#48. Schippol

i woke up at 6 in the morning so that i could catch a train on 7 o'clock. i managed to do that. when i got to Schipol it was only 8.30 and i'm sure i could see the station manager.

i was a bit late. he's already at the gate, but the good thing was he'll return to the desk.

i chatted with my dad's colleague about over weight and all kind of tipical chat you'll have with your dad's co-worker, but then he had to go to the gate to check the plane so i left alone.

this guy Michael, a desk keeper (he's a ctually being paid to get all the jobs before flight done) finally talk to me. he saw me the first day i was here, and he's wondering if i'm still here for the same reason.

i told him my luggage stuff and the reason why. he just laughed and confused why do people always asked someone coming from Netherlands to bring the cheese. he's around my age so it's easy to chatted with him. he asked me where's my next plan, and i said i'm done with Europe, i'll try something else.

anyways, despite the nice chat i still have to see this station manager guy, and after waited for two hours i finally got to see him. i gave him my dad's letter and he asked how much is my overweight. when i said 40 kilo he just scratch his head and said "waduh, kalo 10 kilo saya lolosin deh, tapi sekarang ini bukan keputusan saya lagi. ada bos baru disini, dan orangnya saklek. kamu temui beliau aja dulu, minta keputusan dari beliau."

so i went to the office to see this guy.

he's a bataknese, he's a huge scary guy, and yeah, he's absolutely not my favorite person. i got a nicer deal since he said "saya nggak bisa kasih free, tapi saya kasih setengah harga" and Veronica, the lady i met the other day was so curious with how my luggage end up.

i told her i got a half price, and this nice lady looked at me and tried to cheer me up saying "it's better than nothing." she also help me to booked my seat and made sure the people at the desk tomorrow will get the note saying i only pay half price. i like this lady very much!! she's very helpful and kind, and when she said she'll call back, she did call back.

i really miss home right now, i miss everything, i miss everyone. i can't wait for tomorrow.
