INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TERMINAL, morning:


Airline passenger: Is there something going on with all of the little pieces of paper on the ground?

Airline check-in desk representative: Yes, the cleaning staff of the airport is on strike.


AP: Oh wow, how long have they been on strike?


ACDR: Since Monday.


AP: Hmmmmmm…all of this trash has accumulated just since Monday?


ACDR: Well, no.


AP: You mean the cleaning staff had some hundreds of bags of trash stored in a closet somewhere and decided to break them out and distribute their contents throughout the terminal to make a statement when the strike began?


ACDR: [ Nods in the affirmative ]


AP: I think I like their leader.
