“As the Antlers Turn….” scene 13

Sunday, March 6th, 2011
I need to get half serious.

One sheet, pillow case, towel, wash cloth...at a time.

It’s very busy around here. 

The snow is “epic”.  The atmosphere is festive. Grand-parents, parents, kids, cousins and friends are all having a thrill. 

Un-noticed while the outside world spins is the quiet man. This particular person is working as hard as anyone at the Antlers this time of year. You need to know what goes on downstairs and what he does.  A few facts and history.

One of the requirements on the original job description stated “individual must have the ability to work independently”.  Aniceto Quinones was looking at the classifieds in 1994 and jumped out of his chair and ran to the kitchen where his wife was cooking his favorite meal.  “Ilda, Ilda, I found the job I want.  I’m going to the Antlers to tell them I’m their man.”  Millie Barela hired him that week to take care of the overwhelming laundry situation we have here.  Ever since, he’s been the first here in the morning, one of the last to leave at night and he takes his job very seriously.  On average, Aniceto works 10 hours a day because he wants to and as Randi put it “we have to force him to take a vacation.”

He told me “I love my job and it is very important not to fall behind.  If we miss one day it is very hard to catch up.  Our guests would not like drying themselves after a shower with a wash cloth.” 

“So how much laundry is there Aniceto?”  He got out a scratch pad and started writing numbers down and then multiplying them by storage closets and whoa.  “Many thousands every week and do not forget that I have to do bath mats, bedding and throw rugs.”  He also tears and squares linens and towels that are not up to standards for guest use.  Those are recycled for housekeepers to use as rags.  He washes those as well.

The laundry facility that Aniceto calls his home away from home, is not what it was 15 years ago.  With one washer and two dryers, he managed until our 2000 building expansion which incorporated 22 additional condominiums.  It is now equipped with the newest and most efficient machines available. 
 

Two commercial washers and three large capacity dryers are his co-workers for most of the day.

A few questions for the man.
“Do you and Ilda have any kids?”  “Yes, four and one grandson.”
“When you do take vacation, any place special?”  “Cancun or Durango, Mexico.”
“How about hobbies?”  “Not really.  But I do enjoy my walks along the creek everyday.”
“Football or Soccer?”  “Football and not the kind that John Elway played.”
“Favorite Food?”  “Chile Relenoes.”
“Beer or Wine?”  “Beer.”
“Dog or Cat?”  “Dog.”
Lunch is fun. Sometimes it’s nice to be out numbered.

(Honorable mentions need to go to Cristobal, Darwin, Macario, Calletano and Bryan who fill in when Aniceto sleeps, and who could forget Igor.)
