Irish water and honesty


Recommended Posts

This is a chat discussion I had with my brother over Irish bottled water and honesty. It is in Cantonese. If you are interested you could take a look. You could also share your views.

我:人民質素高。頭先有個女人問我點畀錢,我話放落個箱,渠話it's a good idea. 我答 if people are honest.

弟: 香港都得嘅

我: 我唔信。

弟: 香港輕鐵都係靠人自律啦,全自助捉到無買票罰得好甘

我: 呢道渠無講明罰,我無知,唔識英文,渠引人犯罪。

我: 徒惹無謂爭拗,其實用自動販賣機都差唔多,都唔使點排隊。

弟: 如果要講到明偷野係有罪靠嚇d人先至會守法咁呢個民族無希望啦,超市咁多野值錢過枝水走去偷1€枝水個賊係咪侮辱自己?

我: 咁方便,唔偷過唔到自己嗰關。賊梗係捨難取易。

弟: 睇得出你咁諗

我: 我係官僚,梗會咁諗。呢個安排究竟有乜實際或象徵意義同好處呢?可以寫篇學術文章。

弟: 努力努力

Actually most of us would pay but I doubt we would all pay the full amount. A family of 5 might give 3 euro and take 5 bottles.

Remember its practically unheard of for people to buy bottled water in Ireland. Tap water is very clean, cleaner than most of Europe in fact as we have teritary treatment of drinkable water. Also low population and constant rain means we are not exactly suffering from a shortage :-D
