World Trade Center Barcelona
I manage an international company, with contracts all over the world. As part of our growth strategy, yes growth, I have recently opened an office in the WTC in Barcelona.
I need a parking space for my Sales Manager there. So I ask for a contract from the building and they send me one in Catalan. Now I am Welsh, so I assume it is an admin error and ask for one in Spanish or English.
The response is: "We only have Catalan. We are a Catalan company. We have destroyed everything that isn't in Catalan." Now obviously they haven't destroyed everything as my company still thrives but they are doing their best. World Trade Center? Village Idiot Centre.
