When all hell breaks loose, all you have to do, is make soup. I hate bureaucracy, unfortunately for me, today was one of this days when you can’t postpone doing all the bureaucracy, that was tossed on me by my not so “nice” new neighbor. It all started a few months ago. In Tel Aviv you have to get a local car permit in order to park in your on street. Which is all nice and dandy, it’s just that ever since I moved I manged to get a permit through a back door, not having to get my pretty little ass to city hall. I know people like me are lazy…… blaa blaa blaa, spare me.
If I can mange to do something without having to sit in front of a clerk, or waiting in line for hours, trust me I will defiantly avoid the first option. Having said that, a few months ago, we got a new very annoying next door neighbor. He does not know how to round up corners, and is very anal. So he started shaking things up in the building. Thanks to that, I had to get myself all the way to city hall, today. I had to sit in line for thirty minute, I had to wait some more. Just to be told that I have to get back there tomorrow, with my landlord, hoping that the city will clerks will take there heads out of there a…… and understand that as citizen I have rights.
You can say that this is life. You can sit and read this not getting what the hell am I complaining about. But for me doing all this unnecessary boring and annoying stuff is just NOT FUN. So, when I got home, I figured the only thing that can lift my “oh so pissed off spirit” was make some delicious cauliflower soup. You are going to love this soup. It’s easy and quick to make.
Wish me luck tomorrow, as I get back to the fields of bureaucracy.
