Day 149 – First thing this morning the alarm bells were ringing from the nursing home sprinkler system, you can see something happened, look at all the water gushing out of the building. And they have the nerve to complain about the fire hydrant being open, trickling water.
Not only does the nursing home like to waste water, they seem to like wasting electricity by leaving the unnecesarry lights on even in the daytime.
There was not much happening on the line as it was one hot day, the members are still here, trying to stay cool. I remember when they were trying to stay warm at the beginning of the strike, now they are trying to stay cool.
Tonight, the Captain kept his word, he told me yesterday that he was working a 16 hour shift and that he would pass through here after 11:30, sure enough he was here with a patrol car. He witnessed first hand the cars that park in the “strike zone” all night.
He had his men issue summonses to all the cars on the street as well as two cars that were in the nursing home driveway, but parked overlapping the sidewalk. NOTE TO HELEN: Tell your people that they must park behind the building line, not on a public access sidewalk, also make sure not to block the fire exit on the side of the nursing home.
Funny how the staff has plenty of time to stay outside and look at the tickets, read the signs, take pictures, etc. Who’s watching the residents?
Just so everyone knows, the street is considered a “Strike Zone” there is no parking at any time, until which time the strike is over.
Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
