JC, as you can see is a half Mexican gangster and half American however, he does not joke around on this fact. Seriously he doesn’t! Just kidding. Or not.
He started at A-Bike as a ‘team player’ in the shop but his unique personality and love for Amsterdam took him out in the city as an A-Bike Tour Guide! He studied Biological Sciences and he is planning to go further and become a heart surgeon starting next September! Too much patience!
Let’s see what else he got to say to our colleague about himself:
What is your name?
Juan Carlos but I like to be called JC
What is your nickname?
What languages do you speak?
I speak English and Spanish
Why people tighten the remote control more strongly when it is running out of batteries?
I think it is just psychological, more you hit more electricity will work.
Which is your favorite place in the world?
Home because it is where my family is.
How do you start a conversation?
With a simple hi, how are you doing?
How do you end one?
I will say bye but more like see you later.
What is the longest you have gone without sleep?
24 hours, I was studying. It sounded like I was traveling the world but I was just studying.
If I told you that I know your future what would be the first thing you would ask me?
Where will I be in ten years?
What was the first thing you did when you came to Amsterdam?
I have just moved to my new place.
What is the weirdest thing about you?
Let me think for a second… That I like science. Is it weird?
Airplane, car, spaceship, boat, motorcycle, walk, bicycle, hover, subway or teleportation?
What was the last gift you gave to someone and when?
It was to my flatmate, it was his birthday and I gave him a JoJo and a beer.
Do you like your job and why?
I do like it. You can always interact with different people from all around the world, which is nice.
What was your most strange experience with a customer and why?
I think it was a guy who needed a lot of help, he asked me to fix his phone holder on the bike and after about thirty minutes and a multiple of requests he left, he was just taking a lot of time.
How does internet work?
Who knows? Wireless?
Can you recall your favorite customer while at A-bike and why?
It was a girl from Boston, she was traveling by herself, she was looking for something to do and finally, she went on a tour. I turned up being the tour guide that day and then we were just chatting about our home.
What makes you wanna sleep?
How many sips does it take for an average person to drink a pint of beer?
I will say 56 sips. But it really depends on the person (laughing)
Spider-Man or Batman?
Superman just because he can appear out of nowhere just like now.
What do you work toward in your free time?
Football and drinks, they come with hand and hand after the game.
A penguin comes into the shop and asks to rent a bike, what do you do?
I’ll be shocked that he is speaking to me. I will run away.
Why is the sky blue?
This is the way the light reflects on the atmosphere
Do you feel lucky or unlucky and why?
I feel lucky, I have been a lucky person.
What inspires you?
My family, all these years they gave me so much and did a lot for me, without asking nothing in return.
What is your favorite fruit?
Strawberries, you can put them with a lot of staff. Cream and strawberries, chocolates and strawberries, anything sweet fits with strawberries.
What would you say to Jesus Christ if he appeared in front of you right now?
It is about time that you showed up Jesus.
Which is your favorite video game?
Have you ever date a customer?
Do you believe in time machines?
It is possible, not now but in the future, it could be.
How do you define stress and what do you do to tackle it?
Stress is not only mental but physical as well. You are just overwhelmed by everything. How do you overcome it? You just take one step back and take one thing at the time.
Which would be the next three countries you would like to travel to.
Japan, Ireland and the Czech Republic!
