I just read this on the BBC news website:
Staff at Paris’s Louvre museum have gone on strike, demanding a bonus for the stress of looking after the Mona Lisa and other popular masterpieces.
Hmm. I’m not anti-trade union or against collective bargaining, but it can’t exactly have come as much of a surprise to the staff at the Louvre that
a) the Mona Lisa was housed there – after all, it’s been there for quite a while now, and
b) that lots of people might want to see it.
Do you get where I’m coming from? Am I becoming less tolerant?

I hear you. I understand people are under pressure but it does sound a lot like going for a job in a busy department store and then complaining that there are too many customers and wanting more money as a result.
