On Monday I decided to go to our Smartphone provider and have Mr. G's senior smartphone reactivated because he couldn't remember the codes and password.
What a story ! The employée told me that "Monsieur" has to come personally and show his identity card. I said that he is in hospital and can't move (wasn't true of course) then he answered, "we can't do anything". I asked him to come with me to the hospital which of course he refused. I proposed to come with his identity card and then he could activate the mobile. For that he said I needed a letter from his doctor that he is unable to walk and I have to have an official paper from the city administration that he gives me authorization to act in his place ! I thought what an idiot ! There must be another solution to activate the phone !
I proposed to cancel Monsieur's phone number and give me another one with my identity card. He said that it was impossible. I didn't understand why and before I killed him I left.
The next day I went back and this time it was a different seller. I told him that I want the phone in my name with a new number. He at least did it right away and there was no problem !
The next day I spent explaining the smartphone to Mr. G. I had made a drawing and indicated exactly which key he was allowed to use. He tried twice and it worked. Satisfied, I took the dirty laundry with me and drove home.
The next morning I wanted to try it out and called him on the new phone, but of course he had done something and the thing no longer worked.
I have to find another solution as he needs Whatsapp to receive calls from Italy and Amsterdam.
The week ended with beautiful sunshine and we went for lunch in our Italian restaurant. We sat on the terrace under palm trees and felt like we were on vacation.
Then the two came to me and we sat on the balcony and drank a cup of coffee. An apartment just like mine is for sale in my building and now Myriam is thinking of selling her house and possibly buying the apartment here. That would be fun if we became neighbors.
Rosie too enjoyed the sunshine but inside !
