Today I received a voice message from a Dr. of the Ministry of Fomento (Civil aviation) that said: "Please call me back, as soon as possible, to this number, your license has been renewed by error.
I panicked, but once I talked to him he said they had given me a pilots license and they would be very grateful if I could go to the Ministry to exchange it for the correct license (flight attendant).
I donīt need to tell you how stressed I was. I donīt really care loosing my license. In fact I would like to become a PVT (flying crew working in offices). I think I could do a great job licking stamps, closing envelopes or doing something useful and difficult like that: But I would have to give explanations at home and I donīt want my family to find out about my diagnosis.
Thank God nothing of that happened.
Today I am a Pilot!

Oh, Lord, Juan! You had me holding my breath for a minute!  I'm glad it turned out okay, but damn, you scared me!

Can you get into a special lounge with that thing before you turn it in??
