Going Up! How does it feel to be an Elevator Operator

We usually see them, in posh hotels, airports, malls and even in several multi level parking buildings and pass by them normally without saying the respectful thank yous. Their daily work routine start an hour earlier than the standard opening and closing hours of the unit they’re assigned to, to ensure that the hoisting equipment operates without any glitch and assure the riding public will use it safe and sound. This is just one of the odd job we somehow taken for granted but we shouldn’t, as our safety is their paramount concern while we are inside and transferring floors up and down the premises.

I took the liberty to asked few questions to an on-duty elevator operator of the SM Mall Parking building in Quezon City and these were her words. “We operate at eight hours a day with an hour break and the only downside of being inside a lift if felt once i’m on duty. Dizziness and sleepiness since were confined in a four metal walls with only an exhaust fans as the source of ventilation during each trip. Aside from mandatory physical wall surfaces cleanliness we need to firmly check on the scheduled PMS of the unit and give heads up to the concerned office to  perform accordingly.” said Ms Kristel Joy Oliveros

Their job is just like those of people providing transportation services and we must never take them for granted as it is our safest vertical transportation needs that they’re up to and without them i’m sure you’ll never know what to do once you got trap inside a dark and not ventilated volumetric cubicle space in the absence of an elevator operator.

How to be a Good Promodizer

Buyers often wanna hear and  things first before they give you their full attention and buy the product we’re selling. said Joy Herrera, a Sales Promodizer in one of the biggest mall in Asia. The day starts with the long lines to punch-in and get prepared inside the locker rooms putting enough make up as per mall standards. Fix to sell is what they’re told to, smile and be alert all the time.

We’re selling something not as basic as items such as apparel or groceries but gadgets like cameras, mobile phones and karaoke equipment that requires a lot of demonstration in order to entice the buyers and ring the cashiers box occasionally. Standing for long period hours also gives us a tired leg in the evening but it is the art of dealing profitably with customers that makes us a standout as a promodizer in any part of the mall. The free use of the equipment during demonstration brings us the better side of our job that makes us a better promo seller as days passes by, proudly shared by Mr. Joliver Morales

And being in a very stiff competition with other brand ambassadors, we are compelled to do our best to get notice and land that sale of the items were handling. Thinking of creative ways but of reasonable gestures that’ll make the customer stay and seek some inquiry is almost an equivalent to making a list of possible buyer come grand sales day.

How to Achieve a Drug Free Society

Every nation dreamt of a peaceful society, community and people free of any substance from their body unless it is under the medical prescription which is of tolerable count. And we are all wanting it desperately, as the old saying goes that a healthy nation is a wealthy nation. Why do people tend to fall to this illegal and health deteriorating medium? having the knowledge it could create still they give it a try, out of curiosity and a long incomprehensible reasons they can give us just to make a scapegoat as to why and why they’re on it.  Is there an end in sight to fully get rid of it in our society, we are seeing, hearing and witnessing the strong drive towards the achievement of a drug free society. No need to expound the headlines of broadsheets and tabloids local and abroad. It is a menace that really took toll of our countrymen and the system way of living in every part of the world. Where to start is the next big question, we are now modernly living the fast lane of the 21st century that almost everything can be transacted right in the tip of our fingers, sadly to say including illegal drugs.

Our world are greatly divided by vast oceans and long distance travel is a must by moving from one country to another and we all passess through a series of terminals called the airports, seaports be it in the capital or the so called backdoors. Putting an extra strict security policy and execution of the same fair and square will somehow limit the entry of the illegal substances subject for immediate destruction. Is it doable? Where are these illegal substances originated? And why they keep on evolving?

Before the World War I and World War II,  it is also a farfetched idea if it will end, for people to live harmoniously or if a peace is still achievable. And in peace, majority of us are now living except to those country where insurgency is at high but they’re also finding ways to achieve peace, the reason? because every country leaders strived for it. Would it be possible for the eradication of drugs in the society? It is if everybody participated, cooperated and sing the same fine tune in respect to their views and  predicament towards the full elimination of the menace through a sound controlled distribution of chemicals acting as varied ingredients in coming up with those hallucination inducers. Illegal drugs elimination must be taken seriously the same way every nation’s leader took the world peace as before. Is it doable? Yes it is but when.

As long as the amount to acquire it equates a fortune, more and more “business minded” people will continue to venture to it and add up to the long standing problem which offers a simple solution by silent-elimination starting with “not highlighting the report about illegal drugs” to keep it away for good to the eyes and ears of the youth. Remember that curiosity kills the cat thing? For in curiosity everything starts and at the middle everybody get stucked till they wont be able to return to the previous state they’ve been. Plug the source seriously.  Like a handful of coins thrown onto the floor, splattered it hit even those unwanted minds that curiously tried and unlucky he picked the wrong side of it that in addition he collude without resting him good. Cutting the hands that keeps on throwing those coins will surely stop the curiosity found.

Nothing is impossible if everybody aimed at once to a single target. – Paquito
