Poseidon's Square

Poseidon's Square

It's starting to look like a real building site at Poseidon's Square in Handen now. Six apartment buildings will be built here next to the cultural centre. As I took a few photos one of the workers, a truck driver, came up to me. He waited for me to finish shooting, and then asked me if I worked there. Nope, I'm just taking a few quick photos. He then informed me that I couldn't stand where I was shooting, as I was maybe two steps in on the building site, where absolutely nothing was happening. I answered, no worries, I know the building site manager. The truck driver wasn't too impressed by that and responded in Moronic (is that a language?), I really don't give a shit about that. So I told him, also in Moronic, that I don't give a shit about anything he has to say to me. And that was that. I was done, so I took two steps back and was on my way as he took off in his truck.

I have had some close encounters with these Moronic-speaking guys, always ready with preposterous claims about this or that place. Moronic is a true international language...

hahaha. that happened recently to us in the mall; we could not take pics in the mall with a "professional camera". however, taking pics with a phone or "normal" (???) camera was ok, especially if it would be of each other rather than the building itself. as, since 9/11, we could be taking pictures of the building structure of the mall. and malls are terrorist targets these days.
and i really look like a terrorist...

When you see this thing moving everyday and then somewhere else in another plot of land in the city, it is a good sign !! I think ...

I have engaged in a few Moronic conversations like that one. As VP says, Moronic is an international language.

Is that moron in charge of the crane? Yipes!

Steffe said...

No, he was "only" a truck driver. Perhaps he had a bad day.

No, they are a breed. We have people like that in England, we call them 'A Jobsworth'. As in, 'It's more than my job's worth, to let you do that'.
