In Lowly Old Venezuela Nothing Ever Goes Right
Halfway through this story I highlighted (and added a note) related to 4 things people generally take for granted in other parts of the world but that here in semi-communist poor ol’ Venezuela you just can’t count on anymore.
- Appointments are hardly ever kept. People either show up late or not at all.
- Cars work but once they break down the cost of fixing them forces many to simply leave them parked at home until better economic times come (never?).
- The lights come on? I wouldn’t bet on it.
- There’s plenty of toilet paper? Now that’s plain mean of you to make such a statement, just like that.
So yeah, I guess here in Venezuela we can go ahead and worry all we want about how everything will eventually go horribly, horribly wrong.
