A number of mailmen and -women went on strike in Ghent today as a protest against their heavy workload.
Ehrm, excuse me, just exactly what do they want to achieve by this? The letters aren’t exactly going to go away – they’ll just pile up in the warehouses. And once Postman Piet and his colleagues get back to work, they’ll consequently have a much larger workload to deal with. Which was why they went on strike in the first place.
I’ve said it before: this country goes on strike way too easily and frivolously. Sometimes, it seems, without thinking about what the cost will be for themselves.
