The strike is not about the fact that
Somebody cry me a river.
I don’t get the day off – and I don’t want to take the day off. I have work to do, which I want to do, and because my bike is in the shop I had to (1) walk the girls to school and then (2) walk myself to the office. I was worried that if I drove there would be gridlock and nowhere to park.
(However I needn't have worried and in fact will drive later on when I usually don't -- a great result, eh?)
As far as I can see this annual exercise achieves only (1) irritation among those who have work to do and (2) forces people to drive who usually wouldn't. Good grief, can someone please spare us?
