Its January 2012 and truckers in Italy are pissed.
Well, they’re not the only ones, it seems that everybody in that country wants to crash the strike party on account of the government’s austerity plans.
Course, strikes are nothing new to the big bad boot but how tough must things be when even lowly lawyers are thinking of joining the thousands of PO’d truckers and taxi drivers whom
are prepared to do nothing rather than allow things to continue as they are.
Soon the domino-no-no big riggers and their learned friends may be joined
by pharmacists, gas station owners (nice) as well as sectors of Italy’s public
transport system. Yep, everyday life in the land of leaning Pisa just
got a bit more uncomfortable but its citizens shouldn’t be too
concerned about whether they will garner the support of
the world community because historical studies and
several currently underway clearly predict that
whatever the planet stepped in will soon be
stinking up the entire global wardrobe.
Thank you, friend.
