Apparently there’s a taxi strike today in Seoul. A cursory squiz out the window confirms this. I see no taxis. I read in the news that the taxi drivers are striking for more money, and maybe it’s right — maybe they need the money but really all I care about is how much more peaceful it sounds out there. Now if we could just get all the motorbike/motor scooter food delivery dudes to go on strike too…

One thought on “empty the cities”

  1. Yes. The truck drivers of Australia went on strike a few years back to protest against diesel prices being too high. For 1 day I didn’t hear an exhaust brake at all. Their slogan for the strike was “Without trucks Australia stops”. There was a sign on a power pole near my house with the slogan on it, I took my permanent marker up one night and changed the ‘stops’ to ‘sleeps’.
