Labelled with love - Squeeze #Cosesquenoacabodentendre

Hi ha moltes coses que no entenc. Bé, és una manera de parlar, ja que normalment si que els entenc, però no voldria .... en fi, entre tot el que no entenc, oblidem de lo gros i anem als detalls que veig cada dia de la vida en els meus viatges cap a la feina i escola.
OK, gent que aparca els seus cotxes malament mentre porten els xiquets a l’escola. No veuen que, encara que ells pensen que « només són 2 minuts », realment si ocupes els passos de vianants i les voreres, estàs posant en perill els altres xiquets que també volen arribar a l’escola. Tampoc entenc com la policia no fa res. La tolerància està molt bé sempre que no es converteix en un perill pels demés, que hem aparcat a 4 minuts de l’escola per no molestar. Gggrr!! 

 
Per creuar la via del tren, (per exemple d’anar al meu barri fins l’escola) tenim una passarel·la que costa 3 minuts en creuar. Si, és un pal. Però la mateixa gent que m’estan insistint que he de pagar per anar a un gimnàs, són els que no usen el pont i passen pels forats de les tanques per creuar la via a peu. Ja sé que no hi ha gaire perill a Tortosa, ja que arriben 3 trens i mig, però trobo que és un mal exemple pels petits, i una oportunitat perduda de estirar les cames. Gggrrr!


Separant els barri de la Raval i la zona d’esports detras dels centres comercials, hi ha la via del tren i un canal. També hi ha una passarel·la per passar-los. L’ajuntament, amb els NOSTRES diners, ha posat tanques molt noves i boniques per evitar que la gent pugui creuar per baix o arribar fins el canal. Pos, la gent els trenquen, i la ajuntament torna a posar-les – amb els NOSTRES diners. Total, alguns que usen aquest camí ràpid, igualment van a fer esport! Ggrrr!!
Per que alguna gent deixa que els seus gossos facin les seves necessitats a les voreres, al voltant de l’escola, i no ho netejen, ni l’ajuntament fa res? Gggrrrr!
Uf, aquí s’acaba el sermó!

...
Things that bug me. Well, actually many things bug me, but today we’re gonna forget the Big Picture and look at those little details I see every day on my way to work or the school run which never fail to bemuse, bewilder, or even bug, me.
Those folks who park there cars illegally while dropping kids off. Yeah, “it’s only two minutes”, but those two minutes you’re spending blocking the pavement or zebra crossing are the two minutes which put the other kids at risk. Kids who have parked maybe in the mega-big car park just a 4-minute walk away. And the police say or do nothing. Aaagghh!

The railway separates my part of town to the neighbourhood with our school and my work-place, but luckily there is a footbridge which takes 3 minutes to cross. What I don’t get are the folk who always insist to me on the importance of going (paying) to a gym and doing sport, but sneak through gaps in the fences and cross the lines directly to save their weary legs a full 3-minute walk. Mmmmm!

A bit further down town, the railway, and a canal, separate one neighbourhood from the area with sports installations and commercial centres. Again, there’s a footbridge. The local council, with OUR money, have put up some cool new fences to stop people crossing the lines or getting down to the canal. Well, now folk rip the fences down to cross the lines, saving the 3-minute marathon (very often on their way to do sport). And the council spend more or MY money to fix it and .... Aaarrgghh!

Dog-owners who let their dogs “do their business” on the pavements, especially around the school, and don’t clean it up. Snif.
And here endeth the rant.

  1. I love a good rnt - it's what blogging was made for - hope you feel a little bit better - as they say "a problem shared is a problem halved" - which of course we all know to be rubbish, but it's kinda cathartic to vent your spleen sometimes.

    First single I went into a record shop and bought for myself was Squeeze - Cool For Cats on pink 7" vinyl. The album "Singles 45's and under" has long been one of my top albums.

  2. Me too, I love Squeeze - andhave kinda given up on my original aim of always linking the song to the post, this day I just happened to be listening to them as I ranted and raved. I'm glad you agree ranting has a place in society, wouldn't want to be accused of being an Angry Old Bloke, though! More than angry, I suppose human nature never fails to surprise me, would be a more politically correct take on my views ;)
