Strike!

by

As of this morning, there is indeed a wildcat strike involving almost all of the trash collectors in Stockholm! Noone knows what will happen and there’s general confusion. Not to worry though, the board governing my house has put up a sign!

"STRIKE! Please dispose of only household garbage in the supplied plastic bags. Wait with other garbage until the strike is over."

"STRIKE! Please dispose of only household garbage in the supplied plastic bags. Wait with other garbage until the strike is over."

As an anectode, one evening last spring I (for reasons unknown) left a garbage bag on my balcony. Next morning it had been opened by a flight of gulls. I felt very stupid.

    OOh, strejk is another fun word, like skräp. Who knew I’d learn more Swedish garblogging than from an actual trip to Sweden?

    Fingers crossed for early settlement of the strike, Victor. If not, we’ll have to do a post on seagull-proofing of trash!
