I have been in this industry for 4 years now. I would be just another guy working in the Technolgy Services (out of 1 MM). But recently I realized I have the swipe Flu. Now what is Swipe flu?
To get more understanding of it, let’s look into a day of my life at work.
I enter the building with the identity card worn around my neck, which dances around with each step I take. I swipe the card at the reader to open the door. I swipe the card at my department door. I swipe the card when I go out to the break out area(coffee machine area). I swipe the card at the door when I walk out of the building. I swipe the card when I go out to cafeteria.I realized that my hand automatically picks up the card and swipe it at the reader every time I see a door. I am doing this subconsciously. I do it when I am walking out of the door talking to my colleague, or when I am on the phone. I don’t even realize that I am doing it every time I open a door.
Well I realized there is something wrong when I tried opening the lift door with my card. And when I tried opening the apartment door with my card.
I almost lost it when I tired to open my car door with my i-card.
I talked to a colleague of mine and he said these are symptoms of something called the swipe flu.
I wish if we would have just used a register at the reception.
Do you have these symptoms?
