Besides being a pop band and the former Prime Minister of Sweden favorite band a buzz is also an rumor flying around and from yesterday the word is that on Friday the strike takes a new turn here in Paris… Well, if true we had 4 normal days. But seriously, the big unrest, sorry, demonstrations been on Thursdays since the beginning of December 2019, awful enough, but on a Friday? People want to go home, prepare the weekend and maybe even start the weekend with a small apéro after work. Apéro, the French AW (After Work), normally also includes food. Not only, as in Sweden, the famous “I stay for one beer”, and 6 beers later you find yourself out clubbin’.
So the unions here have decided to attack the weekends and go crazy on a Friday. Merci Beaucoup!!! For me another issue raised, my French Classes start on Friday and Inlingua is located kind of behind Champs Elysees. A total blockage of Champs Elysees is not unheard of when the Unions and Yellow west movement destroy peoples way back home after work so I don’t know if I shall cancel or not. If I cancel today the lesson is moved into the future but if I cancel tomorrow it’s “used”, strike or no strike.
And in all this I start to think that with Marine Le Pen in charge some order will return to the streets of Paris, remember that Macron did not win the President election cause people loves him, the reason were they don’t like the alternative, in this case Le Pen. But I’m sure she would have contracted the Légion étrangère to take care of the strike horny part of the population.
Yes, that is how tiered I am of the Unions and the Pension discussions in France at the moment. I am so sorry, I will be nicer to you all when life is back to normal.
