Name: Emma
From: Ireland
Living in: Amsterdam

Emma says she moved here because she felt isolated in Ireland and wanted to live in a big city with all the energy it comes with.

The first company Emma worked at had offices on the 16th floor of a highrise in Rotterdam. Looking down from the smokers balcony Jennifer watched for days as window cleaners worked their way up the building in the cold & in constant rain.

Jennifer says the sky was so dark, she could “feel” the cold from indoors.

It’s the Irish’ way to always take care of guests so Emma couldn’t help wanting to “ease their suffering.”
On the day the workers reached Emma’s floor she offered them all something to drink. Her mostly Dutch team burst out laughing – there’s a show from long ago where a housewife offers tradesmen to come inside for coffee, but implies there’s a lot more on offer.

Of course she was embarrassed but then realised it was worth it, she felt good about her kindness. And then how fantastic – the window cleaners really appreciated something hot to drink. And while she was at it – she threw in some snacks from an earlier meeting (it was a fun revenge to her colleagues). And cake – because there’s always cake in big companies.

All of this served from her spot on the balcony. This spread really good laughter amongst the team and the window cleaners.

And the funny side – the window cleaners passed by a few days later with a sign saying “thank you for feeding us, please the same order next time.”
