This wouldn’t fly in Germany because someone would scream “violation of privacy” and lawsuits would ensue, but in Bolivia
and in Romania,
there are lists in the entrance hall of apartment complexes showing the tenants’ names and what they respectively owe for utilities.
In Romania, all of my neighbors could thus see how economically I used electricity, gas and water. But it was very practical that I could pay to the friendly lady in apartment no. 7, who had her office at the kitchen table, and who gave me a huge plate of cookies when it was time to say good-bye after one year in Târgu Mureș.
At least one truth out of Iraq Ali’s mouth: Bush and Blair villains.
I was never a fan of President Bush II, but after only two weeks of Trump, I would take him back anytime.
I think….in Germany..non payment of bills would soon be screamed at…so such a state of affairs could not arise? That’s how I remember Germany…if you do anything wrong..AT ALL….you get yelled at, by strangers who may have nothing to do with whatever it is, you did wrong ..Very impressive..eg…I had a frail dog and had to warm up the car, before bringing her down, into winter air..from a hotel room. It wasnt a very stinky car…but a bit smokey…Took me about ten minutes…When I got to the car with aged dog, wrapped in her duvet…there was a crowd of people, on the other side of the road…shouting and gesturing.. I waved back..first I thought it was a kind of local friendship thing…but then one bloke pointed ..looking angrier… at my exhaust pipe..How do you apologise for a faintly stinky car…if you don’t know the German.?.. Bowing and waving didn’t cut it…. 😨
Oh yes, doing something to destroy the environment is unacceptable. It is also a misdemeanor, § 30 I 2 StVO. So your neighbors were actually nice by not calling the police and by trying to stop your pollution before the police would randomly come by and levy a huge fine on you. I think it’s 10 EUR for that particular offense.
Thank you. You made me laugh. Destroying the environment……. One of your cigars, then, must be enough to get you strapped on the gurney…after your last ever, sausage supper..
But cigars are 100% natural, vegetarian and vegan. That can’t be bad!
