“I am le tired…”

From today’s newspaper:

Le courrier ne sera pas distribué aujourd’hui. A l’appel de FO, les postiers de Saint-Pierre ont décidé de faire jouer leur droit de retrait pour protester contre leurs conditions de travail. Ils dénoncent les nuisances occasionnées par les travaux à la Poste de Saint-Pierre. A savoir : beaucoup de poussière et de bruit. N’ayant pas eu de réponse de la part de leur direction, ils ont donc décidé de ne pas distribuer le courrier ce matin.

Or in English, “No mail will be distributed today.  At the request of the worker’s union, post office employees of Saint-Pierre have decided to take the day off in protest against their working conditions.  They are complaining of the occasional nuissances caused by construction at the Post Office of Saint-Pierre.  Read: lots of dust and noise.  Having had no response from their supervisors, they have therefore decided not to distribute the mail this morning.”

CLASSIC FRENCH MANEOUVRE!
