Two minutes of silence today?

November 11, 2009

So, at the car auction, the announcements were clear. At eleven o’clock staff stopped what they were doing and so did most of the customers; but far from all. I had expected this so I had locked my car to stand at its side.

Through the whole two minutes there were still many punters wandering around, getting in to cars, even re-starting the engines we’d switched off, making and taking phone calls and joking and talking. In the canteen some tried to insist on being served during this time.

They should be ashamed of themselves, but I don’t suppose they will be.
