Strikes making life uncomfortable

I didn't realize that the there were strikes yesterday until late in the day. I am so annoyed by the power being cut that I can't begin to tell you. Luckily, we were all safe at home and not stuck out somewhere. Our power was cut last night at dusk. I couldn't cook dinner so we ate sandwiches by candlelight. I made a special note to myself-I need to buy unscented candles! Lighting the house with about 10 different scented candles got to be a little nauseating.
So here's what I'm thinking-Is it really rational for the stikers to believe that it's ok to cut power so that 2 trams collide and people are getting trapped in elevators? Is this civilization when striking workers think it's ok to put public safety at risk? The court will determine whether the actions of these striking workers is illegal or not-I say it's illegal, irrational and completely irresponsible.

  1. I was really sorry to hear about the strikes. It really is a thing in Greece that if the government tries to take away something from you, you can't just sit back and let it, you have to do something. This is the Greek attitude. It's bad that people suffer for it but then again, how often do each of us think of the poor buggers who work in the power stations every day so we can have our TVs and hot showers? They deserve to be paid well and have a decent pension when they retire. Unfortunately, nobody has yet come up with a suitable way to get the government to listen to the citizens that doesn't involve inconvenience to the common man. If we could do this, it would be a much better world.

    I do like those spring photos. Only 3 days more till I get to smell the scent for real!

    Take care
    (Maybe this is a good opportunity for a romantic, candlelit dinner!) ;)
