【GDC特集⑦】終わりよければ全てよし

*English translation below

お疲れ様ですー
今年GDCメンバーに選ばれた、謎の外国人アップです!

「パスは現金として扱ってください」
「パスなくしたら再発行、元値段と同等の料金とられますよー」
行く前に散々GDC固定メンバーの「A」さんに注意されましたなぁ…

なのに!私!見事に初日の終わりに参加パスなくしちゃいました!(≧∇≦)/

困りましたね…すぐに会場ぐるぐる探し回ったが、怪しい人物と思われ警備員に話しかけられました(笑) 事情話したら探すのを手伝ってくれると言われて、警備員さんとても優しいです…

ぐるぐる探した後、カスタマーサービスに参加パスを届いてたよという情報を警備員さんの同僚から情報をいただきました!ですが、時間は夜6時CSもう閉まってる…明日取りに行くしかない…でも、とりあえずこれで安心して眠れる…なわけ無いですよね…他のメンバーに話したら怒られたり、脅されたり、眠れませんよー

そして、なんやかんや次の日を迎えました…CSに行けば私のパスが届いているはず…行けばそこにあるはずだ!信じてるぞ!

見事に期待裏切られました…CSさんに聞いたら確認しますっと言われました…絶対にあると安心して待ってたらまさかの、届いてるパスがない!昨日の警備員のおじさんが届いているって言ってたのに!!
嘘だーとりあえずLost and Foundに聞いてみてとおすすめられました…これが遠いんですよ、別ビルにあるから…まぁ行くけど…そして答えは…ジャーン♪「届いておりません」!!!はい、詰んだー

昨日の警備員のおじさんを信じてもう一回CSさんに…今度交渉術満点の「A」さんを連れて!
そしてしつこくぐらい「A」さんがペラペラの英語でCSさん追い詰めたら、もう一回確認しますって言われました!あれ、さっき確認したよね…あれ?まさかの…さっきは確認してない…じゃないよね?
そしてなんと別の人が来て、昨日から届いてる落とし物のパスはいっぱいあるよ!え?さっき届いてないって言ったおじさんは?え?え?混乱しながら見事にパス再発行もしてらえました(無料)!

届いているけど確認漏れてるか、私に再度パス売りつけようとするか、本当は届いてないけどしつこいから再発行してくれたかどれかがワカラナイけど無事に戻ってくれてなによりだ!怒られなくって済む!(怒られましたけどね)いい勉強になりましたよ…人生の…

みんなもGDCだけではなく、他のイベントに参加する時にもちゃんとパスなくさないように気をつけましょうね…できればパスだけではなく何もかもなくさないように気をつけましょう!
また、CSなどに適当な対応取られないように担当の名前は聞くといい…ってネットに書いてありました(笑)…

PS
日本に戻った後同僚の「T」さん財布失くしました!(無事に見つかったらしいです)
いやぁ、本当に家に帰るまではGDCだ!油断大敵ですね…

【GDC Report⑦】 ~All’s well that ends well~

Hey Team!
This is AP, the mysterious foreigner chosen to be a member of this year’s GDC!

“Please treat the pass as if it were cash.”
“If you lose your pass , it costs the same price as the original to reissue it.”
Before leaving, we were harshly warned by GDC regular member ‘A.’

Nevertheless! I did it! I managed to lose my participation pass at the end of my first day!

I was in a tight spot…I immediately looked around the venue for it, and apparently I looked like a shady individual because I was grilled by a security guard (lol).
After I told him my situation, he offered me to help looking for the pass! he was very nice…

After going round and round looking for it, the guard received info from one of his colleagues that a participation pass had been found and delivered to customer service! But it was already 6:00 PM, and customer service was closed…I’d have to get it the next day…still, at least now I can sleep soundly…yeah, right, as if…if I talk to the other members, they’ll be pissed, scold and threaten me, there’s no way I can sleep…

And so, I somehow rose to face the next day…knowing that if I go to customer service, my pass will have arrived…if I go it should be there! I believe!

But I was splendidly betrayed…I asked at customer service and they said they’d check…and I waited with the relief of absolute certainty that they had it, but no way! The pass wasn’t there! But the security guard guy yesterday said it had arrived there!
It was a lie…they recommended that for the time being I enquire with Lost and Found…which was far, in a separate building…well, I have to go, so…and when I got there, Tada! The answer: “we haven’t received it here.” Yep. Checkmate.

I decided to believe the security guard from yesterday, and try at customer service one more time…this time, together with the master of negotiation, ‘A.’ And then, when ‘A’ doggedly cornered the customer service worker with a stream of perfect English, the latter said that he would check again! What? But you checked before, right? Right? Don’t tell me…you…didn’t check before…did you?
Then, a different person came, who said that they have received lots of dropped passes from yesterday! What?!? What about the guy who just said they hadn’t received anything? Seriously? While I was confused, miraculously, I was able to have them reissue a pass (for free)!

I don’t know whether it had arrived but hadn’t been confirmed, or they were trying to sell me another pass, or it hadn’t actually arrived but they reissued another one because I was so insistent, but anyway, all that matters is that I was able to safely return. The matter can be concluded without a scolding! (I was scolded, though, actually) I learned a valuable lesson…about life…

Everyone! Not only at GDC, but when participating in other events as well, be careful not to misplace your pass…and ideally, not just your pass, but be careful not to misplace anything!
Also, its a good idea not to be taken by the half-hearted support of customer service or others, and ask for the name of the person in charge…or so they said online (lol)

PS.
After returning to Japan, my coworker ‘T’ lost his wallet! (I heard it was safely recovered)
Anyway, until we really head home, it is GDC! Unpreparedness is one’s greatest enemy…
