OH NO!!



Yes, they are on strike again, there are no trains because the engineers don't want to work 40 years like everybody else, they want to retire after 37 years,- because they're worth it!
The French love being on strike, they like the feeling of being able to decide themselves, they can't stand having someone who tells them what to do. Sometimes I get the impression that they elect a president every five years, regret their choice 10 months later and spend 4 years and 2 months criticizing.
Poor Nicolas, it's tough being a president in a country full of obstinate children with the right to vote.

Only 56% of the French population disapprove the strike. Now different groups, dissatisfied with the goverment, are gathering to prepair a HUGE strike, the bigger the better.
Deep inside people think it's exciting to see how far they can go, it's a kind of an entertainement.
-I don't- I just want them to stop their strike so I can continue my hebrew lessons in Paris, isn't that selfish!

Still on strike.
Yes they love to strike.
And people are defending them, they think that its the best thing to do, even though that they found an agreement with the gouvernement, probably it was not good enough.
