-serving the drinks,customer service etc.) I was asked to come and get some practice.
I am tempted to say .. that evening was fantastic.
To start with , I went in a hotel ,it was full of hustle and bustle ,it was all about the preparation on the evening` event .
I went to the bar with my supervisor(James),got to know where is the stuff(drinks,glasses,prices etc.) and then.. I saw one gentlemen in a military form , I asked James – is he real militarists or? He answered me “No,he`s not,today we have an event where all are supposed to be dressed-up as if they were back in 1930s” .
Being nerd , I was watching a few similar events , for instance comic-con in London . But I never had been in such old-fashion event like yesterday I was in.Purely because I am not very familiar with that period of time .
All the ladies were in a old-fashion/military dresses ,they wore interesting dresses and old-fashion tights (very old fashioned) ,some of them wore a hat.I saw two Afro-American gentlemen ,one of them was in a black suit (like back in 1930 – very rich businessman) ,and other wore trousers with pair of braces and in baker boy cap (like simple worker) .There were the singers(two ladies) who was wearing a military costume with labels and insignias etc.Another woman had a fox(dead version of it) as a part of her dress All the music was from the 1930s.
There also was a group of middle-age people(50-60+) who were dancing as it supposed to be in the 1930s.James told me that those guys are “Our old customers ,they have an event in October when they reserve the whole hotel for 4 days and enjoy that time immensely.”
After all , I enjoyed all that time what I spent there, I really did. You know..when you make the similar event,all you want to achieve is ..that everyone should experiencing the same emotions and feelings if they would be in the 1930s.I must admit,in that time even my father was a child and I haven`t got any knowledge about all that time.. but I have a confession to make – somehow , completely out of the blue , I was a part of that , I felt that all those people had had something in common , they were succeeded in bringing such an old[past] atmosphere ..
I also was thinking about the time.Nowadays the technology was captured the majority of the people , when if you haven`t got the account in Facebook – it means that you are the wild man and you need to go back into your cave. The technology is rushing somewhere..every second counts. But i think that the past is like the book which is full of recondite information.All the information is old but it`s valuable nonetheless.
When I went to home completely exhausted I went to bed straight away but the music was still playing , the dancing couples were still flashing into my mind . Now , after 7 hours of sleep , I don`t feel even a half of these feelings or emotions but you know what? Something from that day was entrenched inside of me .. something very old but still important.
